The Ultimate Guide to Eccentric Glamour

The Ultimate Guide to Eccentric Glamour
By Dita Von Teese
With Rose Apodaca

On-Sale December 1, 2015

For international style icon and “burlesque superheroine” (Vanity Fair) Dita Von Teese, the transformative powers of makeup, hairspray, perfume and even a good bubble bath are instrumental in creating one’s individual glamour and making an indelible beauty mark in this world. Now, for the first time in her Technicolor career, Dita divulges a lifetime of beauty insight—which she continues to practice daily and without a glam squad.

There is great empowerment in being able to do it yourself, encourages Dita. She is proof. From worldwide stages to fashion runways, magazine covers to online videos, Dita has pulled off more strokes of red lipstick, bursts of hair spray, boxes of blue-black hair dye and pats of powder in a month than a drag queen could dream of in a lifetime. Whether she’s dazzling audiences while swirling in a towering martini glass in Swarovski-covered pasties, or sparking camera flashes on the red carpet, one reality is constant: for this self-styled star, beauty is an art. It’s what keeps her on international best-dressed lists and on high-profile fashion show rosters, and it is lavishly demonstrated in this 400-page illustration and photography-filled coffee table book.

In Your Beauty Mark: The Ultimate Guide to Eccentric Glamour (Dey Street Books; December 1, 2015; $45.00), Dita and collaborator Rose Apodaca take you through every step of Dita’s glamour arsenal, from sound nutrition and exercise guidance, skincare and scent insight, as well as accessible techniques for creating bombshell hairstyles and makeup looks. There is the authoritative advice of her confidantes—masters in makeup, hair, medicine, and exercise, as well as some of the world’s most eccentric beauties. This inspiring resource shares the skills, history, and lessons you need to enhance your individual gifts and realize your own beauty mark, with original illustrations by Adele Mildred and instructive step-by-steps, along with hundreds of glamour portraits by more than 80 acclaimed photographers, such as Ellen Von Unwerth, Peter Lindbergh, Ruven Afanador, Paola Kudacki, Ali Mahdavi and Albert Sanchez.

As Dita says, “This book is for those who enjoy breaking the beauty rules and changing them, and I hope it inspires them to not be ashamed to say they like something the way they like it.” Look beyond the mainstream perceptions of beauty, she urges, and celebrate eccentricity and individuality. That is making your beauty mark.

About the Authors:

Dita Von Teese is the brightest star in burlesque since Gypsy Rose Lee and an influential tastemaker celebrated internationally. As style icon and muse to artists, designers and photographers, she has appeared on magazine covers and European runways for Jean Paul Gaultier, Moschino and Giambattista Valli, and is the performer of choice for Marc Jacobs, Christian Louboutin and Louis Vuitton. Her DIY beauty ethos and entrepreneurial ventures—designing award-winning perfumes, lingerie, gloves, and clothes, and as directing producer on her touring stage extravaganzas—have established her as a role model to women. She is the author of the global bestseller Burlesque and the Art of the Teese/Fetish and the Art of the Teese and Dita: Stripteese. Dita and her illustrious feline Aleister live just under the gaze of the star-viewing Griffith Observatory.
