Too dirty for Harvard
The Harvard Club is home to the richest folk of New York - not the young celebes who come and go but the super-rich who maintain the Opera and the Metropolitan Museum of Art and they hold an annual Halloween party at their very exclusive club. What they weren’t expecting as part of the entertainment this year was Dirty Martini, international burlesque star, naked on a chaise lounge!
As the late great Kenny Everett used to say, it was ‘all in the best possible taste’. Ms Martini was posing for a sculpture being created out of wire by Skye Ferrante, himself a New York notable; a former professional ballet dancer who now makes his wire sculptures as performance art (but they sell for $1000 dollars each, so it’s not exactly pocket money activity). Even so, some of the guests were shocked and complained. Club management informed Dirty Martini that she had to wear a Halloween cape and pasties as “This [was] the first time there [had] ever been nudity in the history of the Harvard Club, founded in 1865, and definitely the last.”
Oh, and if you’re loving Dirty Martini’s shoes, we’ve got just what you want! Gold sequinned burlesque shoes just like hers!Read More
