On her insecurities:

‘Just like everyone else, I am not always confident, I have all the same self-doubt. I just try to love myself and accept things that I don’t like about myself and I think it’s something important for all women to know that we all have those feelings. Everyone has something about them that they wish they could change, everyone I know anyways, and it’s about learning to love those things too.’

… says 40 year-old Dita in Bwatt Magazine while posing in the tiniest outfits and showing off her impossibly tiny waist.

    I never realized she was this thin. I think her face can look very good, but as she admitted a lot of its down to makeup.

    • Candy M.

      And usually when people talk about how young a 40 year old looks I think they’re exaggerating. In this case though I thought she was much younger. She really doesnt look 40 at all.

  • cloud9

    FIERCE!!! she is so hot, i cannot even handle it.

  • ramona

    I don’t think that she is that beautiful, but there is something about her.. the way she carries herself makes her so much more attractive than she is (only judged by looks) she’s always dolled up and so lady-like. And it totally fit her, it seems like she’s ment to look this way. Like it isn’t a mask or an act. I hope you know what I mean 😀

    • Winnie

      yes! that’s exactly how i see her! not as pretty, or beautiful, or even all that good-looking or anything like that. but the way she carries herself is very intriguing and captivating. that makes her attractive!

  • Nana

    At least she’s not among the sea of blonde bimbos you hear about so often. She has a mysterious darkness to her.

    • lc

      She is a natural blonde.

    • Nowadays most bimbos we hear about are brunettes.

    • snoops

      Are blonde bimbos somehow so much worse than brunette bimbos? Are you saying brunettes are somehow superior to people with fair hair? The blondes = dumb nonsense is so outdated no one believes that anymore….

  • carrie

    she is thin. i have read 5’6 115 lbs-seems about right

    • serena

      I think more like 5’3″ 115 lbs, she is not that tall.

  • Isabelke

    I never really understood her beauty (even though i love pale skin and dark hair), until I saw videos of her…it’s true, the way she carries herself, her voice, attitude, etc… make her sexy

    She also looks great w.o make up

  • Manda

    I really don’t find that corseting attractive at all. If this makes any sense, it makes her hips look too angular. Maybe that is more her posture. She looks better lounging in a bra and panties, imo.

  • lc

    This woman is so fake to me, her whole look is just a gimmick. I don’t think she is beautiful. Especially not caked in all this makeup.

    • energydrink

      True, she bought vintage/pin-up looks back into the mainstream by constantly wearing her getup with dedication and proper media exposure through Marilyn Manson, however effectively she is just another overglorified porn star(yes, she did porn even if it wasn’t with a man) and stripper..

      While Bernie Dexter is also just a Betty Page clone, I still prefer her looks. In spite of rigorous waist traning, Dita will never have an hourglass figure due to her narrow hips. While Bernie is also small framed and has natural breasts, her WHR are naturally much more defined, corsets only enhance it rather than try to force something thats not there. Dita is too artificial imo as well.

      • John

        Bernie Dexter has floppy spaniels ears which are super small. she’s a true pear. She just dyed her blond and it looks awful. she’s WAY past it now and spams fans endlessly with her gross LA sweatshop clothing. It is really icky to log on and see her used teddy from 80s! Heebie jeebies!

        • Jane

          Yes, I too, have seen an influx of Bernie Dexter’s used underwear/lingerie for sale on ebay. What’s up with that?? She models underwear/lingerie for her pinup photos and posts the pictures on Facebook. Then a month or so later she lists those very same items on ebay and then posts the ebay listings on Facebook. You’d have to be pretty stupid not to see what she’s doing. It’s like she’s hoping that some perverted male fan will pay stupid amounts of money for items that her hcrotch was in. Not classy or glamorous…just gross. As for the blonde hair, it didn’t work for her but when you use a white background and extremely high-impact lighting for your photo shoots you’re gonna look “washed out”. Her fans expressed that they preferred her as a brunette and she got all insecure and whiney about it. She had to post several long-winded messages on Facebook (all in one day) about how she didn’t want to hear people’s opinions about her hair. Personally, I think she’s a walking contradiction. On one hand she’s an attention-whore who’s constantly posting pictures of herself on the internet and looking validation from her fans on how pretty she is but on the other hand she’s an insecure, 44-year old who doesn’t want to hear people’s opinion unless it is

On one hand she’s an attention-whore who’s constantly posting pictures of herself on the internet so she can read all the comments and feel validated but on the other hand she’s an insecure, 44-year old who doesn’t want to hear people’s opinion of her unless they are calling her “gorgeous” and “beautiful”. I read a lot of comments from so-called fans saying that if she can’t handle people’s comments then perhaps she should consider closing her Facebook page. I also read another comment that said the rant showed her to be “weak” and “fragile”. You’re right. She’s well past her prime and like Dita needs to dry up and blow away.

