Queen of Burlesque Dita Von Teese in Montreal
In the beauty community, Dita is well known for her flawless complexion, iconic red lips, winged liner and perfectly kept raven hair. That night was no exception. She exuded confidence, grace and just a total sense of mystery and intrigue. Seeing the infamous martini glass routine was more mesmerizing than I had expected.
Have you ever heard, “It’s not about the destination but the journey?” Well, she does her name justice, because she is a master at teasing the audience by only granting them brief glimpses of her body before the finale. It was impressive how effortlessly Dita Von Teese went about undoing her highly embellished gown or backtied corset. Furthermore, she is constantly aware of her silhouette, even walking on tip-toes after taking of her heels. Overall, sexy!
Unfortunately, photographs are not permitted during her performance and so I can only share red carpet photos. I’ll leave the rest to your imagination.
