Burlesque is set to get even bigger later this year when Christina Aguilera and Cher’s much-talked about movie ‘Burlesque‘ hits the big screens. We’re already seeing an increase in Burlesque-inspired fashion – leather, feathers, lace, corsets and the like – and it all rather neatly coincides with spring/summer’s trend for underwear worn as outerwear.
Plenty of celebs are getting in on the act too: Lady Gaga with her vamped up Burlesque-rock look and music; Britney Spears – who has just been photographed for US-based junior clothing brand Candie’s new spring/summer 2010 ad campaign in a French burlesque-inspired pink dressing room decorated with feather boas and bouquets of flowers; and Immodesty Blaize – who is trailblazing a revival in Burlesque shows.
Here we’ve rounded up a few burlesque must-haves to mix and match into your wardrobe and help you get in on the action!