        • Barbara

          Have you seen her hair lately?? She was obviously embarrassed by all the feedback about how bad her hair looked and went back to brown. Like really…who does that?? She says it’s only hair but do you realize how much damage all that bleaching has done? Have you seen her hair lately? It’s awful. It looks like it has been processed to death. And that brown drug-store hair dye that she used to cover it up looks even worse! I’m sure she’ll be going back to black pretty quick here. And what’s up with those bangs?? It looks like a 5 year old cut them. Seriously, she’s really losing her touch. Tsk, tsk….poor Bernie

          • John

            Her karma is coming back to her. She’s back stabbed and needlessly attacked so many people that its mind boggling. It has not even really achieved anything but some cheap *** **** clothing line that she’s clearly is running month to month and in heavy debt on. Her look only worked when it was the original rail thin, skull face Bettie Page clone. That at least said “knock off” not “mall matron”

          • Barbara

            Yup….she’s gone back to black just as we knew she would. What a loser to spend all that time and money bleaching her hair only to turn around a month later and dye it black again. Once a Bettie Page wanna-be..always a Bettie Page wanna-be…too bad she can’t admit it. What’s really interesting is how she bows to peer pressure. Let’s face it the woman has no identity of her own so she must coast off of Bettie Page’s TRADEMARK look. She’s also racist against Chinese designers. Have you seen this rant?
            http://www.pissedconsumer.com/reviews-by-company/queen-of-holloway/counterfeit-designs-made-in-china-by-queen-of-hollowy-20120630328427.html
            She’s telling people not to buy from Chinese dress designers because they are stealing from her and her British designer friends which is funny because none of the vintage reproduction clothing that Bernie and her British designer friends make are exactly original or their own creations. They have all stolen their designs from clothing that was made in the 40’s & 50’s so why can’t the Chinese do it too? She’s just mad because the Chinese are trying to get in on a market that Bernie thinks belongs to her and her British designer friends. Between Bernie’s hating on the Chinese and her husband’s love for the Confederate flag one has to wonder about the two of them.

          • John

            THAT is absurd. Bernie Dexter not only sells 100% copied designs she does not manufacture any of the fabrics she uses . She screams on facebook about being “copied” and people “stealing her designs and fabrics” when NOTHING she’s selling involved any creativity. She went ape **** a few months back because Pin Up Girl clothing issued a dress called The Atomic Swan which she claims is “her concept and fabric” when it has been a retro term for decades. That’s like saying she invented “Fall Out Shelter”. In fact it was those fabrics that caught the buyer’s eyes not her *** ugly designs. Take away all those grannny quilt patterns and she’d have no clothing line. There has to be some legality with her claiming they are her own in a public forum when she has NO exclusive rights or licensing on ANY of the designs and fabrics she uses. Someone really needs to go after her legally. That Holloway company from China is just a mirror of what she does straight up.

      • Jane

        Don’t kid yourself. Many years ago when Bernie Dexter was scary skinny she had very little WHR. In fact, corsets didn’t look good on her when she first started out (we’re talking like 13 years ago) because she didn’t have enough meat on her bones. She spent MANY years corset training to achieve the WHR she has now. I do agree with your comment that she is a self-made Bettie Page clone. She calls it a natural resemblance but really it’s the bangs and dye job that makes her resemble Bettie Page. Dita Von Teese was branded a “poor mimic” by Bettie Page for trying to impersonate her. Bernie has always denied that she copied or impersonated Bettie Page despite the numerous videos on Youtube, which were cleverly shot through a blurred lens or the thousands of photos of her where she and her hubby have re-created famous Bettie Page photos (same pose, clothes & props used in the photos). If Bettie considered Dita a poor mimic then I think we can all agree that Bettie would call Bernie a good one. There’s no way in hell that Bettie would look at picture of Bernie and say that Bernie was doing her own thing….no way!

        • John

          Good points. Without retouching she looks like a dried up cougar. What about the whole sobbing on FB “I have no money for my operation” and then she buys a house, goes all over Europe and stays at pricey hotels. all she does is whine, brag and Ebay spam. She possibly could have segued way into being a mature pin up but she’s still got that phony NASA sand blaster imaging and baby bows in her hair holding a teddy bear and doing the baw, baw, goo goo looks. And yes, she is the ONE person who has been threatened with a copyright lawsuit by Bettie Page’s estate. I agree she was scary skinny but it worked better than now. She just looks dorky heavier, it does not work. She’s a model not Pin up. Her whole vibe is a dithering, semi-literate, insecure Bettie Page wannabee. The endless spamming is insane though, I would never tolerate that as a fan, who the hell wants to buy her nasty bed sheet dresses made from grannie’s fabrics or her Forever 21 skank tops? NASTY!

