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.”
