Dita Von Teese talks ageism for InStyle



  • Von Teese is a professional burlesque dancer and model

  • Feels worried about getting older and still performing at 44 but loves the work and will continue to do it

  • Is inspired by women her age and older like J. Lo and Madonna

  • "Which is why when people make ageist remarks or ask age-related questions, I find it so shortsighted. What’s the alternative? Die young?"

  • "I hate it when people say, “You look good for your age.” It should be, “You look good.” Period. Getting older is a good thing."