          • Jane

            LOL! “Without retouching she looks like a dried up cougar”…you mean like this?

            http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b_EqLKX4FJ0
            http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WqjrN8-Adgc

            …and that video was shot in 2008. One can only imagine what she really looks like now. What about Si Cranstoun’s video for his song “1950’s Pinup Girl” which Bernie was in….

            http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bzJiGBJOrEI

            …she’s lookin’ pretty old in that one too. And last but not least this video which confirms that the Bettie Page wannabe is well past her prime and needs to give it up. This one is just embarrassing….she looks old AND out of shape!

            http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pILqsvCmBmo

            What’s with the Bettie Page-esque style of dancing…it’s no wonder Bettie’s estate and CMG Worldwide watch her like a hawk!

          • John

            Those videos are really sad and unfunny. If she was looking pitiful in a way that was unintentional funny I’d give it a thumbs up but nah, those look simply sad. After seeing that weird video where she’s squinting it is clear she’s using SERIOUS digital retouching. She’s not even human in her pics. It would be total poetic justice Page’s estate sued her!

          • Jane

            You’ll be happy to know that the Bettie Page wanna-be herself has been reading our comments!  Today on Facebook she posts “Haters don’t really hate you, they hate themselve cause you are a reflection of you wish to be”. Did you catch all the errors in that quote? I guess Bernie didn’t. What’s really funny is the comment she added to the quote before posting it: “wonderfully written” with heart signs even though the quote is plagued with spelling and grammatical errors. Illiterate much? Anywho…the underlying tone of the message is “you’re jealous because you wish you were me” and I’m afraid that couldn’t be furthest from the truth. Why would I wish that I was almost 50-yrs old? I’m in my early 30’s. Fail! I am also well-proportioned with a full bust (not saggy little breasts like Mrs. D) a small waist and round hips. Oh and my butt hasn’t fallen to the ground. Fail again. I mean, I don’t have a mouthful of big, crowed teeth nor do I have bags and wrinkles under my eyes nor do I need to photo shop EVERY picture of myself but hey, I wish I was Bernie Dexter! I guess if telling yourself that helps you deal with the fact that there are people out there who don’t like you because you’re a Bettie Page rip off and you won’t own up to it, then so be it. I take solace in knowing that once Bernie and Levi have departed this world there will be no legacy since she can’t have children…or at least that’s what she’s been telling people.

          • Delia Alloy

            I caught that weird illiterate thing as well. There is also “No refunds or Exchangers on her website! I’ll put money on a “I’m raising money for IVF campaign” so I’m spamming all of you even more.” i’d be ****** if was mod cloth or uVintage as she does her fire sale every week. DESPERATE!

          • Jane

            Has anyone seen the pictures she took of herself with her computer camera (again)? She’s obviously reading these posts everyday to see what’s been said about her. I find it truly entertaining that Bernie reads our comments and then reacts to them on Facebook. She’s a like a puppet on a string and we can make her dance at will! For example, I recently mentioned how she takes pictures of herself with her computer camera to prove to people that she doesn’t photo shop then 2 days ago she posts a picture taken with her computer camera. By the way it is a horrible self picture. You should all check it out. Just go to her Facebook page and see. You don’t need to join her page to see it either. She looks tired and old. You can also see just how much makeup she NEEDS to wear. Someone actually posted “Jesus, where’s your face?” and someone else posted “you look sad”. What really got me was the mess in the background of the picture which looks like a jumble of dresses and junk laying around. She says that it’s “her office – lots of work stuff”. What a slob!

          • Delia Alloy

            That picture is awful. Her eyes looked really messed up and fried. She reminds me of an older woman from the 1960/70s you’d see at an uncool dive bar wearing moth eaten clothing in some foreign country or urban area still holding onto the 50s era when it was totally uncool. Just losing her looks and not accepting that times have changed.

        • Jessica

          I’d like to chime in if I may. I can state from personal experience Bernie is a psycho BFH who should be put out to pasture. Vapid hag is too kind a label. She comes off sweet but in real life is a vile and nasty piece of work. She also looks nothing like Page-not even close. and yes, it is clear that she has attempted to rip her off from start to finish. I agree with John too, she must have dropped out of school in junior high or something as she is extremely stupid. Over and done indeed.

          • Jane

            Sorry that you had to be on the receiving end of one of Bernie’s psycho rants, Jessica. She is definitely screwed in the head. She’s the only modern pinup that takes to Facebook EVERY single time something doesn’t go her way. On one hand she preaches that people need to be positive and kind and “if you don’t have anything nice to say…blah, blah, blah” then she ostracizes her so-called “friends” if she feels they have crossed her and then trashes their name on her Facebook page. There’s just something not right about a 44-yr old who does that. Isn’t that considered cyber bullying? Something that Bernie claims she is a victim of herself? What a f*cking hypocrite!

