Gypsy Rose Lee and Dita Von Teese: Fabulous Forces of Burlesque

 

 

 

I have always loved the art of Burlesque and how it titillates the senses. And when the word Burlesque is said, two very prominent names come to mind; Gypsy Rose Lee and Dita Von Teese! These fabulous women are known for their wit, their beauty, and most importantly their style.

 

 

dec_border

Rose Louise Hovick, better known as Gypsy Rose Lee, joined the ranks of burlesque after a grueling childhood career in vaudeville with her talented siblings and her controlling stage mother, Mama Rose. Burlesque was her way of breaking from her past and embrace a form of entertainment that really brought her true essence to life. She also changed it in ways one would never imagine with her sharp wit and her expensive couture taste that dazzled the world over. She has been immortalized in the theater with the award-winning show Gypsy and literature with not only her own best selling novels and memories but literally hundreds of different pieces written in her honor. The show Gypsy has also been made into several different film renditions as well as appearing herself in many movies and TV shows. The best of all is grande modern burlesque shows, one most famously done by Dita Von Teese, all honoring how forever fabulous she is!

Here are some inspirational fashions from the ever enchanting Gypsy Rose Lee!

Heather Sweet, know the world over as Dita Von Teese, was a small town ballerina with bigger than life dreams of glory through glamor. She yearned for the old world existence of her role models from vintage Hollywood and the elegance the exuded. The moment she stepped into the big city there was no stopping her. She reinvented herself in the world of fetish modeling, often drawing inspiration from women like Bettie Page. Then she does it once more by reigniting the world of Burlesque, drawing from the only inspiration to draw from; Gypsy Rose Lee! She has since launched various different clothing, lingerie, hair, and makeup collections along with appearing in many movies, music videos as well as being a best selling author. She is truly an unstoppable woman!

Sexy Accessories | San Jose San Francisco Bay Area Boudoir Photography

 

When doing a boudoir photo shoot keep it unique and keep it about you. It’s time for that sexy side to sizzle. The best way to do that is through accessories, but you never want to over accessorize simply because IT’S ALL ABOUT YOU!! There are so many fun ways to do this that will not take away from that perfect shot!

Let’s go from top to bottom!

dec_border

 

Hats are a great start. Often times you can play with a lot of different close-up shots. And there is a hat for every look and every type. Everything from a big Hollywood glamor look to a rustic cowgirl look, you’d be surprised about its versatility.

dec_border

 

 

Now, personally, I am not a hat person. I’m not the only one either. But I can’t help but love a good headpiece of some kind. A great flapper style headband adorned with ornate fabrics and designs is one option that will enhance every picture.

dec_border

 

Tiaras and different bejeweled hair accessories are essential for the perfect boudoir bridal photo. The tiara is best when worn with an elegant veil, but is just as stunning by itself to make your inner princess come to life.

dec_border

 

But I can’t resist just keeping it simple and sexy with flowers in the hair. You can have a single rose sitting delicately on one side or have an entire arrangement placed throughout your hair of any flower you wish.

dec_border

 

Make a statement with an alluring mask. Entice those who look to stare deep into your eyes and become mesmerized. Be as subtle or as decorative as you wish with this fanciful accessory.

dec_border

 

Chokers are the sexiest types of necklaces. It hugs the neck with elegant styles and materials that make this ever sensual part of your body look longer and more delicate.

dec_border

 

Pearls are as simple as can be along with being as sexy as ever. Pearls pair well with every boudoir outfit, but it is even more desirable when it stands alone. Wear it close to your neck like a choker, wrap it with layers around your neck, or wear them long as the pearls follow down the center of your body.

dec_border

 

Go big and rocker with various types of draped chain. Gold is another personal favorite and letting the layers drape long and proud down every curve is so sexy.

dec_border

 

One option, if you are not into a chain like I am but still want to make a big statement, is to go with big colorful beaded pieces. The more colorful the better!

dec_border

 

 

But who could resist a wonderful jewelry set being the only outfit you wear. Let your jewels inspire the sexy in you.

dec_border

 

 

And what better to match with your exquisite jewels than a stunning fluffy fur stole or fur coat. It can be faux or no, colorful or simple, and always soft to the touch.

dec_border

 

Add a silky touch of something extra sexy with a pair of luxurious gloves. With such choices as lace, chiffon or satin, how could you not look glamorous? Have them long and simple or short and decorative to show off a unique you.

dec_border

 

Fans are the most beguiling accessory and always makes for a fabulous photo. Even more so than then any hat, the fan can be a great prop for a captivating close-up like no other.

dec_border

 

Body chains are the sexiest trend in boudoir accessories and with as many styles as there are ways to wear them you can not go wrong. When used for a photo shoot it often highlights the most arousing features.

dec_border

 

Belts can also be a great addition to your choice of outfit. With a corset waist belt, you can cheat! You have the same classic look of a corset without having to lose your breath or deal with to many ties.

dec_border

 


