Dita von Teese and Mr. Pearl at les Deux Abeilles

Dear Shaded Viewers,

I could not resist posting this, my earlier one was cropped a bit strange. How beautiful is Dita?  I love how the last image in Cameron Silver's Decades: A Century of Fashion, he states: " Dita Von Teese is the personification of what I always wanted Decades could be: thoroughly rooted in the present with a sophisticated awareness of-and a new take on- the past."
