Burlesque dancer turned fashion fixture Dita Von Teese has added a linerie line for HSN to her list of mass seduction. The line of affordable lingerie and fragrances was inspired by her own extensive vintage collection and features eyelash lace, velvet ribbon, and the necessary dose of fishnet. It will launch on HSN next week.
We asked DVT what she'd be doing if not shimmying her assets for a living. "I would probably be a stylist of some kind because that's really what I do," she told us. "I'm a do-it-yourself kind of girl, I don't have a stylist, I am my own glam squad." So naturally, we asked her to play stylist to some of the most recognized street style stars, matching her lingerie to their unique personal steez. Head after the jump to see what kind of unders she envisions on the Man Repeller, Susie Bubble, Anna Dello Russo, and more.

"I would probably say she might like the leopard print lingerie or the exotic cat print lingerie because it seems like she likes to mix it up."
"My lingerie is decidedly not man-repellant, it's a man-attracter, but I think she might have a secret under there and might like to wear a little bit of black lace."
"Well, if she's French, she knows a thing or two about wearing beautiful lingerie, so I would guess she likes something really sophisticated. Maybe something like this blue and black set, I bet she would love."
"I think Grace would like my leopard print lingerie. Redheads look great in leopard."
Anna Dello Russo
"I could definitely see her in any of my lingerie. I know she would like it all!"
