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.… (mer)

O sea,

Onda que...

No sé, como que...

Yo...

Estoy como medio enamorada de Dita Von Teese.

Y, nada.

Eso nomás.

Some may see this book as purely as risque coffee table fodder. Others may try and use it as a manual for being like Dita von Teese. Most will just look at the pictures, I assume.

But this book is much deeper than it first appears. Importantly, it makes a point of exploring the two facets of the character of Dita (and she is a character, created like any fiction). Burlesque is currently fashionable, and that is the side of the Dita phenomenon that gets the most attention. But the fetish side is just as important, at least to Dita. By having both these facets in one book, you get the idea that sexuality and appeal has many sides to it. What is more, Dita shows that even if we take on a character or a persona, that character can be multi-faceted - Dita manages to be both cheesecake bombshell and dark domina.

This is actually quite liberating - which might surprise some. This is not a prescriptive 'to be alluring you must do x' type of book. Rather, it shows that allure can be found in almost any look, and it is really the attitude behind it that counts.

Oh, and there are lots of great pictures :) ( )

This is an oddly light weight fluffy book. It's written as a girly chat, and gives an odd, but interesting and engaging, mix of insights into Dita, fashion tips and the history of clothes, burlesque and the like.

Doubtless it won't be to everyone's taste, it deals with striptease, bondage and a pretty open (but light) chat about censorship, sexuality and the like, but I enjoyed it. ( )
