Dita Von Teese entranced a crowd of Hollywood royalty recently as she performed a seductive burlesque routine at the Beverly Hills Hotel's 100th anniversary party and the kickoff of Cointreau’s Poolside Soirees.
Dressed in a custom-made costume by Jenny Packman, Von Teese charmed guests like Natalie Portman, Marisa Tomei and Mary-Louise Parker as she danced with two large feathered fans.
So what’s the secret to her alluring ways? Dita’s sharing her top tips with us.
SheKnows: What’s the easiest way to turn on your man?
Dita: Black lingerie. Simple. It never fails me.
SheKnows: What’s your favorite lingerie brand?
Dita: I have my own, Von Follies. It’s not yet available in the U.S. It’s my favorite because I get to design things I want in my own wardrobe.
SheKnows: Where do you get inspiration for your designs?
Dita: A lot of it is inspired by vintage lingerie. I love black lace. My first collection had a lot of black lace layered over colors like turquoise and red.
SheKnows: What’s the best way to keep your man thinking about you all day?
Dita: The best way is to leave him alone. You have to be mysterious, a little bit hard to get. It’s a game and they like to hunt. You can’t be too pushy.
SheKnows: Is that all?
Dita: And I like sexting. I like textual chemistry.
SheKnows: Some say it’s with food -- what do you think is the way to a man’s heart?
Dita: Humor. Laughter is a great way. A man needs to see that you’re not just a pretty face and that you’re fun and have chemistry outside of the bedroom.
SheKnows: What is your favorite date night activity?
Dita: It depends on where we are in the relationship, but for certain men, I might like to entertain in my house and cook. But you have to earn that spot. Generally, I like to go out to dinner and go for a nice walk in Paris or something.
Make Dita’s favorite cocktail for entertaining:
Cointreau, Lime & Perrier
- 2 ounces Cointreau
- 1 ounce fresh lime juice
- Combine all ingredients over ice in a highball glass.
- Stir briefly.
