Tonight's episode was extra glam because I was able to take you into the phenomenal closet of Dita von Teese. Dita is the ultimate Decades woman. Quite frankly, she is the ultimate woman... period! She is glamour 24-7 and understands there is no excuse to not be your very best. I have known Dita for a decade; and in a world where casual has turned into schlep, she never ceases to inspire me with her impeccable elegance.
When Decades first opened in 1997, I sent a mailing out with the headline "GET A LOOK" because I wanted the store to be a resource for individuals to make their fashion mark. Dita has made her mark in fashion (and in many other categories, too). I love that 16 years since opening our fabled doors, Decades is still a resource to "GET A LOOK," and if Dita represents my ultimate muse, I do hope her aspirational chic fairy dust just might rub off on every viewer tonight. OK, I am not suggesting you need to be as coiffed for your Pilates session as Dita always is, but don't be afraid to put a little glamour into your everyday life.
I firmly believe you should live your life as if you are walking on a red carpet. It doesn't mean you need to be wearing a corseted gown or tail tux, just have a little extra confidence and zip in your step everyday because your internal diva/divo will draw people to you. You may not end up walking the runway of a Gaultier Couture show as Dita has famously done, but when you "GET A LOOK" people will remember you.
Glamour doesn't wear a watch. In a world where everything is documented via Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, etc., you never know when you need to be ready for your close-up. Smile -- you're on candid Cameron camera.
Life is a reality show. Dita von Teese makes real into the stuff of fantasies.
The idea of glamour being sold for an everyday use, to be ready for "your close up" is actually a correct rule for the general population. The focus of this statement isn't glamour as it is perceived. The statement is more about fertility and what we are attracted to genetically. Makeup, extensions, corsets, are the basic structure of "glamour". It is what we use to enhance the appearance of fertility and make us more likely to find a mate. Win win. Get ready for your "close up" xx Dakota Heman p.s. Cameron is awesome.
Thanks, Cameron, for taking us into Dita's world! Your relationship with her absolutely shone, and I think we're starting to see why you've been so successful! You're a smart businessman, yet personal and cuasual enough to make your clients feel at ease!
"Internal Diva..." I love that you're preaching this, as well. What a great message to send to out. Constantly impressed by you, sir.
Once again an amazing episode!!! Love Jean Paul Gaultier, a genius who deserves so much more credit than he receives. Decades showed him the love and admiration that he truly deserves. I loved Billy in his priest outfit he definitely used your motto of Get the look!! Dita ahhhh there are no words the 1955 Dior 3 piece was to die for.