          • Jessica

            That is exactly how I’d put it. She’s a back stabbing and a very mean person. She was trashing her own niece or some relative a few weeks ago. At least some of her karma is coming home to roost as most of the major sites who were carrying her dresses are scaling way back and all are getting younger models. She has no mystery or class so who can blame them?

          • Delia Alloy

            Oh my, she’s at it again. Complaining about how “sick” she is and that her “Ebay customers don’t care” if she’s tired. Bernie is a whining dried up prune.

      • Harlow Vintage

        Bernie may not have a perfect body (who does? Do you?) but she is not ugly at all. Sure she has that corset figure because of photo shop but again who does not in piup? Her clothing is not low quality either! I wear it all the time so I do not agree.

        • Jane

          Well considering you buy her over-priced clothing just so you can have your pictures posted on her Facebook page and her website, I have to say that you are bias. So of course you’re going to defend her. By the way, are you getting paid for all of this marketing you are doing for her? No? Surprise, surprise. Infact, YOU are paying her! She’s using you as a free marketing to promote her clothing line and you’re letting her all because she posts your pictures in her Facebook page. I believe correct terminology is “pawn”…

        • Gomez

          Jane is right. You have a weird brown nosing lap dog thing going on with Bernie Dexxter. She uses people all the time or flips out when they look at her the wrong way and you’ll be hosed next. All your arrowhead, C3PO expressions won’t help her out if she’s living off Ebay listings and throwing her BigLots clothing at people so I hope that **** is being comped. You should never pay to be someone’s tool.

          • Susan

            I remember her on Myspace years ago, before she had a clothing line, and she absolutely detested people who spamed her page. At that time, there were a lot of unknown, up-and-coming musicians who used Myspace as a place to network and get their name out there. It’s very similar to how Bernie uses Facebook. Interesting to know that she’s guilty of doing it herself. So let me get this straight. Bernie can use people for her own gain but goes psycho when others do it to her. Ya, that makes a lot of sense.

        • Beverly

          I have to agree with the previous comments…you’ve got some sort of Pavlov’s dog thing goin’ on with this person. I used to view Bernie’s FB page and I believe you go by the name Harlow Darling. You obviously enjoy the little bit of exposure your getting…and Bernie is more than glad to do it, as long as you keep buying her dresses. And for the price you have paid for them I think that’s the least she can do. I had to unlike her Facebook page. Between all of the ebay listings for her dresses and the long-winded posts about her insecurities, it got to be a bit of a drag. Seriously, who wants to log on to Facebook and have to go through her all her clothing adds just to get to the important posts left by family and friends? I frequent a lot of pinup pages on Facebook and she’s the only one with so much spam.

          And what’s a “piup”?

          • GonnaGetReal

            There ARE no posts about family and friends on Bernie Dexter’s Facebook page though. Truly It is ALL spam. Today she posted this illiterate ghetto inspirational saying: “Haters don’t really hate you, they hate themselve (sic) cause you are reflection (sic) of they wish to be (sic)”

            That must be like reading Tolstoy or Shakespeare to Bernie. She’s as thick as ****. And then 31 shares? Her followers must be REALLY dumb. Apart from being grammar checked by a guide dog, that makes no sense. “Reflection” is not what you wish to be, it is what you already are staring back at you. But yes Bernie Dexter is right, even with her second grade diploma, we all want to be so desperate for cash that we are spamming our mangey buttons, used panties and tea tray ebay listings on Facebook while married to a midget who performs with the KKK /Neo Nazi flag.

            http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e4BVwCWQLnU

            Wow. I wonder what some of the anti-racist pop culture websites would think of Levi and Bernie Dexter’s collective fetishism for the Confederate Flag and sick KKK symbols? All that twerp ever talks about was how great it was to fly his KKK flag on Merv Griffin 10,000 years ago. It would sure be tough on them if someone forwarded Racialicious etc al that You Tube clip. Victoria Secrets had to pull their Geisha Teddy because of Racialicious well Bernie has a Geisha titled DRESS made from little girls pictures! That’s WAY more effed up.

            Factor in the Stars and Bars and the fact she changed the name of her **** clothing line from “Rebel Girl” (as in Rebel Flag) to BD Clothing she may have some explaining to do! People aren’t as stupid as she is.

            Bernie Dexter has been doing the whole Confederate flag for ages. it is part of the rockabilly look and all these old dumb as rocks Brit guys think the whole white South vibe cool.

          • Tisha

            What a sad and sick bunch of haters you all are. Maybe if you actually achieve something with your sad lives like Bernie have you won’t be so obsessed with hating her. And by the way Stevens, the Rebel Confederate Flag is NOT a symbol of hate, I believe that Bernie and Levi Dexter use and perform with it to show pride in the Southern connection to roots rock. The only ignorant and stupid person is YOU.

