Catherine D’Lish

(Miss Exotic World 1992 and 1994)

“Catherine is one of life’s guilty pleasures; you can watch her over and over again, and always feel as though something intimate and personal has passed between you. For the duration, you are the only one in the room, and she’s doing it just for you…”

Holli-Mae Johnson

How much more can we say that we haven’t said before, about someone who is consistently outstanding? A master of their craft – instinctively, effortlessly and luxuriously seductive and skillful.

Catherine has had a busy and varied 2010. She featured in Burlesque Undressed – Immodesty Blaize’ excellent documentary film, released in early 2010; she thrilled the crowd at Viva las Vegas 13; performed with her fellow Queens of Burlesque in March at Le Poisson Rouge, NY; headlined at The London Burlesque Festival in April; sizzled at BHoF in June; blew our minds at The New Orleans Burlesque Festival, and enjoyed an incredible run in Madrid and Bilbao.

Offstage, she continues to make beautiful and elaborate costumes and accessories, and we have been told to anticipate some stunning new ensembles in 2011!

  1. I love this woman! What a performer and innovator, the best costumes she makes by her own hand and the choreographer of many Dita Von Teese routines. Catherine is D’ Lish!
