Dita Von Teese, the leading lady of burlesque these days, may want to watch her tassels: Latinas are taking over the art of striptease.
From New York to Los Angeles, pinups decked out in their finest Swarvoski corsets and towering stilettos are strutting on stages after the 9-5 grind. It’s not a reenactment of the Hollywood musical film from 2010. Rather, this is real burlesque, a seemingly forgotten theatrical spectacle. Not only is this steamy trend continuing to raise temperatures among ladies and gents, but more Latinas are now batting their fake eyelashes, pouting red hot lips, and showing off sparkling pasties, leaving little to the imagination and impacting a movement throughout the country.
