Dita Von Teese Launches Her New “Muse” Dress Collection

Are there any celebrities left without a clothing line? Apparently not. Looks like even not-so-famous stars are throwing their hats into the ring these days. Enter Dita Von Teese. The burlesque star and ex-girlfriend of Marilyn Manson has launched her first-ever dress collection.

Born Heather Renée Sweet, the 39-year-old announced that her retro five-piece capsule collection, consisting of four vintage-inspired dresses and one tulle-layered trench coat, will be sold exclusively in Australia through retailer David Jones starting in November.  “David Jones is thrilled to launch the highly-anticipated Dita Von Teese Muse collection into the Australian market,” said DJ’s General Manager of Womenswear David Bush.  “The brand will compliment and sit well amongst our portfolio of leading international and Australian brands. Its’ feminine aesthetic and strong tailoring are reflective of Dita herself and it is this celebration of the female silhouette that we believe our customers will respond really well to and be excited by.”

Dita Von Teese Muse will have a limited black, red, and rose color palette often worn by the actress in real life and features silk crèpe de Chine lining, corsetry and couture detailing in clothing sizes 8 to 20 Australian (4 to 16 U.S.). “Offering a collection that caters to women of all sizes is very important to me,” the curvaceous Dita said in a press statement. “Muse is designed to complement a multitude of body shapes, so every woman can celebrate her natural beauty and feel sexy in a gorgeous dress.”

Dita’s clothing line is no surprise to those that follow her on Twitter. Back in 2010, the actress tweeted the picture above and said, “It’s going to be quite a task to sew all these labels into my clothes!!”

There’s been no word yet as to when Dita Von Teese Muse will head to the United States as negotiations are still occurring. But the new designer already has her eyes set on her next project. “I am just dying to do a men’s fragrance,” Dita told Women’s Wear Daily. “It’s an idea that came to me recently. I love the idea of advising men on what they should wear and how to wear it, because I think we often encounter men (even more than women) wearing the wrong fragrance—strong, overpowering stuff that women don’t like.”

Ladies, would you wear Dita Von Teese Muse and buy Dita’s cologne for your fella—considering she probably liked the way Marilyn Manson smelled?
