Dita Von Teese



One of my very amazing Hanukkah presents was tickets to see Dita Von Teese at the Roxy in LA. Dita Von Teese has long been one of my personal icons, and the timing just happened to work out perfectly (I arrived in LA yesterday, and planned the trip before the show dates were announced!) that I could see her for the first time. To my delight, she was also performing with my a few of my favorite burlesque staples, like Miss Dirty Martini and Murray Hill. The show was every bit as glamorous and beautiful as I had hoped for.

Even besides the unworldliness of the female form that was on display, I fawned over the custom swarovski covered Louboutins (cowboy boots with glittering spurs! gorgeous art deco inspired heels!) and velvety pink tufted mechanical bull, enormous, colorful feathers, the clawfoot bathtub, the sparkling curtains... I really, really love everything that goes into the production of these shows.





I also uploaded a short video of her closing act here. Check it out!
