Dita Von Teese On When Tacos and Corsets Collide

She won't be caught dead in denim, but Dita Von Teese is nevertheless oh-so approachable in every which way. Sure, she has a style (and body) to be envied, can carry off a corset like no other, and makes audiences swoon with her expert burlesque dancing, but the beauty has a soft spot for tacos. Tacos! She can join our lingerie-lacking, sweatpants-filled girls night anytime!

Aside from being superiorly and effortlessly stylish, Von Teese has a pretty sweet new gig too–she's the current symbol of celebration for the luxurious W Hotel chain. In honor of the opening of W Beijing Chang'an, the cabaret showstopper has kicked off a mini tour around some of the stateside W Hotels, including New York and San Francisco. Decked in glittering beads, diamond embellishments, and adorning feathers, Von Teese performs for hotel audiences in a golden oversized birdcage, symbolic of China’s multi-century love affair with bird keeping. Before she was whisked away to prepare for the W SF Rock the Empire show, Glam had the honor of getting to know the burlesque babe a little better.
