Many fans were surprised when Dita Von Teese filed for divorce from Marilyn Manson on December 29, 2006, citing “irreconcilable differences”. She married the American singer on November 28, 2005, after dating for about four years.

The year-long marriage reportedly ended after he cheated on her with the then 19-year-old “Westwood” starlet Evan Rachel Wood, whom the tabloids dubbed a homewrecker.

“Most teenagers are searching for identity, and I was thrown into a situation where I was supposed to have that already figured out,” Evan Rachel Wood told Rolling Stone.

“Then you’re demonized for figuring it out and getting messy. People would call me a whore when I walked down the street, and you can’t not be hurt by that.”

“I met somebody that promised freedom and expression and no judgments,” the bisexual actress told the magazine.

“And I was craving danger and excitement. I looked at my mother one day and said, ‘Mom, I’m gonna get on this tour bus for eight months and see the world and have a crazy journey and find myself, and if people aren’t OK with that, I’m sorry, but I can’t live my life for other people.'”

“It was difficult, because I was trying to get him help for his problems, and eventually I realized that he didn’t want help. I wasn’t supportive about his partying or his relationship with another girl, and as much as I loved him I wasn’t going to be part of that,” Dita told The Daily Telegraph in 2007 about her husband’s party lifestyle.

Dita Von Teese definitely knows how to look fabulous, regardless of the season.

In November 2011, the American burlesque dancer, model, costume designer, entrepreneur and occasional actress showed off her fabulous figure in a glamorous ensemble while out and about during a London winter.

She kept herself warm in a stylish fur-trimmed winter coat that concealed her enviable curves, but still hinted at her sexy silhouette.

The burlesque queen paired her coat with black satin pumps from Christian Louboutin and finished off her look with perfectly styled hair and red lips that added a dash of color to her all-black ensemble.

This ruffle-adorned pair of shoes seems to be a favorite of Dita’s, considering she has shown off her feet in the same “Escandria” pumps on three different occasions.
