Pop star, Christina Aguilera is currently filming her acting debut in the up and coming film, Burlesque, a contempary muscial-film directed by Steve Antin.
Ali (Christina Aguilera) is a small-town girl with a big voice who escapes hardship and an uncertain future to follow her dreams to Los Angeles. After stumbling upon The Burlesque Lounge, a majestic but ailing theater that is home to an inspired musical revue, Ali lands a job as a cocktail waitress from Tess (Cher), the club’s proprietor and headliner. Burlesque’s outrageous costumes and bold choreography enrapture the young ingenue, who vows to perform there one day.
Soon enough, Ali builds a friendship with a featured dancer (Julianne Hough), finds an enemy in a troubled, jealous performer (Kristen Bell), and garners the affection of Jack (Cam Gigandet), a bartender and fellow musician. With the help of a sharp-witted stage manager (Stanley Tucci) and gender-bending host (Alan Cumming), Ali makes her way from the bar to the stage. Her spectacular voice restores The Burlesque Lounge to its former glory, though not before a charismatic entrepreneur (Eric Dane) arrives with an enticing proposal.
Sheryl Nields, a famous photographer brings burlesque superstar Dita Von Teese to life in a series of flip books that capture the dancer’s most intimate performances. A perfect gift for any hardcore Dita fans but also anyone, like me, who is just generally a lover of anything burlesque. “Dita: Striptease” is an exciting tribute to this one-of-a-kind performer, featuring three of her most loved dance routines.
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!

Since glamourpuss Megan Fox came on the scene all I can notice is her lusious locks and teeny tiny waist, made even smaller by her corset costume whilst filming Jonah Hex. She looked even cooler when shot for Wonderland Magazine’s September issue. Take a look at these gorgeously shot pieces, could her waist get any smaller. Think my eyes are turning a certainly shade of green 🙂
