Dita Von Teese Is Unrecognisable In Teen Snap Posted On Instagram (PICS)

Dita Von Teese is completely unrecognisable in a photo posted on Instagram which shows the burlesque performer sunbathing when she was sixteen.

Dita is well known for her classic ‘50s style and porcelain skin, however she hasn’t always looked like a Hollywood screen siren.

Dita shared the old photo on Instagram

Dita, real name Heather Renée Sweet, actually used to look like any other American teen, complete with glossy blonde locks and sunkissed skin.

Dita herself was shocked by the photo and shared her thoughts with fans on Instagram, writing: “Found this pic of me sunbathing, age 16.”

“I still love the beach, but these days I prefer to enjoy it with sun protection or by moon-bathing in a black swimsuit paired with diamonds,” she added.

As well as carving a successful career as a model and dancer, Dita has also designed her own lingerie ranges and released a number of fragrances.
