Dita: part 2


Modelling turned to Burlesque when Dita started collecting vintage mens magazines from the 30s and 40s and learnt about burlesque stars Sally Rand and Gypsy Rose Lee. She created as her trademark a striptease in a giant martini glass, where she bathes herself using a giant sponge, shaped like an olive. Her performances with L.A. burlesque revue The Pussycat Dolls and her Playboy cover were the catalysts to propel her into the mainstream. More notoriety came in the form of her relationship with Marilyn Manson. They share a five-storey house in the Hollywood Hills which is decorated with taxidermied animals and a seven foot human skeleton that they call Ernie. Here, she often bakes cookies for him in her stilettos and corset. Her next project is also culinary based. As well as touring her rhinestone-studded burlesque show round the world, she is also launching a vintage cookery book.
