Lifestyle Mirror, the internet magazine for the rich and marginally famous, just updated their homepage with a spread on burlesque dancer turned fashion darling Dita von Teese. It's titled "Who Is Dita von Teese" and purports to answer the question, "how the world's most famous burlesque performer became a major role model for women everywhere."
While the profile does not exactly answer that questionable claim, here are some things we did learn: Her waist is 16 inches when corseted, she's designing a trench coat, and there is a DVT beauty book in the works. Head to Lifestyle Mirror to read the whole thing and/or ogle that gravity-defying waist some more.
