Dita Von Teese has a drink named after her, now that she’s the new face of Cointreau: The Cointreau Teese. It’s made with Cointreau, apple juice, lemon juice and violet syrup — looks super pretty, sounds super gross. You know that you’ve officially arrived when a hospital wing, a Marc Jacobs handbag or a cocktail has been named after you. It’s really the hallmark confirmation of fame.
Last night was the launch party, and Dita was there in her trademark burlesque look. Also there, Jewel in a maxi dress, Perez Hilton looking like the asshat that he is, and Solange Knowles who offended a bunch of people this afternoon by Tweeting “Salute to the vagina power! Dita Von Teese is haute!” The use of the term “vagina” is really upsetting to people in 2009?
Totally unrelated to Dita, but now Solange is typing All. her. tweets. like. this. Do you think she got that from me? She’s ranting about something — the most I can gather is that she thinks black women are imprisoned by their hair. I’ve been sending her Tweets back like: “What. the. hell. are. you. talking. about?” and “Are. you. crazy?”
Tommy Chong was there looking like he had the munchies, as was Margaret Cho who was looking great. Wilmer Valderrama showed up wondering if anyone had seen his “career” run by and the incredibly hot Mayte Garcia — she was married to Prince for four years, but somehow managed to have her marriage annulled — made an appearance as well.
