No sweatpants for Dita Von Teese

Dita Von Teese never wears sweatpants.

The 43-year-old burlesque dancer is known for her glamorous ensembles and doesn't let her standards slip, even in the privacy of her own home.

She told PEOPLE: "I've loved finding ways to be comfortable around the house, but glamorous at the same time.

"I always collected vintage robes and pyjamas. In my early teens, I discovered I could buy vintage 1950s slips for next to nothing, and that was my look. I decided I was going to look like Elizabeth Taylor in 'Cat on a Hot Tin Roof', and I thought, 'How glamorous but comfortable: I don't have to put on sweatpants!'"

While her appearance is always flawless, Dita insisted that her daily beauty routine doesn't take very long.

She explained: "Going to Pilates, going to the grocery store, seeing friends - I'll usually spend about 20 minutes getting ready. Then, I have my, like, 70 percent power glamour look for meetings or if I think I might get photographed: That's something I might spend 45 minutes on. And for my full red carpet look, I spend 1 1/2 hours."
