dita von teese
Von Teese is best known for her burlesque routines and is frequently dubbed the “Queen of Burlesque” in the press. Von Teese began performing burlesque in 1992, and, as a proponent of New Burlesque, has helped to popularize its revival.
In her own words, she “puts the tease back into striptease” with long, elaborate dance shows with props and characters, often inspired by 1930s and 1940s musicals and films. Some of her more famous dances have involved a carousel horse, a giant powder compact, a filigree heart and a clawfoot bathtub with a working shower head. Her signature show features a giant martini glass. Her feather fan dance, inspired by burlesque dancer Sally Rand, featured the world’s largest feather fans, now on display in Hollywood’s Museum of Sex.

Some days are just bad days, that’s all. You have to experience sadness to know happiness, and I remind myself that not every day is going to be a good day, that’s just the way it is!

Dita Von Teese

Her burlesque career has included some memorable performances. She once appeared at a benefit for the New York Academy of Art wearing nothing but $5 million worth of diamonds.
Additionally, Von Teese became the first guest star at Paris’s Crazy Horse cabaret club with her appearance in October 2006.
Also in 2006, Von Teese appeared on an episode of America’s Next Top Model (cycle 7) doing a workshop to teach the contestants about sexiness by means of burlesque dancing and posing. In 2007 Von Teese performed at the adult entertainment event Erotica 07 in London alongside Italian rock noir band Belladonna.
