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.

Dita Von Teese, the undisputed Queen of Burlesque, has appeared in Vanity Fair, Vogue, Elle, Playboy, and international issues of nearly every fashion magazine. Dita has performed at events ranging from Elton John's Life Ball and the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show to exclusive parties for Louis Vuitton, Christian Louboutin, Marc Jacobs...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Book I'm a fan of Dita and her style. The book has lots of beautiful pictures and is very well written. I initially thought the price was high for $40, but it is worth the price as does have lots of content at over 300 pages and is hardcover.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "A Burlesque Lovers Must" Filled with quirk and history, Dita takes you on a brilliant trip through her personal love for glamour, the exquisite, the classic and the tempting. Lush and gorgeous photos don the pages as the burlesque star reveals her knowledge of the art and how she got to where she is today; without revealing too much, of course - after all she is a lady. It is a sumptuous journey sure to delight all whom follow fetish, burlesque, or just sheer indulgence for the body and soul - from time to time, or otherwise. So sit back and take in a lil' splendor. This is a swanky prize you wont want to miss.
