Dita Diversion?

It seems that Dita Von Teese is strutting elegantly from full on burlesque diva to lingerie maven - her latest collection of underwear - the Dita line for Myer (Australia) is as seductive and alluring as ever, but this time around the campaign launching the lovely lingerie reveals less Dita and more models. While she says this is because she is completely involved with ‘… designing … the collection, and the styling and hair and make-up … it can be difficult to be a model at the same time,’ she’s also stated in the past that she doesn’t want to be a sixty year old in G-string. While we applaud her business sense, we think that the thing about burlesque is that you can do it at any age, and if you’re a sixty year old who rocks a G-string, then rock it!

When a relative of one of the clients saw her in an online video and complained, Bromley Council got involved. They’ve said that she must cease portraying an elderly person in her act and clear any future acts with her employers, to which she has agreed.

red burlesque outfitHere at Love Burlesque we’re never surprised by Katy Perry – let’s be honest, how much more surprising can she be, after marrying Russell Brand, dying her hair blue and losing to one of her fans in a ‘Who Knows Most About Katy Perry’ contest?* So, we’re not even a little bit surprised to discover she’s been made up to look like an elderly Vegas burlesque dancer (her words, not ours) for the video** accompanying her new single, ‘Birthday’.
