About the Author
Dita Von Teese is the brightest star in burlesque since Gypsy Rose Lee. As style icon and muse to artists, designers, and photographers, she has appeared on magazine covers and runways for Jean Paul Gaultier, Moschino, and Giambattista Valli, and is the performer of choice for Marc Jacobs, Christian Louboutin, and Louis Vuitton. Her DIY beauty ethos and entrepreneurial ventures—designing award-winning perfumes, lingerie, gloves, and clothes, and as directing producer on her touring stage extravaganzas—have established her as a role model to women. Her books include the bestseller Burlesque and the Art of the Teese/Fetish and the Art of the Teese and Dita: Stripteese. Dita and her feline, Aleister, live under the gaze of the star-viewing Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles.

My Mom went to modeling school so I had some knowledge of these old actress and stuff.
Most times you get a book like this it's a few well taken pics and articles any one can find on the web.
Not here !
For a person who did not write journalism for a living. Dita could teach a number of them about research and writing !
The writing fit the book . It was well written for anyone to enjoyable read and her work ethic also shows in the photos . Those of us who watched Creature Feature will love the 50s page movie type photo. Only wish for a few more ...see it an you will think old movies like Them, Blob ,etc .
I bought the book because I have an admiration for Dita and I've always loved the pin up and burlesque style and I was overjoyed when I opened up the pages! The book is deliciously narrated by Dita with a peek inside history, costumes, corsets, stories of the good old days, her attachment to the style since she was a girl and many more gems. The photography is well done and she gives tips and styles to become one with the cheesecake burlesque style and a fetish style. The fetish side of the book turned out to be my favorite of the two. Dita made it so simple to see how fetish has grown into a chamelion of sorts and it's not all about whips and gags, it can be about sky high heels and rubber outfits! There is more a desire to be the damsel in destress and not all punnishment (although it is encouraged as long as it doesn't harm you!)
I reccomend this book to anyone who is interested in the culture and lifestyle that Dita is keeping alive! Drink it up!
