Dita von Teese – the most famous burlesque performer of our time – continues to bring high-glamour striptease to the masses.

Dita is one of the most hardworking, meticulous women in the business. She controls every element of her performances – from the lighting and technical elements to the music, costume and aesthetic. So much time, dedication and effort goes into every detail, and the result is a highly polished spectacle of fantasy, flirtation and fun.

As well as her many performances and engagements in 2012, Dita launched a cosmetics range with Art Deco, created a second perfume, Rouge, and her lingerie and clothing collections launched in a number of new locations. Click here for more information on all of her brands and products. She was also transformed into a magical hologram, which was created for the Design Museum’s Christian Louboutin exhibition in London.

Dita was at her most opulent and spectacular in the 2012 tour of her hugely successful show, Strip Strip Hooray!, which also starred Dirty Martini, Perle Noire, Murray Hill as host, and her long time friend and collaborator Catherine D’Lish. (I published a special 2012 interview with Dita and Catherine that discusses their amazing partnership; you can read it here…)  The show goes on the road again this year (2013), starting with dates in LA and New York, and you can visit the links below to find out more.

I can only imagine what Dita will deliver in 2013, but I always look forward to finding out…
