Top Ten Burlesque Artists - Girls Just Wanna Have Fun!

Post by andrew666 on Mon Nov 29, 2010 8:07 pm

With the launch of the surprisingly good Christina Aguilera / Cher movie Burlesque, I thought it might be interesting to review the history of this scene with its close links to jive and rockabilly. Here are some of the key personalities in the genre:

1) Tempest Storm had her pair-fect assets insured for $1m at Lloyds of London and even at 82 can still be sometimes persuaded to take the stage:



2) Lili St Cyr was famous for her range of underwear and was known as the anatomic bomb:



3) Blaze Starr had the gimmick of sitting on a sofa and it would burst into flames around her:



4) Bettie Page - became an icon for generations.....and generations.....



5) Dita Von Teese - she puts the tease back into striptease!



6) Wau Wau Sisters - Bring fun and frivolity to all that they do:



7) Suicide Girls - psychobilly girls gone wild:



Cool Kitten DeVille - Californian lady with class - she oughtta be in the movies:



9) Miss Dirty Martini - classic burlesque and voluptuous fun:



10) Miss Polly Rae - top UK burlesque:
