Famed photographer Sheryl Nields brings burlesque superstar Dita Von Teese to life in a series of flip books that capture the dancer's most intimate performances. A perfect collectible book for fans of Dita, classic burlesque devotees, or for anyone who loves a playful and beautifully packaged book, "Dita: Striptease" is an exquisite visual tribute to this one-of-a-kind performer, featuring three of her most beloved dances. Martini Glass Show - Performed all over the world, the martini glass show is Dita's most famous burlesque act. Featuring her in her 'Diamonds in the Buff' costume, Dita performs a traditional striptease that culminates with her bathing herself in an oversize martini glass, complete with olive sponge. Bird of Paradise Show - Inside a posh gilded Victorian birdcage, burlesque's brightest star reinvents the classic feather fan dance with two lush oversize feather fans of exotic, rare magenta pheasant feathers. In an extraordinary costume of beautifully curved feathers, Dita spins around on her golden perch, and treats audiences to an unforgettable wet and wild finale as sparkling water showers over her body. Classic Striptease - This striptease features Dita dressed in a vintage suit complete with a veiled hat, seamed stockings, and sky-high stilettos. Audiences get a glimpse into Dita's personal wardrobe - and what she reveals underneath it! http://www.youtube.com/youritlist#p/a/u/0/ii6LgwAx2Lc

Review:

"A highlight of Art Basel Miami Beach.Von Teese mounted a stage. in a pool at the Delano Hotel and did one of her signature burlesque shows, a coy striptease that left her naked except for [pink crystal panties] and pasties, straddling a giant lipstick that bucked like a mechanical bull." --New York Times

About the Author:

Dita Von Teese, the undisputed Queen of Burlesque and author of BURLESQUE AND THE ART OF THE TEESE/FETISH AND THE ART OF THE TEESE, 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 Cointreau, Louis Vuitton, Christian Louboutin, Marc Jacobs, and Roland Mouret. Well known for her elaborate props and costumes, Dita is in demand throughout the United States, as well as in the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Russia, and Hong Kong. The work of celebrity portraitist Sheryl Nields represents fifteen years of perfectly controlled chaos. From her earliest published work to recent commissions for Esquire, Harper's, Flaunt, Interview, Premiere, Arena UK,and Elle, each of Sheryl Nields's images-from the intense to the spontaneous-dissolves the barriers between artist and subject. She's shot dozens of top people in Hollywood and the music world. A graduate of Parsons School of Design, she further shaped her creative vision as an assistant to both Patrick Demarchelier and Stephane Sednaoui.
