Dita Von Teese Ballet Shoes

If anyone is going to wear Christian Louboutin ballet slippers, it’s Dita Von Teese. And the lucky lady is doing just that: she Tweeted a picture of her custom red-soled pointe shoes on Wednesday, making us trés jealous.

“My custom made @LouboutinWorld ballet shoes have arrived…” the burlesque star wrote. “Flashing that red sole, ballet style….#stripstriphooray…”

Dita von Teese: Being Beautiful Takes Practice

Dec/06/2011 at 04:30 PM ET

Dita von Teese Shows Off Her Beauty Routine

A quick review of the past decade in the life of Dita von Teese and two things become abundantly clear: the woman never ages, and she always looks perfect.

There’s good reason for that: Von Teese’s trademark look — alabaster skin, doe eyes and pin-up curls — is the result of years of perfecting the routine. “Practice is everything when it comes to beauty,” she tells Stylist.co.uk readers. “If I don’t do my eyeliner for a week or so, I’m not so good at it.”

To that end, the burlesque star, who always does her own hair and makeup, relies on an arsenal of products including Diorific lipstick, M.A.C rougemarie nail polish and hot rollers for a photo finish.

And just because she recycles her red carpet looks doesn’t mean the star gets ready in a hurry. “One of the things that I do to have a glamorous day is take a bit of time to put on makeup and choose clothes that I like to wear,” she says, emphasizing the importance of an area designated to primping. “[Always] have a good vanity place to do your makeup and a place with good lighting — natural light is the best.”

Double Take: Dita Von Teese Wears the Same Dress Twice

Oh yes she did! The always pin-up-perfect Dita Von Teese dared to double dip her famous curves in the same Jean Paul Gaultier gown at two events just days apart. And the burlesque diva, who first donned the haute couture creation last Wednesday night to fête the designer himself at the opening of The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk exhibit at the Dallas Museum of Art, doesn’t care.

“I don’t agree that you can only wear things once,” she told InStyle.com while working what she called her “favorite dress in the world” again over the weekend at the MoCA gala in Los Angeles. “I think when you have something you really love, there should be nothing that stops you from enjoying it.”

A fearless fashionista, Von Teese is also financially savvy. “When a dress costs as much as a Mercedes, you want to wear it more than once,” she joked. Makes (fashion) sense to us! Tell us: What are your rules on rewearing dresses?
