has revealed what she thinks makes a good "femme fatale".
The burlesque star, who is currently visiting Australia to launch her new Von Folies lingerie line
, revealed the secrets behind her successful style at her fashion show in Melbourne.
Demanding that photographers put down their cameras while she spoke, Von Teese told the Herald Sun
: "A femme fatale is always chic, a little wicked, edgy and dark, and has her own dress code she sticks to."
She also said that she had banned all her models from getting spray tans, saying: "I really wanted natural skin tones and not the fake orange glow. I want the real thing." > Dita Von Teese: 'I have lots of insecurities'> Dita Von Teese: 'I don't really care if everyone doesn't like what I do'
Von Teese also said that she wanted her models to have a "bit of a jiggle".
Earlier this week, the star said that she had turned down some models
at the auditions for her fashion show because they were too skinny.
"Of course I want to show all different types and more voluptuous girls," she said. "It's important to me [that] we show curvaceous women and fuller-figured girls... lingerie looks terrific on girls with shape."
