Hotel Regent Porto Montenegro welcomes Dita Von Teese

With its official grand opening ceremony scheduled for August 27, Hotel Regent Porto Montenegro recently welcomed its first guests, one of them being Hollywood icon, Dita Von Teese – known as the 'Queen of Burlesque'.

Von Teese visited the hotel to attend the auction of a portrait of her by Milena Zevu, a renowned multimedia artist hailing from Belgrade. Organised by event agency, The Duke, New York, the 'Royal Cocktail' auction took place in The Library Bar of Regent Porto Montenegro in early August.

The portrait, made from over 13,000 Swarovski crystals, was successfully sold, with a third of the proceeds donated to Foundation Petrovic – Njegos – a Montenegrin charity which aids in the promotion and preservation of the country's identity, culture and tradition.

During the auction, Von Teese enthused: "I am thrilled to be here, and that the auction has generated funds and awareness for this worthy cause."
