When we heard the news this morning that Dita Von Teese is launching her own lipstick with MAC, we admit, we were a little surprised that she hadn't collaborated with the brand already—after all, that trademark crimson hue is a key element in her pin up–chic aesthetic, and she previously appeared in MAC's Viva Glam VI campaigns. Next month, your dreams of working the bombshell's signature look will be closer within reach thanks to the launch of her appropriately named Von Teese lipstick, which is probably the sexiest shade of red we've ever seen.
"I've always loved MAC and we've remained close after working together almost 10 years ago for the MAC Viva Glam campaign. MAC Cosmetics celebrates individuality and supports people who dare to be different," Von Teese says in a statement. "I'm grateful to have had the opportunity to create my signature red lipstick. My MAC Von Teese shade evokes glamour and confidence." Not unlike the star herself, of course.
Von Teese's bold red lipstick coincides with the launch of her new book, Your Beauty Mark: The Ultimate Guide to Eccentric Glamour ($25; amazon.com), which outlines every item in her glamour arsenal, as well as her entire primping routine—two places where that certain shade of red plays a large role. "Dita epitomizes femininity, beauty, and sexuality," adds James Gager, MAC Senior VP and Group Creative Director. "She is the perfect combination of glamour and femme fatale." Can we get an amen?
