Born Heather Sweet in West Branch, Mich., Dita said she grew up fascinated by the Golden Age of Cinema, pin-up imagery, and vintage lingerie, and so transformed herself into a glamour girl. Performing burlesque since 1992, she is renowned for ornate sets and haute-couture costumes adorned with thousands of Swarovski crystals. She is working on her third book; her first was “Burlesque and the Art of the Teese,” the second, “Dita Stripteese,” a box set of three, retro-styled flip-books shot by Sheryl Nields. An advocate in the fight against HIV and AIDS, Dita was a MAC Viva Glam Spokesperson from 2006-2008 and in 2009, she participated in the H&M/Fashion Against Aids campaign. Photo Danielle Bedics
