Little girl's all grown up

Happy 35th birthday, lovely Dita von Teese.

You inspire in all of us - the meek, the uptight, the humorless and the puerile - a desire to be milky white, sexually powerful, uninhibited seductresses like yourself.


And apparently, you're also using your feminine wiles to spread your love for neutering! While championing that cause may incur the wrath of my wittle Monte-ster, you definitely score points with me, in part because I fundamentally agree with the practice but largely because I fundamentally agree with the art direction in that ad campaign.

Rrrrrrowrrr.

The lady is hot, but HOLY GOD that first picture is going to haunt me in my sleep. In a bad way, I mean.

You are such a closet dyke.

*Or* you're trying very desperately to give the impression that you'd be "into it" if asked.

Either way, it's kinda sad. Just like your awful boy cut.

I always find other people's comments such a fascinating insight into their own psyches.

F**k off. Seriously.

Get down to B&N or Border's and check out her pictures in this month's Aussie version of Men's Style.

OMG.

Seriously.

And anonymous, my girlfriend put me onto the PETA ads, and if that makes her a closet dyke then just let me take pictures and I'll be happy forever.

Seriously. There are worse things.

Oh jeez, anon 2:07, whoever you are, you're a real turd on the cake, aren't you? Just because Jo appreciates and fawns over a woman's beauty in no way makes her a closet lesbian. And even she could be "into it," what's the problem with that?

Dita is divine and so's our girl, Jo. Lay off.

So I've posted a couple of critical comments in the past, which to my mind were misunderstood by other commenters who reacted as if I were a psycho (which is no fun). And there's sometimes a policing of comments on here by other commenters which makes sense to the friends of Johanna who read this blog, but which at times comes off as really defensive to those of us who visit the blog for entertainment and fashion indulgence.

But criticism is one thing and insults are another. I, for one, love that Johanna took a risk with her hair and IMO has the interesting facial features to pull it off. We haven't seen a photo spread of it yet (please post one!) but I imagine she rocks it.

If ever you have a special evening out that requires dressing to the nines, I highly recommend finger waves as a short hair do. They look awesome, dressy, glamorous and so retro.

Also I'm not quite sure how it would be possible to come aross as both a closet dyke AND as someone who wants everyone to know she'd be into it. Anonymous's reasoning skills are "kinda sad. "

the funny thing about your post is that dita comes off as humorless and uptight to me, but i love her look, minus the cheesy tit job and acrylic nails. also, i love corsets, but i hate them when they're so tight they're disfiguring. the proportions just don't look right. you know her organs are suffering.

to anonymous poster #2, a dyke haircut does not a dyke make. this girl is SO obviously not gay. as a matter of fact, i think 90% of the women who act like they are into other women are not gay, they just do it coz they know guys think it's hot, which is so hetero, real dykes don't give a rat's ass what guys think is hot not that i'm saying johanna is like that, i'm just talking generally. i think johanna is just appreciating how other women are hot.. and from a fashion/beauty perspective, too.

dita would be much hotter if she had a personality

how does dvt get/stay that white? i have to know her secret. i'm about as fair as a person could be but it's nigh on impossible to avoid sun freckles/tans/redness. she must never go out and wear a turtleneck and hat when she does. do you know of a website that has info of her beauty secrets. i've seen her talk, but never give details of how she achieves her look (how the fuck do you spell achieve? i can't spell!)

It's sad to see someone who still thinks calling someone gay is an insult.

i love dita and wish my skin looked like her's. i'm quite pale and gave up the sun years ago (i'd rather be white than pink, which is all the sun ever did for me), but i can never quite achieve the porcelain look of her skin. she's gorgeous.

exactly! she must use hydroquinine/hydroquinone??? (i told you i couldn't spell) all over her body.

that dress Dita's wearing in the second picture is too cute! what label is it from, all-knowing Johanna?

She's so fascinating. She has such an amazing look but her voice is so normal, and I guess for some reason it makes her seem more human, whereas Monica Bellucci, I think she's an alien, her looks & her voice, no human from the planet earth could be that utterly sexy!