          • Jane

            Oh ya? How ’bout this??

            http://media.photobucket.com/user/minddfogg/media/BernieDexter.jpg.html. I suppose now you’re going to tell me that a swastika isn’t a symbol of hate either, right? I dare you tell a black person in the United States that the Confederate Flag isn’t a symbol of hate and see how far you get..,,moron!

          • John

            Tisha it is funny that the only time I have seen Confederate Flags are at rallies where they preach hatred of human being because of there skin color. Oh and I think a few million people who thought the US should break apart and there should still be men and women sold like cattle. But I’m sure Bernie Dexter and Levi Dexter fly the Confederate flag and use it in what they do because it is connected to kindness, not the South and hatred…. NOT. Also both are niche unknowns who have achieved nothing. No one envies such filth.

          • Carrie

            I’m willing to bet a million dollars that “TIsha” is either Bernie Dexter or Harlow Vintage under a false name. It kind of looks like Bernie’s illiterate jibberish. Anyone notice how she’s been absent from Facebook lately? Well sort of. She’s still spamming everyone with her ebay listings but that’s about it. I’m sure it’s because of what’s posted on here. Rather than ignore this thread, I’m sure she comes to this blog everyday to see what’s been posted about her and ends up feeling sorry for herself, hence the sudden inactivity on Facebook…

          • Jane

            How about this for racist?

            http://media.photobucket.com/user/minddfogg/media/BernieDexter.jpg.html?filters%5Bterm%5D=bernie dexter&filters[primary]=images&filters[secondary]=videos&sort=1&o=15

            I found this image on photobucket….

        • Barbara

          I wonder if Harlow Vintage realizes that she just insulted Bernie by agreeing with us and saying that Bernie “has a corset figure because of photo shop”? For years, Bernie has contested that she doesn’t use photo shop, going as far as to post candid pictures of herself, shot with her computer camera before a night out on the town. I mean, we all know that those cheap computer cameras take the clearest photos.

          • Gomez

            Yeah, what’s up with that? lol Harlow is a REALLY dull tool in the shed. But yeah, I don’t hate, I really just ” see the reflection of I want to be themselves…” ROTFLMAO!

      • Steves

        I may be late getting to the game here on our friend Bernie Dexter but frankly I do not disagree with anything I’m reading. Every single thing she does is a facsimile or a copy of something else. I agree with one of the comments about her whole operation too. I believe it was actually a fake act to get money or it was greatly exaggerated as an excuse to start spamming and going cut rate. If you can afford multiple trips to the UK in one year you can afford healthcare. In any case just keep your nether regions to yourself. The spamming fans is outrageous though. I know a couple who sell repro who carried her line from when she was just starting out but had to start passing because she’s incapable of maintaining a decent price. They’d get a new shipment and then within about two weeks the same 156.00 dress is at an opening a bid a 25.00 on Ebay. That’s a big “you know what you” to her customers too but as other maintain here, she’s out for herself so that’s nothing new just vapid.

        • Layla

          Hey, I was wondering the same thing. Last year she was plugging people to buy her stuff so she could save up for her tumor surgery but I have to wonder. She has her own clothing business, plus she still models for other designers, she travels to Europe twice a year and just bought a huge house yet she’s scraping together funds for an operation? Let’s not forget about all the renovations she did to the house she is currently living in. I was wondering what the deal was. Looks like she’s one of the many scam artists in the good ol’ U.S. of A

          • ShakinStevens

            When she was posting all those tacky pics of her home that’s when I stopped linking her. Where does she get off bragging on and on to people about her purchases and then crying about “no health care”?

        • Lilo

          And what’s up with that dead horse’s tail stuck to her head lately? She chopped off all of her fried, bleached blonde hair,pictures these days have a heavy amount of bright lighting. And just a few weeks ago she said “never black again”. What an indecisive wench. I feel sorry for her husband to have to deal with a such an insecure head case. Has anyone noticed that Bernie’s pictures in the last few days seem to have more high impact lighting and photo shopping than usual?

        • Jane

          Hey Bernie, I’ve bought some of your clothes and I do like your style but, I have to remember never to wash any of them again. They then become 2 sizes smaller. This is why apparel fabrics are for clothing, and quilting fabrics are for granny projects. Cotton back in the day was “sanforized” for this reason. Thankfully I know you sell off your goods on eBay. I’d be pretty pissed if I hadn’t paid 1/2 of retail!

          • Jane

            That’s okay…with her endless “one day left” sale you can always buy a few more! She’s using some of the oldest marketing tricks in the world. The old “sale is ending soon” gimmick which prompts people to buy NOW, only to find that she runs the same sale every week. My thinking is if you have to advertise a “sale” every week then your clothing isn’t moving like you thought it would…probably because it is too expensive.

