Dita Von Teese: When Fantasy Comes To Fruition

ARCHIVED : From the [ sadly defunct ] LA Alternative Press : An interview with an individual who exemplifies the art of transformation. . .an act of poise and refinement pitched in a pronouncement as seismic as an earthquake. One in which dreams have been achieved — and in many cases, surpassed — through mastery of “being herself” — a brilliant amalgamation of person/persona.  ☆ Her Own Creation ☆

And Now For Further Enticement, In The Words Of Madam M:

“Join us on June 5th for steamy readings, cold drinks and lovely ladies performing burlesque for your titillation. In the old fashioned style of everyone’s favorite Dolly Parton flick, dress to the nines and get ready to be sauced and saucy.

All of the resident ‘whores’ are available for these sequestered readings at any time during the event. Of course, any good brothel need a furtive ‘front’ or cover; ours is part saloon and part salon, offering a full bar with music, burlesque dancing, fortune-tellers, and installations from our poets and other artists at each event. [In addition to the featured readers], each night we will also introduce several “New Girls”…[performers] who punctuate the evening with a few special public performances.”

Music provided by the ever spectacular Daniel Ribiat.

Featured visual artists: Joshua Burian Mohr and Zoetica Ebb

“The cornerstone of The Poetry Brothel is the event series. Bringing a new twist to the tradition of poetry reading, The Poetry Brothel showcases a diverse roster of emerging and established poets.

However, our events are also interactive performance art pieces based on the concept of the prewar brothels in the United States and Europe.”

Petker’s Paintings In Stiletto Pumps (or: The Catwalk-Stalking & Crowd-Gawking)

What? Like, You Thought I’d Forgotten Or Something?

No such luck.

I’m just a tease.

Wait–SCRATCH!    I’ve just been holding back to make this post “stand out from the pack.”

Yeah, that’s it…

Actually, since “L.A. Fashion Week” happened in various mutations this fall–What do we have now…three per season?  Can’t. Keep. Up.–I thought it might be nice to take a look back at runway shots from the

Gold vs. Petker

event

on 07/30/09.

Except this time?  I’ll do so with

Less gab; more GORGEOUNESS.

(How about that, then?)

From Miss Kitching, I intuit

a resounding “Yes, please!”

So…that being said, here’s

actor Daniel Franzese as he awaited patiently…

Burlesque bombshell Ava Garter, who

who set the stage for the show to kick off

(with a lethal stiletto, bless her heart!)

While

In the interim, “90210” hottie Annalynne

had a show of her own goin’ on,

as she waited front-row for her sister

The latest of ‘The McC Girls’ to stake her claim

as a media darling: Angel McCord ,

who conquered the catwalk like a pro…

O.K., some of you might recall my adulation over

Joshua Petker’s painting “Hunting for Witches” a while back?

(Be it yay or nay, here’s a reference for your ‘Quick & Easy’…)

Well, spot-check the detail of how it translated to fabric:

Mr. Gold’s stitch-witchery paired with Petker’s inimitable technique,

then ‘suited & booted’ by McCord’s searing Buffalo Stance?

Stellar.   Zenith.

S U B L I M E!

:: Smoocheroonies to you, Angel! ♥ ::

And on the tip of  ‘sublime,’

it’d be criminal of me to not include

one of the most adept catwalk-stalkers in Los Angeles,

(impeccably-manicured) hands’ down!

I’m talkin’ about

Amanda Fields of “Project Runway” infamy

Of course, a Jared Gold show wouldn’t be complete

Home Skillet’s “PAYIN’ IT FORWARD!”

It started with that darn Michael Buckley of the ‘What The Buck?!’ show…

He gave some love to my girl Deena Marie
:: channel name ‘beanerlarue’ on The Tubes ::

Who
passed the buck
(one could say)

&

Gave me my first shout-out on Ye Olde Y.T…
WOO WOO!


I’m incredibly grateful to be included with such a fab assortment of folks:

Vlogger Extraordinaire Bridget of the LilyLulay Show,

John Raymond Barker, also known as Jerby,

&

Tori/Torigirl35.

I Love Love Love Your Guts, Deena!

(& natch,

have plenty more to say…

but you’ll just have to wait until I–
well, you know…)
