I have a new obsession. Burlesque shows.
Last weekend hubby and I went to the Nouvelle Burlesque Review in Dallas and fell head over heels in lust. Times three. Lord, have mercy.
I’ve been to a couple of burlesque shows in the past. In fact, my parents took me to my first one in Vegas (Follies Bergere at the Tropicana) years ago during my 21st birthday celebration weekend. You read that right. I had a friend with me as well, so it wasn’t like it was just me and my parents. But I’d never seen so many bare breasts in all my life (other than the pasties). It was fascinating and seemed so sensual and artistic; several steps up from your average strip club performances.
The other one I attended with Rick maybe three years ago. Again, had a great time, as he is a boob man and pretty much has turned me into a boob girl myself, in terms of playmate preference. But I digress…
So the Nouvelle Burlesque Review was my third show. They say third time’s a charm and WOW, did that cliché ring true.
La Divina Productions, the show’s creator, has assembled the most beautiful dancers in the world. After the show, Rick and I came away with three favorites, to whom I’ll gladly give a little free publicity as my humble way of saying, “thank you” for stocking my mental Rolodex with some hot, hi-def memories. Although our phone cameras didn’t really do them justice, (I just used the one we had of Minxie; the others are from the official websites) so you might want to check out their links for more pics. And, no, they’re not paying me anything to write this.
La Divina is an exotic beauty with smokin’ hot curves. La Divina has been a burlesque performer in the Dallas area for three and a half years. After performing in numerous smoky dive bars, ultra lounges, casinos and restaurants, she and a partner formed La Divina Productions with the goal to bring the highest quality level of entertainment to Dallas. Mission accomplished.
Blaze –The Red Rose of Texas is another remarkable beauty. She is also a costume designer and a military veterant, – a multi-talented lady!
Rick and I decided Minxie Mimieux is our new girl crush. She’s just 21 years old, so we might be robbing the cradle a bit, but she might be the most beautiful redhead we’ve seen, with the most amazing body. She has definitely earned the right to stand next to Christina Hendricks on our mantle of redhead girl crushes.
One thing I never noticed about Burlesque, is that there are few blondes who perform in this medium. Most of the ones I’ve seen are either redheads or brunettes of some degree. I appreciate that La Divina Productions celebrates redheads, whether they’re natural or not.
Another great thing about this medium is that curves are welcomed and celebrated, and I was so inspired after watching this show the other night that I’ve been looking online for burlesque classes around town.
If you ever have a chance to attend a burlesque review, DO IT! These shows celebrate beautiful women in a tasteful, sexy and romantic way. In fact, I should have added my suggestion to see a show to my earlier posting about “How to get your lady in the mood” a few days ago, because ladies, you can’t help but come away from a show like that feeling kinda horny and happy.
Have you been to a Burlesque performance? Do you have a favorite dancer?
