Dita Von Teese’s Advice For Owning Your Personal Style

Dita Von Teese owns her signature retro style, and in her newest advice column for XO Jane, she’s teaching everyone to do the same.

A reader asked Von Teese how she deals with the “unwanted attention” that comes with dressing up every day. The answer is plain and simple: ignore what others say, work on your self-confidence, and keep on trucking with your hot self!

Von Teese attributes her fearless style to women like Marlene Dietrich and Isabella Blow, and writes:

“Can you imagine if Marlene Dietrich had merely accepted that hotels in Paris wouldn’t welcome her while she was wearing a man’s tuxedo? Can you imagine the things people might have said as Isabella Blow wafted down the street in a billowing cape and one of her many enormous hats? I’d met her a few times, always astonished by her inspiring style, and I can tell you that she certainly didn’t give a crap what anyone thought of her, and for me and many others, she is highly regarded as one of the most important and most fashionable women ever.”

Touché.
