Happy birthday, Dita Von Teese! The burlesque queen turns 44 and we have a feeling she'll be dolled up to celebrate her special day.

She performs, heads up a lingerie brand, creates perfumes and cosmetics, and counts legendary shoe designer Christian Louboutin among her BFFs—they've even collaborated on a lingerie capsule collection! Her sexy style inspires women to slow down and appreciate what she calls the "power of lingerie."

Von Teese threw us a curveball two years ago when she divulged she'd be "glamping" to ring in her 42nd birthday. We'll be watching the pinup star's Instagram to see if she decides to bond with Mother Nature once again for the double digit milestone.

In the meantime, enjoy more fun snaps of the birthday girl with her partner-in-crime kitty, Aleister Von Teese—who, naturally, has his own Instagram feed:
