Vogue magazine named her the queen of the burlesque revival, and Vanity Fair calls her a burlesque superheroine. She's integral to the underground fetish scene, yet she's front and center at every buzzed-about fashion show. Today's Bettie Page has transcended such cultural barriers with her astonishing grace, class, and artistry. This timeless vintage portfolio shows Dita von Teese when her rise to celebrity status was just a heartbeat away. Revealing a side to Dita that is well-known to the public, this book explores her fetish for corsets (she has more than 100 tailor-made ones) and her fetish for shoes (“I never leave home without my high heels on”), as well as other fetishes such as bondage and latex. The stunning front cover image of the 25th issue of Marquis magazine is included, featuring Dita painted from top to toe in silver. These stylish, sultry images are a fitting tribute to the early modeling days of a truly smart and sexy icon.

On one side, Dita Von Teese shares the beauty of the burlesque world, with bubblegum dreams and show tunes to strip to. Flip over for fantasies in fetish with dramatic costumes and the allure of submission. Burlesque and the Art of the Teese "I advocate glamour. Every day. Every minute." I'm a good dancer and a nice girl, but I'm a great showgirl. I sell, in a word, magic. Burlesque is a world of illusion and dreams and of course, the striptease. Whether I am bathing in my martini glass, riding my sparkling carousel horse, or emerging from my giant gold powder compact, I live out my most glamorous fantasies by bringing nostalgic imagery to life. Let me show you my world of gorgeous pin-ups, tantalizing stripteases, and femmes fatales. I'll give you a glimpse into my life, but a lady never reveals all. Fetish and the Art of the Teese You may have come for the fetish. Or you may just be sneaking a peek at this mysterious and peculiar other side. No matter what you've come for, there is something for you to indulge in. My world of fetish may not be the one that you would expect. As a burlesque performer, I entice my audience, bringing their minds closer and closer to sex and then -- as good temptress must -- snatching it away. As a fetish star, I apply the same techniques. . . . An opera-length kid leather glove, a strict wasp waist, an impossibly high patent leather heel, a severely painted red lip. . . . Come with me into my world of decadent fetishism.

Celebrity make-up artist Gary Cockerill is best known for his glamorous, sultry make-up style. Much in demand for his ability to make women look and feel fabulous, he regularly travels the world to get clients ready for red-carpet events, photoshoots and television appearances. In Simply Glamorous, Gary proves that with a little knowledge and practice, everyone can use make-up to enhance or disguise so they feel confident in their appearance. He begins by demonstrating what he loves most about make-up: its ability to transform. By applying four different looks to one face, he shows how the same ‘blank canvas’ can be natural, sophisticated, glamorous or dramatic. He then presents 15 breathtaking makeovers on women of all ages, explaining step by step how to re-create the looks. Divided into ‘Face’, ‘Eyes’ and ‘Lips’, the transformations range from nude and natural – ‘Barely There’, ‘Sun-kissed Goddess’ and ‘Girl Next Door’ – to high octane glamour – ‘Showgirl’, ‘Bombshell’ and ‘Glamour Puss’. They illustrate every aspect of make-up, from contouring, to false eyelashes, to wearing colour, and include the iconic looks that Gary is always asked to create – the smoky eye, the fifties flick and the red lip. ‘Tutorials’ address key topics in greater detail, such as skincare, foundation, contouring and application techniques for eyes and lips. As a self-taught make-up artist, Gary works instinctively with amazing results. His approach is creative and painterly, and his teaching style is friendly and down-to-earth as he shows how glamorous make-up can be accessible to everyone. He may not always do things the conventional way, but his techniques are the result of more than 25 years spent working with women and men of all ages, ethnicities and styles. He knows what works and what looks good, and encourages everyone to have fun and experiment with make-up to make themselves look and feel beautiful and glamorous.

Liz Goldwyn's lifelong fascination with the inimitable glamour of classic burlesque inspired her to spend the past eight years corresponding with, visiting, interviewing, receiving striptease lessons from, and forming close relationships with the last generation of the great American burlesque queeens. Goldwyn invites us to step back into an era when the hourglass figure was in vogue and striptease was a true art form. Meet Betty "Ball of Fire" Rowland, who was known for her flaming red hair and bump–and–grind routines. (It turns out she once sued the author's grandfather, Samuel Goldwyn Jr., for using her stage name and costume in his Hollywood picture, Ball of Fire.) Meet Sherry Britton, who, with her long black hair and curvy, trim physique, was among the most stunning of the burlesque stars before Mayor LaGuardia outlawed burlesque in New York. Meet Zorita, whose sexually explicit "Consummation of the Wedding of the Snake" dance (performed with a live snake) and other daring performances earned her legendary status. Goldwyn draws back the curtain to reveal the personal journeys of yesteryear's icons of female sexuality and power, restoring their legacy to an age that has all but forgotten them–despite today's resurgence of burlesque.
