Point blank: We’re completely jealous of Dita Von Teese right now. Not only is she utterly flawless and basically every burlesque-lovin’ man’s dream, BUT she’s dating jack-of-all-trades-international-man-of-mystery Louis-Marie de Castelbajac. If you immediately were all, “HMMMMMM, that name sounds familiar,” you’re either a.) super duper smart or b.) obsessed with FASHUN. He’s the son of French fashion designer Jean-Charles de Castelbajac (JCDC for those in the know).
And it looks like he definitely took some style tips from his pops! We’re in love with the preppy European look he sported while strolling around Paris with Ms. Dita—a button-up shirt, black blazer (with the collar flipped up!), and khakis. He de-fratified (this is now a word) this outfit with some retro brown buckle shoes, chic sunnies, a clean-shaven face, and by throwing some pomade into his tousled ’do. (And, um, yeah, that extra close-up photo of his face? That was from a Mango event a few days prior, but LOOK AT THOSE BABY BLUES. We couldn’t NOT show you that pore-free face up close.) And jusssstt when we were falling for this totally babely, well-dressed, impeccably groomed dude, we found out the guys’ got brains too!
When he’s not working as an aspiring actor (under an interesting pseudonym, nonetheless), this fine Frenchie is *gasp* starting his own clothing line! The collection, called Panda Kunst, features graphic tees and sweaters with handwritten phrases like “Thank God I’m An Atheist” and “Bauhaus Is My House” strewn across the chest. His clothing takes a cue from the pop culture-inspired clothing of his father with a bit of an art school dropout feel.
Not only is it amazing that he designs his own line of clothes, but think of all that ACCESS Dita has to free designer JCDC threads! I mean, we don’t think she’d use him for that because he’s a PERSON and he has FEELINGS (hot feelings), but it’s a sweet plus. We consider this boy-f a 1,000,000 percent upgrade from her former hubby Marilyn Manson, so that leaves us with only one thing to say: Get it, Dita.
