People have been putting on age on beauty for many years now and it does not seem to matter what industry you work in, once you hit a certain age, people look at you in a different way and you are not seen as beautiful as you once were. With that said, there are so many older women these days, showing that age is just a number and rivalling the looks of the women half their age.
When you look at the beautiful Dita Von Teese, it is hard to believe that she is now 43 years old, as she could easily pass for still being in her 20s. Dita has been working in Burlesque for many years now and is still going strong, and why not when she looks this great. However there are some people who have been questioning how much longer she can go for, which the stunning star has not taken too kindly to.
Von Teese explained, "Being ageist about any form of entertainment is insensitive. People always ask me, 'but what about when you don't look good', or 'when you're old?'. Well, the point of my show is that the best performers in it are not the youngest, prettiest, most perfect bodies – that's not what makes a great show. We should be celebrating women in all stages of life and all stages of beauty."
We are with you on this one Dita. You look absolutely stunning and we think you should continue on in Burlesque for as long as you feel comfortable doing it and for as long as your body will let you. Keep up the good work!
