Dita Von Teese is an international icon in the burlesque and fashion world, known for her forties style, retro quirk and milky white complexion.  “Opium Den” is her lovechild, and the final act in her infamous performance. It’s truly a spectacle – the stage is covered in red, paper Chinese lanterns, a bed of pillows, pipe smoke and Dita intimately dressed in a robe by Catherine D’Lish and Michael Schmidt (encrusted with more than 70 lbs of Swarovski crystals!).

LA-based celebrity photographer Scott Nathan photographed Dita at Pier 59 Studios in Santa Monica, California. Dita was the first celebrity he shot on a tour with his friend after college, and many years later, she still continues to be one of the celebrities that he collaborates with.

Scott explains the shoot:

“Spotlight was a broncolor Pulso Spot. The dragon came via a drawing from Dita’s interior designer Stacia Dunnam . I had a 43mm glass gobo custom laser etched, then filled with chrome to achieve the positive effect. Various gridded hard light sources were used around the dress for specularity and shadows. Key light on her face was a broncolor white gridded Softlight Reflector. Hair light was an overhead snoot made with cinefoil & green gel. Fill light was a broncolor Para 220FB with ring flash. Chief Lighting Technician: Frank Terry.  Makeup by GREGORY ARLT Beauty. Shot with Hasselblad’s H4D-60 with 80mm Lens. “
