Dita Von Teese goes drag-king in a formal tuxedo for Halloween: amazing?

These are photos from Bette Midler’s annual Halloween NYC party, which she throws as a benefit for the New York Restoration Project (NYRP), which helps fund city gardens and community development and such. Bette’s been working with the NYRP for years and decades. This year, I think Dita Von Teese might have been the “hostess” or host or something. Look at Dita! Usually for Halloween, Dita dresses up like a “real girl” – as in, she’ll wear jeans and a blonde wig instead of her usual, everyday pin-up costume. I like Dita in a formal tux – she pulls it off admirably. I would look like a total heifer in this.

Here’s Debra Messing as… Marie Antoinette…? I like this kind of costume – it feels like she put some thought into it and really tried to create a whole “look”.

And here are Bette and Debbie Harry. Bette looks good, but I think Debbie is… um… too old to be dressing like this for Halloween.

    The ghost of Coco Chanel!! Oh my god that’s an awesome idea.

  2. Eve says:

    Looks like Evan Rachel Wood in the first picture.

    She might be “too old” to dress up like that but I still LOVE Debbie Harry and I think she looks amazing for her age.

    Seeing the awesomeness of the strong, talented ladies featured in this post makes me die a little inside, especially knowing another Kardashian or Swifty post is likely looming on the horizon.

    Marlene Dietrich would be envious! ;)

      OMG, Dita makes my queer heart explode! It´s definitly a reference to Marlene in “Marocco” – the movie that featured the first female-to-female kiss on screen ♥

      But I think rather than getting envious Marlene would made out with Dita. She was a wild one!

    Bette for the WIN!!! Love the creative costumes that aren’t trampy

    Well she looks like she always does.
    But I am disappointed I was waiting to see her with the blonde wig, jeans and snearkers.

  7. Sweet Dee says:

    I wish I understood the appeal of Dita, though I do see the comparison to ERW. I love Evan! Maybe that will help.

    Debbie Harry is just awesome. Period. And if I still had a body like that at nearly 70 I would show it off all the time.

    So much love for Bette Midler <3

    Debbie has amazing legs…I think that Kelsey Grammer is mean to have had his wife dress up as his ex-wife…it makes him appear totally obsessed.

    Dita looks AMAZING – flawless. Only she could pull that off perfectly. LOVE Bette’s costume – especially the saggy pantyhose! Good stuff.

    Ditta is absolutely DIVINE!

  13. keats says:

    Dude, whatever. Debbie Harry looks great.

  14. bigt says:

    Think Debbie looks Amazing. She looks sooo much better then a Kartrashian or Kelly O on any day of the week, and those useless famewhores are half her age. Like Bette’s costume too.

  15. Just Me says:

    Dita looks amazing as ever. I am so envious of her skin! Love Bette as Coco & Debra as Marie Antoinette.

  16. Christian says:

    Lifetime pass for Debbie Harry. She’s awesome!

  17. j.eyre says:

    They all look great – I would have loved to have been at this party.

  18. Camille (TheOriginal) says:

    Dita looks fabulous. Love it. Very classy.

    Bette looks great too, I’m loving the CC’s ghost idea.

  19. teenydj says:

    Anyone else appreciate the irony of Debra Messing’s costume involving covering her face in white powder? Seems convenient if those blinds are true…

    Dita looks good! This is an homage to Marlene Deitrich, I’m sure! I LOve it!