          • DoobieDoo

            Actually no. From what I’ve heard I believe that she’s heavily behind in paying her factories so she has to undercut Peter to pay Paul. Her wholesale clients are left out to dry with her best sellers being taken down to cost which is 48.00 to 100.00 depending on the design. I believe most of the cheap dresses are 68.00 cost. If you look closely Mod Cloth gets in many of her better items that sell out in a few days which she herself can’t afford to carry because she needs their bulk order money up front. Items would move much slower on her website if she sold them piecemeal-that is if she could even afford to have them made. i don’t believe she can. Her way of doing business is just atrocious.

          • DoobieDoo

            No one would have looked without the fabrics she lies about “creating”, “owning” and “hand selecting” Some of them are for oven mitts.

      • ShakinStevens

        I may be late getting to the game here on our friend Bernie Dexter but frankly I do not disagree with anything I’m reading. Every single thing she does is a facsimile or a copy of something else. I agree with one of the comments about her whole operation too. I believe it was actually a blatantly fake act to get money or it was greatly exaggerated as an excuse to start spamming and going cut rate. If you can afford multiple trips to the UK in one year you can afford healthcare. In any case just keep your nether regions to yourself. The spamming fans is outrageous though. I know a couple who sell repro who carried her line from when she was just starting out but had to start passing because she’s incapable of maintaining a decent price. They’d get a new shipment and then within about two weeks the same 156.00 dress is at an opening a bid a 25.00 on Ebay. That’s a big “you know what you” to her customers too but as other maintain here, she’s out for herself so that’s nothing new just vapid.

  • I saw some photos of her without makeup – I find her very beautiful when she’s more natural. But I like her pin up style as well…

    Her waist.. Did she obtain that with corsets? Because it really does seem incredibly small, especially for modern day’s women.. It’s a tad extreme though I think.

    • sofie kittie

      Yes, she started wearing corsets in her teens

    • malika

      yeah, corset plus ribs removal

  • sofie kittie

    Lol what’s the point of wearing clothes that only cover a third of your boobs? You may as well just be naked

  • sofie kittie

    All these celebs are spouting the same sh*t these days: “even I feel ugly sometimes… love yourself… stay in school blah blah blah”

    • serena

      Haha I know. Once Megan Fox said something about how she would not want to trade places with an ugly girl because she knows her career is based on looks, and she got so much hate over it, but it’s true. Very easy to ‘love your flaws’ when you barely have any and are a model. Much harder to love your flaws if you’re genuinely unattractive.

      • Emilie

        It’s also easier to love your flaws post surgery like Gisele and Kelly Rowland have been spouting that.. Among many others

      • Emeline

        Agreed, at least Megan was honest

  • Mew

    I wish I had balls (ermm… not literally) to be as feminine as she is. She’s just stunning. All retro being in fashion, why it has to be the disaster decade of 80s, why not 40s-60s??

    • Lux

      LMAO, that statement is such an oxymoron!

  • roonie

    Something about her face is so unattractive.

    • Kate

      I feel ya

  • Carrie

    Height weight guess? 5’6 114??

    • Adele

      I think she’s shorter, maybe 5’3? She’s very petite.

      • ramona

        Yep seems about right. She does look “short”.

        Check out celebhights.. they are very precise when it comes to height and love to debate over it 🙂

  • Edan

    Her fake breasts are the best in hollywood. : )

    • neutra

      Concurred!

    • Rebel

      They ridge and have a sack poking through without photoshop. Bernie Dexter’s are natural but super small and very saggy.

  • Adele

    I’ve always had a soft spot for this woman, her looks, her personality, the way she advocates glamour and femininity. She was actually the inspiration for me to start dressing more girly. However, I lost some respect for her when she posed fully nude in Playboy, legs open and spreading herself and all that icky stuff. I thought she was more about the tease than full frontal nudity. I admire her striptease shows and glamour modeling but I don’t appreciate her straight-out porn pics.

  • siennagold

    Is her waist that small and tiny? Or is it photoshopped?

    • It’s really that small. She’s been corset training for years.

      • lex

        Ouch.

      • lex

        That sounds quite painful.

    • malika

      she took out 2 ribs

  • I like her. No matter how fake her persona is, she’s very charismatic.

  • snoops

    I kind of hate pin-up style, I see a lot of young woman going for this look and it just seems to theatrical to me. Thick foundation, drawn on super arched brows, heavy matt red lips, hair always black or red often with a white skunk stripe in the front, pinned up in styles that look to take so much time, not a hair out of place. I just dont get it! Give me beachy waves and tinted moisturizer over that anyday.

    • serena

      I agree. Pin up can look beautiful for a photoshoot but not constantly, it seems almost like a costume to me. I prefer a natural look on women.

