Dita von Teese continued to sparkle in her role as ambassador for Cointreau by hosting a poolside soiree at the Beverly Hill Hotel in California yesterday.

The princess of darkness embraced the gloriously beautiful weather by donning a Jenny Packham Spring 2012 gown.

The long lace gown with cascading colourful beaded flowers may be considered a tad OTT for a pool party, but this is the always impeccably dressed Dita we are talking about here.

With palm trees in the backdrop and a glass of Cointreau in her hand, Dita completed her look with her signature retro styling.
