Dita Von Teese's intimidating eyewear

Dita Von Teese has shared more details about her upcoming eyewear range with DITA Inc.
The burlesque beauty is set to launch a range of eyewear with DITA Inc., which will include ten unique spectacles. Describing a pair of shades called Femme Totale, Dita shared her inspiration behind the design.
"I love distinctive, powerful - dare I admit - ‘intimidating’ sunglasses. These frames will let them know that you’re a feminine force to be reckoned with!" she mused to WWD. "I’ll be wearing these poolside with a black maillot de bain, sky-high heels and maybe some diamonds... Sunglasses are the quick way to achieve glamour. Day-to-day, I usually wear little more than a swipe of red lipstick and a pair of shades.”
Another pair called Huntress also has a strong meaning for Dita. Again, she shared the prime opportunity to wear them.
"These new-style cat-eye shades were imagined for a woman who knows what she wants. I imagined wearing these sitting outdoors at a Parisian cafe and quietly surveying the scene for possible love interests," she smiled.
There is also Paramour - a more sophisticated option.
“These make me think of sexy shades that a glamorous French woman might wear to meet her lover for a secret afternoon rendezvous,” Dita added.
Dita Von Teese Eyewear will first debut in selected department stores in Italy, Spain and France, with prices ranging from $235 to $285. The star has had the help of her close friend John Juniper, who co-founded DITA Inc. and named it after her.
He previously gushed about Dita and how she is the perfect person for this venture.
“The inspiration behind the Dita Von Teese collection was to create elegant feminine styles with a classic flare that women could wear on any occasion. Dita Von Teese personifies the quintessential woman with a sartorial grace that is unique,” John explained.