    • Liv

      I agree… she seems like a nice person, and I give her props for going all the way with her character… living, eating, and breathing it… but she isn’t my favorite beauty… the photos of er without make up or with less makeup and her hair not so made up always appeal to me more… I love dressing nice but I hate over done make up for everyday… it seems like Halloween or a costume party… I think in Hollywood people are told “yes” so much they lose themselves and sometimes become their character…. it’s kind of sad…. Her face is a little too harsh for me in photos, she is prettier when she is on TV… I used to like her more but then she married Manson and maybe they were in love, but it all seemed like an act, and she really shot into the spot light with him. I don’t mind that, but I have never felt she was genuine.

    • Dalia

      I think the true Pin Up is NATURAL. All the greats, even Page did not wear 9000 layers of slap and look fake. They had natural, uncluttered beauty.

  • cameron baum

    GORGEOUS shots of her. I love her.

  • Carrie

    If she is 5″3 she weighs less than 115 more like 100 IMO

  • BernieBlows

    I absolutely hate Bernie Dexter!

    • Bethan

      You guys do realize this discussion is about Dita Von Teese, not Bernie Dexter, right? Perhaps you should start a thread just for Bernie…

      • Jane

        What a great idea! There really should be a thread dedicated to Bernie. Let’s see what we can come up with. Any suggestions?

        • Delia-aLloy

          I’m up for starting a Blog or a word press account. Bernie Dexter is revolting and needs to be called on it.

    • Layla

      Sounds like Miss Skanky Dexter can’t fit into her corsets anymore. On Sept. 17 she boasts on Facebook “Oh corsets have arrived for modeling..weeeee!” but I guess they didn’t fit as we haven’t seen her model them. Instead she posts on Sept. 20, “just wondering when i will physically start to feel normal again? getting very frustrated..feels like i have packets of flesh tapped to my body everywhere” which tells me the corsets that she was bragging about didn’t fit. You see, Bernie is almost 50 so her metabolism has slowed right down. For the past few years now, she’s been fighting the battle of the bulge, and losing, as she has so often confided through Facebook. And those packets of flesh she’s feeling? They’re big gnarly masses of scar tissue in her abdomen from her fibroid surgery…and scar tissue NEVER goes away. Maybe if she had children when she was young enough she wouldn’t have developed the fibroids in the first place. My guess is her vanity and ego kept her from having children but alas there is an upside as we can take comfort in knowing that there will be no Dexter legacy.

    • Jane

      Can you believe Bernie honestly thought she was Playboy material??? Sure some of the pictures that Levi has taken of Bernie have been in the Italian & German versions of Playboy but it’s not the same as being chosen to pose for the magazine. And the only picture of Bernie that did manage to make it into the American publication of Playboy was a drawing by Olivia de Berardinis, and it doesn’t even look like Bernie. See for yourself:
      http://eolivia.com/scripts/prodView.asp?idproduct=851&idCategory=49
      I’m sure CMG Worldwide had something to do with the fact that Bernie was drawn with strawberry blonde hair and not black hair, since Olivia is one of the few artists who has a license to draw Bettie Page legally for profit.
      Bernie once said in an interview that she did a screen test for Playboy magazine but they never called her back. I’m sure this is what she means when she says “so many missed opportunities” because of her “natural resemblance to Bettie”. She actually thinks that Playboy never contacted her because they have ties to CMG Worldwide who is the agent/lawyer for Bettie’s estate. Oh, of course! That MUST be the reason why she wasn’t called back to pose for Playboy. I mean, let’s forget the fact that Bernie was in her late 30’s when she tried out for Playboy which is old by Playboy’s standards when you consider the average Playboy model is between 21 to 25 years old. Or let’s forget the fact that she has tiny, saggy tits and an old deflated ass, two things that Playboy readers DON’T want to see. Or let’s forget that she only looks good when shot under extremely bright lighting with a white background, something that Playboy doesn’t do. Or let’s forget the fact that she’s got brown bags and wrinkles under her eyes which require a ton of makeup, photo shopping and airbrushing to hide, more so than Playboy’s younger models. Yes, let’s forget about the obvious reasons why she wasn’t chosen. It MUST be because Playboy was threatened by how much Bernie looks like Bettie. Isn’t it funny how Bernie never really became a model until her husband decided to become her photographer despite the fact that she’s been modeling since her teens?? That’s because she was never good enough to make the cut.

      • Barbara

        I have to say that everyone imitates someone. Jamie Deadly & Bernie Dexter are similar…Jamie Deadly imitates Marilyn Monroe and Bernie Dexter imitates Bettie Page. The difference is Jamie Deadly admits that she is a Marilyn Monroe impersonator where as Bernie Dexter denies it. Some of Bernie’s photos have been dead-on replicas of famous Bettie Page photos however she chalks it all up to a natural resemblance. Other than the DYED black hair and chopped bangs she looks nothing like Page and even though she likes to say “I hate being compared to Bettie Page” we all know she LOVES it when some loser compares her to the famous raven beauty.. In fact, no one on the planet thinks Bernie Dexter looks more like Bettie Page more than Bernie and her Elvis wanna-be husband, Levi. After all he was the one who said “I think you sort of look like Bettie Page..now go throw on some garters and stockings while I video tape you through a blurry lens”.

