Ever fashionable and classy-styled Dita von Teese is bringing her aesthetic to the bedroom, thanks to Moschino. The retro queen, known for her red lips and soft Hollywood curls, put her design mind to work to create a limited-edition sleep mask for the brand. In the end, Dita fashioned a pink silk-satin eye mask with rhinestone embellishments, feathers and lace with trompe l’oeil eyelash detailing, complete with its very own case (all for $130), so now even falling asleep can become a stylish moment.
