Woman of the Week: Dita Von Teese

3 Jul

I was researching for this blog post about half an hour ago when I stumbled across something I hadn’t seen before. Originally, I was going to feature Christina Aguilera as my latest girl crush, but all of that changed when I clicked on this link:

Dita Von Teese – Guy What Takes His Time

I dare you to watch it. Better yet, I dare you to watch it without being encompassed by her beauty. Watch it without being mesmerised by her flawless make-up, her tiny waist and seriously sexy presence.

Dita Von Teese has been in the business since 1992 and is the biggest thing to hit the scene since Gypsy Rose Lee back in the 40s and 50s.

The more I learn about Ms. Teese the more I idolise her. Having taken her fascination with pin-up imagery and vintage lingerie and turned it into a world-renowned talent is impressive in itself – but now having brought burlesque back into the spotlight and making millions off the back of it, she is now entertainment of choice for high-brow events such as shows for Marc Jacobs, Christian Louboutin, Cartier and Louis Vuitton.

Currently in the midst of her ‘Strip Strip Hooray’ Summer tour in America, Dita’s perfect performances leave me wide-eyed and open-mouthed. You will often hear me say how there are certain women in the world that force me to question my sexuality – Rihanna, Beyoncé and Kim Kardashian have all left me in a similar quandary before – however there is no question when I watch Dita. She is the official girl crush.

The way she unties her corset to the beat, or rolls her stocking off within a blow of the sax, or how she catches you looking a little too closely – her stage presence is one of a kind. I can’t even take my bra off in a rush of an evening…

Off-stage, Dita comes across refreshingly humble. In an interview on ‘Loose Women’ in the UK she told host Andrea McLean that she does all her own hair and make-up and doesn’t even have a stylist:

“I have no stylist, I don’t use hair and make-up people, I don’t like to have an entourage at all.

When I was little I used to watch a lot of old movies with my mother…I come from a small town in Michigan and I’m a natural blonde. I always felt ordinary and boring.

I kind of like this idea of the big Hollywood make-over and I saw pictures of Marilyn Monroe when she was Norma Jean (Marilyn Monroe’s real name) but it’s totally different when they did all the make-up and the hair and the clothes…I like the idea of creating glamour.”

A girl after my own heart! There’s nothing like wearing a look differently than everybody else – it gives you a warm mix of confidence and anxiety, especially when you live in a small town where the rest of the community prefer the everyday comfort of leggings and jeans!

“Sexy, Funny & Shocking!”

11 Jun

Ladies, prepare yourselves!

Next month new film ‘Magic Mike’ is due for release and man! It is hot stuff…

*Tries to supress one’s excitement*

FIVE OF THE HOTTEST MEN IN THE BIZ ARE COMING TOGETHER FOR

MAGIC MIKE

*Queue half-naked pics of each starring hunk*

In order from top to bottom: Channing Tatum, Matthew McConaughey, Alex Pettyfer, Matt Bomer & Joe Manganiello

What really got me interested in this film (apart from my ridiculous man-crush on Tatum) is that it is based on the true story of Channing’s 19-year-old stripper self!

According to www.huffingtonpost.com in an item posted back in April, Tatum said in a statement, “This was a wild and pivotal time in my life and I couldn’t be more thrilled.”

Not only that but it is directed by Oscar-winner Steven Soderbergh (who produced Ocean’s Eleven) who says of the film; “I said I wanted in immediately. It’s sexy, funny and shocking.”

I bet you’re wondering how to drag your boyfriend along too, right?

Starring as Tatum’s love interest is Maxim cover-star and all-round babe, Olivia Munn!

So, there you have it! A movie with sexy stars, based on Channing Tatum’s real-life experience and all about the stripping biz. Boom! Your summer movie is sorted.
