Last night, a few friends and I went to the Dita Von Teese Burlesque Show aptly named ‘Strip, Strip, Hooray’. She is the fashion, stripper-diva who struts across the stage with such confidence it was jaw dropping. It was like being back in the pin-up 50’s. A sexy, beautiful, fantasy. What struck me most was that she was clearly not stripping for men as an object of desire. In fact, there were more women in the crowd than men. She was stripping for the pure fun of it. For the sensual pleasure. She is a woman in control and her power is the comfort she feels in her body (and the whoops and hollers she elicits) . Time to put Pin-Up Power back on my canvas’!
