Dita Von Teese to Ditch Her Glamorous Look?

Dita Ditches Her Glam Look; "Too Much Work," She Says

The name Dita Von Teese is synonymous with glamour — but not for much longer. After performing in Las Vegas last night, the burlesque superstar announced that she's "totally over" retro style.

"Sure, the pinup look is what made me famous," she said. "But do you know how much work it is to look like that? Consider all of the hair styling, manicures, lipstick, and other grooming I've been doing all these years. I'm tired. From here on out, I'll be performing in fleece sweatpants, Crocs, and Chapstick.

"I also want to get a spray tan," she added.

To prove her point, Dita invited reporters to sniff her wrists. "No more Dior," she said. "It's patchouli oil from now on!" She plans to retain her designer wardrobe for the time being, but her makeup collection has already been donated to the Burlesque Hall of Fame. (Click here to find out when the exhibit will open.) What do you think of this style shift?

I knew as soon as I read about the patchouli that this had to be a joke. No way would she ditch Dior for patchouli.

Okay, so I know this is an April Fool's and all, but I actually kind of wish she'd tone it down sometimes. She's so pretty without the make-up, and sometimes lately it looks like it ages her.

Dammit don't play with my emotions like they're a f*ckin rag doll! This was almost as bad as the fake In n Out Burger in NYC.

I am sure she's used to it. I have to admit I've done the make-up since I'm an MUA, and she's a champ for putting that much effort into her look. I've read she doesn't do it every day though. I couldn't imagine that myself.... Make-up is one thing, but all the waxing/hair color/style is hard work.

Thank goodness that was an April Fool's joke. I was about to freak out at the mention of her in crocs and a spray tan except just today she was tweeting about lipstick so I knew it couldn't be true.

I've seen a picture of her without her full stage hair/makeup, and she's beautiful without it. But in my mind, Dita will always be synonymous with full-on, gorgeous glamour.

I could see her growing out of it little by little, but I think it's hard to change your style completely like that after so many years. That's got to be part of her identity now.
