Dita Von Teese wants a £776 sex toy for Christmas.

The 44-year-old burlesque dancer has her eyes on a classy Betony Vernon sensual String of Pearls Ring, which doubles up as an ''erotic petting'' piece so she can get ''naughty'' for the holidays.

Talking about the x-rated item, she said: ''Naughty but also very, ver nice! I love the way this erotic ring is glamorised with pearls ... a fantastic conversation piece! You just turn it around, and it's a petting ring!''

The busty brunette beauty also loves nothing more than slipping into a sexy silk dressing gown and parading around the house.

Whilst posing in just that, she told The New York Post: ''Why not live the dream by wafting around the house in a glamorous dressing gown and comfy, cosy bunny slippers made from recycled mink?''

Meanwhile, Dita - who was married to shock rocker Marilyn Manson from 2005 to 2007 - says getting her first pair of ballet shoes is his her favourite Christmas memory.

She said: ''My fondest holiday memories are being a little girl and waking up to snowfall in Michigan and getting my first pair of ballet pointe shoes.

''There's nothing better than childhood Christmas memories.''

Dita will no doubt be donning her trademark red lipstick this festive season.

And the glamorous beauty - who is renowned for her 1940s styling - likes to spend time on her outfit, but even when she is in a rush she believes rouged lips help create a high-impact look.

She previously said: ''One of the things that I do to have a glamorous day is to take a bit of time to put on make-up and chose clothes that I like to wear - it doesn't mean being uncomfortable, I don't wear corsets or stockings every day but a little bit of red lipstick goes a long way.''
