Burlesque Queen, Dita Von Teese, also famous for being romantically involved with none other than Marilyn Manson revealed her preferred corset maker earlier this year, admitting she gets a lot of help when it comes to choices and designs of corsets. It’s a given that this sexxxxy dancer has style, has impeccible make up and puts on a lot of class on her performances and really owns her style which is why we should all lurve her. From her hair down to the pearls that she wears, Dita’s flawless look is carefully fashioned and just like any fashion icons, she has a good designer that supported her. The corset designer who is the genius behind her corsets is none other than Mr. Pearl. Corsets designed by Mr. Peal have been bought by some of the biggest names in the industry.
Despite the nature of Dita Von Teese’s work she says she puts in a lot of effort when it comes to choosing a corset which she will use in numerous different shows. She told the media that she is absolutely blown away by the designs of Mr. Pearl’s work also saying her favourite item of his are the Freya strapless bras.
Mr. Pearl however is rather reclusive and hardly gets photographed at major events. He has created and designed beautiful lingerie and corsetry for the likes of Thierry Mugler.
So, personally, I’m not a fan of men in corsets however Mr Pearl seems to have that Victorian era about him and his appearance, so I guess its different strokes for different folks. No one can deny his talent for designing high-end corsetry for those that want it.
Since Burlesque, the movie came out being involved in new models portfolio making as a photographer and even a makeup artist, I’m a little bit over the whole Burlesque theme as a whole because since that movie made it out it has just been soooooo over done, in my opinion. Any “alternative” model I’ve worked with has at least one shoot in their portfolio with a “burlesque” theme. Maybe I’m just old and nasty, but thats just my opinion.
What do you think?
