Dita Von Teese brings the 'past' to life

Dita Von Teese brings the "past" to life through her style.

The 42-year-old burlesque star revealed she wants to show people "another time" through her distinct look - which includes wearing low-cut corsets that ooze femininity - and likes to mix it up with fetish pieces, such as elbow-length cloves and skyscrapper heels.

Dita shared: "My aim has always been to capture the spirit of the past but to show people something they haven't seen before; to bring something new to the aesthetic of another time ... I always love distinctive, feminine silhouettes with a touch of whimsy plus something fetishistic, like an opera length leather glove, a skyscraper patent stiletto paired with a fully-fashioned contrast seamed stocking. It's all about timeless, luxe, unusual details."

Meanwhile, the femme fatale is set to appear as a guest judge on the season finale of GSN series 'Steampunk'd' - which sees contestants compete to be named the best retro-futurist designer in America.

Dita will judge hopefuls on the "originality and quality" in their designs and thinks the show is line with her fashion ethos.

The star told "It captures the spirit of the past but brings it into the future. It's about imagination and the absolutely exquisite."
