Product description

Famed photographer Sheryl Nields brings burlesque superstar Dita Von Teese to life in a series of flip books that capture the dancer's most intimate performances. A perfect collectible book for fans of Dita, classic burlesque devotees, or for anyone who loves a playful and beautifully packaged book, "Dita: Striptease" is an exquisite visual tribute to this one-of-a-kind performer, featuring three of her most beloved dances. Martini Glass Show - Performed all over the world, the martini glass show is Dita's most famous burlesque act. Featuring her in her 'Diamonds in the Buff' costume, Dita performs a traditional striptease that culminates with her bathing herself in an oversize martini glass, complete with olive sponge. Bird of Paradise Show - Inside a posh gilded Victorian birdcage, burlesque's brightest star reinvents the classic feather fan dance with two lush oversize feather fans of exotic, rare magenta pheasant feathers. In an extraordinary costume of beautifully curved feathers, Dita spins around on her golden perch, and treats audiences to an unforgettable wet and wild finale as sparkling water showers over her body. Classic Striptease - This striptease features Dita dressed in a vintage suit complete with a veiled hat, seamed stockings, and sky-high stilettos. Audiences get a glimpse into Dita's personal wardrobe - and what she reveals underneath it!

Review quote

"In a sea of naked-faced, denim-clad Hollywood beauties, [Dita's] rouged, primped appearance and unabashed glamour were as exotic as a bird of paradise in a room full of daisies."--Elle
