Dita Von Teese Net Worth
Dita Von Teese net worth: Dita Von Teese is an American burlesque dancer, pin-up model, costume designer, entrepreneur and actress who has a net worth of $16 million. She is arguably the most famous modern burlesque performer and is referred to today as the Queen of Burlesque.
Dita Von Teese was born Heather Renee Sweet in West Branch, Michigan, on September 28, 1972. She was classically trained as a ballet dancer at an early age, performing solos at 13 for her company. At 15 she took a job at a lingerie store. It was here that she developed a passion for lingerie, stockings, corsets and other intimate items.
At 19 Heather began performing as a burlesque dancer, combining her ballet skills and lingerie. She added a new sense of elegance and sophistication to the art form. She also stood out thanks to her ornate sets and dazzling haute-couture costumes decorated with hundreds of thousands of Swarovski crystals. In 1992 she came up with another way to monetize her work, i.e., by selling her photos on the net through her website, which was one of the pioneers among adult sites.
She took the name "Dita" as a tribute to actress Dita Parlo. When she landed on the cover of Playboy in 2002 she decided to adopt the last name "Von Treese" after seeing it randomly in a phone book. It was subsequently misspelled as "Von Teese", and that stuck. She would go on to make dozens of appearances in Playboy and other magazines.
Today Dita presides over a mini-empire that includes her own fragrance line, lingerie collection, a line of signature cocktails and several best-selling books.
She has been an active advocate in the fight against HIV and AIDS.
Dita also made headlines for her marriage with Marilyn Manson. They began dating in 2001 and were married 2005 to 2006.
