Dita Von Teese's fashion inspiration

Dita Von Teese models her look on Sharon Stone.

The 43-year-old burlesque dancer has revealed she loves to emulate the "good, strong look" of the 58-year-old actress in 1995's 'Casino' when she heads to Las Vegas.

Discussing what she wears for visits to The Strip, she said: "I wear late '50s and early '60s dresses, keeping in mind that the air conditioning means everything is always ice cold. I always have my arms covered there.

"I think a lot about the whole Rat Pack era and, of course, we all want to look like Sharon Stone in 'Casino'. That's a good, strong look."

Meanwhile, Dita also praised the American city for "encouraging" people to opt for a glamorous look.

She told Vegas magazine: "I love how Las Vegas encourages people to get dressed up and make an effort. I feel that Vegas is historically a glamorous place, so I love getting really dressed up when I go there.

"I always try to uphold this sense of glamour when I'm in Vegas, but I have to admit it's not always easy when the general population is in Crocs. There's a lot of 'athleisure-wear' there. I hope it will evolve back into what it used to be."