Chain belts are another great way to enhance your outfit and give you an edgy look that snugs closely and enhances your racy side.

dec_border

 

 

Garters! Need I say more? And with so many styles to choose you can be anything from a blushing bride to subtle hints of s&m, however the mood strikes you.

dec_border

 

 

Stockings? What’s more risque than stockings held up with a classic garter belt? It’s that vintage look that will never go out of style because it is so perfect, especially for a boudoir shoot.

dec_border

 

You’re going to need one sexy pair of pumps to really make your stockings complete. Any color, any style and however high you want them is the best way to make your luscious legs reach to the stars.

dec_border

 

But it’s not the only way to make your legs look spectacular. Boots! The higher the thigh the better! Make them look even more scandalous by wearing only your boots during your session.

dec_border

 

 

From head to toe and everything in between, make sure the true sexy vixen that exists within every pearl clutching lady shines brighter than a diamond.

Who doesn’t love a good lingerie robe? It is not only soft and silky, but it is essential to complete your sexy boudoir look. And with so many different materials and colors to choose from mixing and matching make it that much more fun.

dec_border

 

Silk and satin are classic and smooth no matter the occasion. A trim of lace adds a delicate touch to your look. It hangs beautifully on every curve and allows for simple mobility to be simply sexy.

dec_border

 

Fur is fabulous and always soft to the skin. It is chic and sexy and begs to be touched often. When paired with chiffon the look achieves a certain elegance for your bedroom antics.

   

dec_border

Lace on every lady is luxurious. Satin, fur lined or not, full length or temptingly short? No matter what lace makes the occasion exquisite, the body more alluring and leaves the eyes wanting more.

dec_border

 

Floral prints are delicate, colorful and vibrant and ideal for such a personality. More amazing is how many fabrics and designs the floral print comes. Silk and lace with such styles as Japanese kimono and velvet embroidered there is no way to go wrong with such versatility.

dec_border

 

Cozy can be so sexy and you can’t have cozy without cotton. It’s perfect for mixing and matching with all styles, fabrics, and colors. Feel fuzzy and warm while feeling sensual. It will leave you never wanting to leave your bedroom.

From sexy to chic, furry to cozy, soft, smooth, silky and every inch lovely. Wrap beauty around you and embrace it from head to toe.

Very Velvety | Santa Cruz Los Gatos Bay Area Boudoir Photographer

 

When it comes to Valentine’s Day finding what to wear can be a hassle, especially when you’re the type that always thinks outside the box. For the biggest day of love satin and lace are your standard fabrics when choosing something very sexy. These fabrics are both fantastic for go-to sexytime lingerie. But you’re not into just those two choices. You’re more into mixing it up a bit or even going with an entirely different material altogether. VELVET!!!! Yes, Velvet!!

dec_border

 

Since velvet is so soft to the touch some ladies like to go for a color that is equally as soft. It makes it that much more irresistible. Lighter shades of pink achieve this effect perfectly.

dec_border

 

Burgundy accomplishes this soft sexy perfection despite its deep shade. As a matter of fact, to go deeper is to attain true seduction.

dec_border

 

Various shades of blue of course are vivacious and extremely enticing, but one of the most unlikely colors for Valentine’s Day. Despite not being a more commonly used color, it still achieves a soft and regal yet naughty look.

dec_border

 

Although purple is a less traditional color for the occasion it is the most regal of all colors. Wear the color of a Queen while captivating your King.

dec_border

But black is an absolute classic and goes with every color, every occasion and it is most flattering on every beautiful figure. As a little black dress is a must in each woman’s closet, so too should black velvet in every ladies lingerie drawer.

dec_border

 

To feel soft always remember that velvet is that perfect touch needed for your special Valentine’s Day.

Retro Glam | San Jose Bay Area Boudoir Photography

 

 

Vintage never goes out of style, especially in the boudoir. And capturing this sexy elegance in a photo is as old as photography itself. And to look sexy for your love is even older. As old as time. The evolution of these delicate undergarments have a long history, but styles are often repeated and made better through the ages. As times change and needs of the boudoir do, so to must lingerie.

dec_border

 

Victorians were not as stuck up as one would think. They knew how to have fun and dress for the occasion, even in private. For the modern Victorian look a touch of lace here, a neck-full of pearls there and a breathtaking corset is all you need

dec_border

 

By the 1920’s women were not only politically free but a little more sexually free and their less constricting often more revealing lingerie was a sign of the times. Even the music in the bedroom became more exciting with Jazz.

dec_border

 

As Hollywood grew in popularity so did the need for looking like a star in the bedroom. Even with WWII taking all the silk, that didn’t stop the ladies from wearing the most glamorous looks! (Thank You Nylon)

dec_border

 

 

Can you imagine the 1950’s being sexy? Well, the truth is some of the sexiest styles we still use today came from the 1950’s. It has become the most copied look for vintage lingerie.

 

dec_border

 

 

So if you feel like you were born in the wrong era…there’s lingerie for that!
