Dita Von Teese in awe of Kruger

Dita Von Teese has hailed Diane Kruger as her fashion heroine as she "doesn't have a stylist".

The Burlesque entertainer counts the actress as a friend and admires her individual style.

Dita also praised British women for their dress sense and, in particular, their ability to look stylish in the cold weather.

"[Diane] is one of the only high-profile names I know who, like me, doesn't have a stylist," Dita explained to British Vogue's website.

"[I respect how British women dress in the cold] you do well in the winter and are very good at picking great coats. In LA, no one really thinks about the importance of a great coat - they can't be bothered. It's always better when people take their time with these things."

Dita continued to discuss her debut dress collection which is made up of feminine and retro inspired creations. The classic beauty explained how she firmly believes old fashioned glamour is a far more flattering look to channel than the barely there style preferred by today's youth.

"That look never worked for me," Dita admitted. "Any time I feel like being lazy, I think: 'The day I don't dress up, that's when I'll run into my ex-boyfriend - or worse, his new girlfriend.’ I feel better about myself when I look my best. I always find the time to put on my powder and do my chignon."

Dita revealed how she caught out an unnamed fashion designer while she was researching her line of clothing. She was given the confidence to pursue her debut dress line after witnessing the way the anonymous designer worked.

"I saw a very famous designer, who shall remain unnamed, in a vintage boutique in LA," Dita finished. "He was there with his whole team and they were taking pictures for pieces to inspire his next collection. I just thought to myself: 'There's no reason why I couldn't do that.' Vintage stores are where I buy all my clothes - I love the thrill of the hunt."
