Dita wants her jewellery to go to good homes

Dita Von Teese can't stop herself from buying vintage jewellery.

The burlesque star is known for her porcelain skin, jet-black locks and retro style, which she shows off at various fashion events.

In her spare time Dita loves to browse flea markets to add to her vintage trinket collection. However, with the assortment ever growing, the 42-year-old has decided to sell off some pieces via the app Depop. She simply takes a photo of the jewellery and the picture goes up online for users to browse.

“I love collecting. I can’t help it. Every time I see something I feel like I need to buy it,” she laughed to WWD. “So I have too many things and I thought after all those years I should let things go to someone who would appreciate it.”

Last week Dita put her style in the spotlight at the presentation of Pasquale Bruni's latest jewellery collection, Giardini Segreti. Meaning Secret Gardens in English, the event took place at Atellani Villa in Milan and was surrounded by a Leonardo da Vinci vineyard and courtyard.

Dita wore a gorgeous royal blue Alice Temperley dress which clung at her enviable hourglass figure. To accessorise she wore matching coloured Christian Louboutin shoes and held a gorgeous Swarovski clutch bag.

“I have worn a lot of Pasquale Bruni’s jewellery back in Los Angeles, but this is the first time that I have actually met the family,” she said at the bash.

Dita is such a fan of Christian Louboutin that she teamed up with the label last year on a lingerie line. She's an expert in creating underwear, having her own range Von Follies by Dita Von Teese under her belt along with ventures such a pregnancy line with Destination Maternity.
