On one side, Dita Von Teese shares the beauty of the burlesque world, with bubblegum dreams and show tunes to strip to. Flip over for fantasies in fetish with dramatic costumes and the allure of submission. Burlesque and the Art of the Teese "I advocate glamour. Every day. Every minute." I'm a good dancer and a nice girl, but I'm a great showgirl. I sell, in a word, magic. Burlesque is a world of illusion and dreams and of course, the striptease. Whether I am bathing in my martini glass, riding my sparkling carousel horse, or emerging from my giant gold powder compact, I live out my most glamorous fantasies by bringing nostalgic imagery to life. Let me show you my world of gorgeous pin-ups, tantalizing stripteases, and femmes fatales. I'll give you a glimpse into my life, but a lady never reveals all. Fetish and the Art of the Teese You may have come for the fetish. Or you may just be sneaking a peek at this mysterious and peculiar other side. No matter what you've come for, there is something for you to indulge in. My world of fetish may not be the one that you would expect. As a burlesque performer, I entice my audience, bringing their minds closer and closer to sex and then -- as good temptress must -- snatching it away. As a fetish star, I apply the same techniques...An opera-length kid leather glove, a strict wasp waist, an impossibly high patent leather heel, a severely painted red lip...Come with me into my world of decadent fetishism.

About Dita von Teese

Dita Von Teese is the brightest star in burlesque since Gypsy Rose Lee. As style icon and muse to artists, designers, and photographers, she has appeared on magazine covers and runways for Jean Paul Gaultier, Moschino, and Giambattista Valli, and is the performer of choice for Marc Jacobs, Christian Louboutin, and Louis Vuitton. Her DIY beauty ethos and entrepreneurial ventures-designing award-winning perfumes, lingerie, gloves, and clothes, and as directing producer on her touring stage extravaganzas-have established her as a role model to women. Her books include the bestseller Burlesque and the Art of the Teese/Fetish and the Art of the Teese and Dita: Stripteese. Dita and her feline, Aleister, live under the gaze of the star-viewing Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles.

Customer reviews

For Dita lovers, this is the ultimate companion. We are given countless high quality photographs of the lovely lady herself, an account of her evolution and there is even an American burlesque history lesson thrown in there. This book also gives practical tip to budding burly girls, complete with songs, hair and makeup tips and recommended movies. We are also given two sides of this very talented coin, when read one way the book shows Dita's burlesque/showgirl side and when turned over and flipped the book provides a look into the dark fetish performance. A nice book for your coffee table or bookshelf and a definite must for Dita fans!show more
