Marilyn & Dita: Mourning The Loss of Fashion's Fiercest Couple
When the end of Dita Von Teese & Marilyn Manson’s marriage was confirmed today, those of us obsessed with fashion sobbed, “oh no!” Irreconcilable differences aside, no couple has worked the red carpet with more flair than these two the past few years. Always decked out in perfectly coordinated couture attire — just look them here in Technicolor glory at a Marc Jacobs’ store opening in Los Angeles! — they made Ashton and Demi seem like frumps in comparison. Something about her 1940’s Marlene Dietrich-glamour complimented his dandy Goth getups just perfectly. (On their wedding day, Dita wore a purple Vivienne Westwood gown, while Manson opted for a John Galliano frock coat). How many couples wear matching red lipstick? But, alas, style is not everything and fashion cannot replace happiness. We can’t help but wonder who will take over their extreme fashion throne. Perhaps Christina Aguilera and hubbie Jordan Bratman?
