Here is the transcript of Temptalia’s interview with Dita Von Teese.

I want to give a huge thank you to Heather at MAC for allowing Temptalia to have the opportunity of not just meeting, but interviewing Dita Von Teese! Girl, you know I love you!

INTERVIEW

Christine: I run a beauty blog, so basically I’m going to ask you some beauty questions.

Dita: Okay, okay.

Christine: I want to know how do you keep your skin so perfect?

Dita: Well, I use sunscreen religiously. But not in a psychotic manner! I know there were a lot of tabloid stories going around about me traveling with sunscreen curtains and everything. All this crazy, like, that I have a diet to keep my skin white. None of that’s true – it’s basic sunscreen, it’s what everybody should do, even if they don’t want to be as pale as me. It’s important to use sunscreen, so that’s my number one. Getting my beauty sleep is my number two, sleep makes a big difference in how my skin looks.

Christine: I noticed you’re wearing very, very high heels. How do you survive heels that high? What’s your secret?

Dita: My secret is staying in good shape. I think that I’m always, I work out a lot, and it’s not really just so my body looks a certain way. I feel stronger even walking in heels. I just feel more powerful and strong when I’m in good shape, and that’s one thing, and buying good quality shoes helps you support you.

DITA VON TEESE & TEMPTALIA.COM

(Why am I hunching?! Dita looks great!!)

Thanks to MAC Cosmetics, Temptalia went backstage at Macy’s Passport 2007 (San Francisco) to interview the very sultry Dita Von Teese, international queen of burlesque. Check out this unedited 15-minute interview with this gorgeous Viva Glam spokesperson!

Dita Von Teese is an absolute doll; she’s terribly nice, and there are these quirks and mannerisms that remind you she’s human, friendly, and so down to earth. It is definitely a great way to put a first-timer (myself) at ease straight away in the interviewing process. She laughs often, and it’s easy to see she enjoys everything she does – her life is what she wants it to be. It is impossible not to admire someone with this kind of attitude in life, plus, she’s accomplished it.

We can’t wait to see more of Miss Teese in the future!

P.S. – This is my first interview, so excuse my “ums” on occasion. The transcript is available here.
