dita von teese perfume london launch may12.jpg

How glam can one dame get? After jetting into London just a couple of days ago, Dita von Teese got straight to work launching her new self-titled fragrance yesterday. And despite the gloomy weather, Dita brought with her not one but two ultra glamorous frocks both in the exact same design, only in different colours!

For her daytime launch at Liberty, the burlesque beauty gussied up in a forest green plunging Grecian gown designed by Herve L. Leroux. With a bandage bodice to show off that wasp waist, the floor-length number looked incredible on Dita. She teamed her look with an old Hollywood-esque side curled 'do, pink cheeks, and a smattering of her signature ruby red lipstick. Find out how to recreate this look yourself here.

It appears she is such a huge fan of the gown by Leroux, she wore the same design only in a wet-look gold shade for the evening event. With her hair and make-up remaining in-tact, Dita once again stepped out in another version of the very low-cut dress to attend a private dinner thrown in her honour.

As for how she came up with her own scent, Dita says: "I was walking down the street in Paris with my boyfriend, who I'd been dating for two weeks, when he asked me what perfume I wear. When I told him the name of the fragrance he kind of hesitated and revealed that this was also his mother's perfume... This really got me, because I really didn't want him to associate my smell with his mother, but on the other hand this perfume was perfect and iconic for me, it fit me perfectly and it was mysterious and unknown to everyone I met until that day."

"I started hunting for other fragrances that could replace it and there were some which I really liked, but none of them felt like the real me and fit me. So, I decided to create my own scent and this was a dream come true."
