Dita Von Teese always wears retro lingerie - even when she is just relaxing at home.
The burlesque dancer, the wife of rocker Marilyn Manson, is famous for her vintage style and always strips on stage wearing old fashioned corsets and underwear.
Dita insists she always wears extravagant undergarments because that is when she feels most comfortable.
She said: "I feel more comfortable in a Fifties slip with a couple of holes in it and a stain on the front than in a pair of sweatpants with 'University of Whatever' on them."
Although she is happy with her individual style, Dita insists most Americans don't get her look.
She added: "I've got a collection of worst-dressed lists from magazines that I'm on and they're all in the US, and a bunch of the times I've been on the best-dressed lists and they're all from Europe."
