The saturated pop-art colors and kitschy decor of California’s Madonna Inn provide a deliciously compatible setting for burlesque icon Dita Von Teese in this new photo collaboration with the online designer platform WhoYouAre.
It’s also a great way for the busy fashion icon to show off the bright new color choices in her eponymous retro lingerie label.
The photoshoot looks like it was thrown together by a hyperactive stylist and production designer, but in fact it’s set in the quirky 1950s-themed rooms of the Madonna Inn, an utterly unique landmark resort in California’s wine country.
It was shot by nouveau modernist photographer Vijat Mohindra, with the lingerie fashions from Dita’s own line as well as her stockings collection for Secrets In Lace, and some theatrical headwear from British milliner Victoria Grant and jeweler Stephen Webster.
In a brief intro to the series, Dita calls herself a “glamour evangelist,” adding: “I believe in the power of glamour to transform and inspire.”
This photoshoot marks the beginning of a very busy fall season for the queen of burlesque, whose eagerly awaited book Your Beauty Mark hits the shelves in December.
