Dita Von Teese – Strip Strip Hooray!

Oh, Dita!

For those of you who are not familiar, Dita Von Teese is the international QUEEN of Burlesque. Her beauty, style, and elaborate attire have made her a worldwide sensation in the burlesque world. Last week she came to New York to perform and I had the pleasure of watching her and her troupe undress and bat their eyelashes. It was divine.

Dita’s show was a spectacle of glamour and glitter. It comprised of four of her own performances and about six performances by other burlesque stars from all over the world, ranging from the sexiest man, Monsieur Romeo, to the smallest woman, Selene Luna. All hosted by “the hardest working middle-aged man in show business,” MC Murray Hill.

Dita began the show with a martini glass act featuring a very classy and seductive disrobing before stepping up into a large martini glass complete with twirling and splashing.

Next came the famous ‘Rhinestone Cowgirl!’ performance. My jaw dropped as Dita came on stage in a head to toe pink glitter cowgirl outfit. She whipped out her lipstick, then her gun, and off the clothes went!

Dita’s third performance, entitled ‘Bird of Paradise,’ was an exquisite portrayal of an exotic bird. Even the bird cage sparkled. Every tiny detail of each performance was well thought out and planned. It was perfect.

The final performance of the evening was Dita’s ‘Opium Den,’ an exotic Asian themed love nest. Spectacular!
