Dita Von Teese

Last month, a couple of friends (who shall remain nameless to protect the not-so-innocent) and I went to see Dita Von Teese perform at a local club. We saw her signature act where, after removing her complicated clothing, she climbs into a gigantic martini glass. As a nice touch, she then bathes with an olive-shaped sponge that’s about the size of her head. With her 50’s “Bettie Page” film-noir often-corseted look, she’s become the cover girl for the current burlesque revival. She put on quite a show and I’m a sucker for her glamorous vintage look. She’s making another rare public appearance at Man Ray (which is a show in itself) this Friday. Send me an e-mail if you want to join me.