        • Foxy

          I like Bernie’s older videos. Sure she’s a Bettie Page look-a-like but so are most rockabilly girls. Betty and Marilyn are the standards for beauty and rockabilly girls want to emulate that. There’s obviously some copying on Bernie’s part but that’s what the whole 50’s revival is built on. All the guys think they are Gene Vincent, Johnny Cash or Elvis and the girls think they are Marilyn Monroe or Bettie Page. It’s fun to dress up and pretend you are someone from another era..

      • Gomez

        The airbrushing and chicken cutlet action on Bernie is laughable these days. she should celebrate the fact she’s tater tots. She also has spam bots on her facebook account which is why she’s gained 20K lines in a week or so. Facebook with catch up with her and knock her back.

  • Barbara

    yes…it’s fun to dress up and pretend you are someone you’re not…just like in Vegas

    • Iris

      Exactly my thinking! Bernie and Levi Dexter are a couple of impersonators that belong in Las Vegas. He likes to dress up and prance around on stage pretending he’s Elvis and Bernie dresses up and poses like a buck-toothed Bettie Page. And neither admits that they are impersonating…

    • Iris

      Speaking about pretending you are someone you’re not, in an online interview with fashion blogger, Old Hollywood Glamour, Bernie Dexter spoke about Bettie Page saying “I never did study her” and “I really have just been being myself and not trying to emulate her” but I think her videos beg to differ. Ever notice how grainy & blurry Bernie’s videos are? Considering Levi studied up on photography before becoming Bernie’s photographer, you’d think the videos would be of better quality like her photos which are always super bright and clear. I believe there’s a reason for this and it has everything to do with impersonating Bettie Page. A video shot with enough blur and distortion will make ANY girl with that trademark hairstyle resemble Bettie Page. Distortion and blurriness aside, there’s also the issue of copied mannerisms, facial expressions and movements in the
      videos. Not to mention the Irving Klaw style of editing, which has close-ups of Bernie’s face spliced between
      full-body shots, just like it was done in Bettie’s movies. Judge for yourself…

      Notice how the music isn’t in time with Bernie’s dancing just like in Bettie’s movies?

      Bernie’s blatant rip-off of Bettie Page’s Dance of the Seven Veils…
      https://myspace.com/bernie_dexter/video/wild-harem-girl/2231624
      Bettie’s version…
      http://www.metacafe.com/watch/2614608/bettie_page_harem_betty_belly_dance/

      There’s also Bernie’s “Wondrous Dance” v.s. Bettie’s “Flirtatious Dance” and Bernie’s “Wiggle Dance” which incorporates a mirror-image of Bernie, something Irving Klaw did in one of Bettie’s dancing movies. The mirror technique was also used in the movie The Notorious Bettie Page. This is all the proof one needs to believe that Bernie Dexter was (and still is) a major Bettie Page impersonator. It’s no wonder Bettie Page’s estate and lawyers are all over her.

  • DoobieDoo

    A few days she was going bat **** over a young model who wanted to promote and work with her….Miss illiteracy accused her of using “texting words” ahahaha! So sickened by this vapid phtopshop thing.

    • DobbieDoo

      *photoshop* just to write about Bernie is to catch a whiff of her stupidity!

  • Jenny

    Levi Dexter is a racist m*ther f*cker!

    • gomez

      Agreed. That Lily Ann brown nose of Bernie’s who poses in her sick ” red Indian” outfits is equally as gross. Someone alert racialicious!

      • Percy

        Lilly Ann’s facial expressions always look like someone kicked her in the seat of her pants. There’s a candid picture of her on Facebook (not take by a professional photog) and man she’s one hard looking girl. She looks like she fell out of an ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down! See for yourself…

        • Percy

          Bernie Dexter doesn’t look all that great either. Nor does the blond (Cinderella Rockafella). I see three ladies that would be absolute DOGS without their makeup!

  • Gabby

    So much for that big house she recently moved into….She’s without a furnace and natural gas to heat her house! Looks good on the stupid b*tch. I hope she freezes her ass off! Who moves in winter anyways??? Most people with a brain move during spring and summer. The fact they moved in October and didn’t have their heating looked after before moving in shows how stupid this couple is. Too busy proving to us that she can still impersonate Bettie Page with the best of them, meanwhile now your in a house that has no heat. LOL!

    • Bobby

      I saw that too! Like WTF?? Getting your heat set up in your new house should be a priority if you are moving in October. I’m glad she’s freezing. She just bought all those Facebook likes and now can’t do anything with them. The her male fans will lose interest VERY fast! haha

    • Gomez

      I think her chicken cutlets and saggy breasts would turn any heating technician off!
