Here’s how to achieve the perfect vintage burlesque look in five easy steps.
1. Burlesque make-up
2. A glamorous retro inspired hairdo
3. A stunning corset and stockings
Try Coco de Mer, they don’t come cheap but they are worth every penny. Check out their stockings and lingerie to match your piece
4. A fabulous head piece
Try going for a statement piece. The more avant-garde and unusual, the better. Try the gorgeous ones from Coco de Mer too. If you are single and there’s no man to “gently coax”… you can always go for the ultimate fashion statement: The top hat. You can find great vintage ones on Ebay.
5. A basic burlesque class with a real burlesque star
You can have this one for free at London’s Moulin Rouge: The Wam Bam Club at Cafe de Paris. Free burlesque classes run every Saturday before the show.
