There may be more skillful burlesque performers, but there are probably none better known than Dita Von Teese.
This is the second in our “Hotties of…” series; the first installment was Hotties of Rock – Grace Potter. The concept behind the series is to focus on female performers in various entertainment settings who are joyfully expressing their sexuality as part of their performing.
Dita, born Heather Renée Sweet on September 28, 1972, has become a modern day fashion icon. She is credited for bringing back the glamor and allure of Old Hollywood stars, and she is self-created and distinctive, and operates a commercial empire of various products and endorsements, in addition to her appearing and performing. She is also credited with popularizing the “New Burlesque” and leading the rejuvenation of that style of performing.
This following video clip is a 4 minute quasi-documentary including exclusive interviews, rare footages and live performances from the show she did in Paris at the prestigious Casino de Paris.
You might think it was taking coals to Newcastle for her to export the New Burlesque to France to help show French women how to take their clothes off American-style; but she went right on ahead and was a big hit in Paris. Here is a clip with some performance, some interview and some commentary on her in Paris to make several appearances at the famous Crazy Horse revue, (3:01), Dita Von Teese Brings Burlesque Revival to Paris,
But she also has a more varied background, more edgy than burlesque and fashion. She has been featured in Penthouse, and shot some really hot bondage and fetish images with A-list fetish photographer Ken Marcus (link to a Ken Marcus website gallery of Dita HERE).
As this next screenshot intimates, she did much more explicit work earlier in her career,
This is a clip of Dita getting fucked with a dildo high heel shoe that would make Lady Gaga swoon,
Next is what appears to be a mashup clip from a couple of Andrew Blake films – Dita in a three-way lesbian setup with Anita Blonde and Regina Hall, (4:59),
Speaking of Andrew Blake, HERE is a link to a short teaser video on his website of Dita in 40’s style lingerie getting gagged and tied up by two other hotties.
Last, check out the Galleries tab/page on the top menu for a gallery with more images of Dita that gets updated whenever I find good new ones.
