When the invitations to take part in an intimate cocktail making class with Dita von Teese were sent out I bet the RSVPs came back quicker than you can say 'Cointreau Privé' – which is the newest, time-limited, members only cocktail lounge* in London, styled after the art deco home and ambassadored by the owner of what must be the slimmest waist (22in, can be laced down to 16.5in!) in the world.

Meeting Dita was pretty cool. Not only does she look as perfect in real life as in pictures – tiny, dream proportions, expertly make-uped and dressed (Dolce and Gabbana, I asked her) – but she's also funny, soft spoken and relaxed, talking us (with the help of a flashy bartender) through the in and outs of preparing the Citrus & Spice cocktail** which was so delicious that I just kept drinking… becoming happier and chattier by the minute, leaving a perfect evening... (& now hoping there isn't a secret 'bloggers who cannot cope with alcohol' list created somewhere.)

Fab shots. Dita looks so poised all the time. Thanks for posting these Sabine!

northwest is best said...

Lovely photos! Does Dita drink? I can't imagine alcohol and a 16.5 inch waist are compatible.

SabinePsynopsis said...

Northwest is Best - I think she does enjoy the occasional drink. She told us that she really likes to serve a cocktail to her guests, but she doesn't drink on her own.

Fashionistable said...

Wow just look at you and your NBF. Way to go Sabine. Xxxx

Veshoevius said...

You and Dita both look fantastic, as does that red-lit corset dress! What a treat of an evening. Cointreau is one of my favorite ingredients in a cocktail or even in a chocolatey dessert ... mmm.

BTW, loved your comment on wild academics! I was a campus brat myself (both parents professors). And even though they both also held posts outside of the university, they were never happier than when they were engaged in boisterous, scholarly jousting with their colleagues! xx
