Check out our run down of the stars who love burlesque;

The queen of quirkiness – Lady Gaga – is a well known lover of burlesque, starting out as performer in New York clubs and often incorporating erotic striptease into her concert routines. The singing superstar’s wardrobe is a virtual homage to burlesque, with a new age, neo burlesque twist.

Katy Perry has been papped many a time sporting a range of burlesque inspired retro hairstyles, whether in pastel pink or mint green, the California Gurls singer is rarely without her glamorous ringlets. Her red carpet appearances and gig get ups have also channeled a retro feel on many an occasion, evoking the Hollywood glamour style with a modern, quirky, Katy edge.

Hotel heiress and most famous of party girls, Paris Hilton, may be lacking in curves but more than makes up for it with her wardrobe – and confidence! The blonde ‘hot’ celeb chose the burlesque theme for her 30th Birthday bash, arriving in a bejewelled red corset and matching bustle. Miss Hilton has also performed in her own burlesque show at the famous Pussycat Lounge in Las Vegas, dancing and singing with a martini glass finale.

Pussycat Dolls Lead Singer/ X Factor Judge / Future Mrs Hamilton – Nicole Scherzinger oozes glamour and sex appeal with her stunning curves, amazonian dark hair and eyes, but does not come from a burlesque background like her girl band colleagues. The ‘one with the voice’ has embraced the burlesque genre many a time, giving all others a run for their money. Most memorable was her show-stopping performance in the burlesque themed ‘Watcha Think About That’ video strutting her stuff in a lavish underbust corset and matching jewelled bra. More recently the star donned a red latex corset, matching opera length burlesque gloves and black fishnet stockings to attend X Factor contestant Rylan’s Halloween themed birthday bash. Apparently she was supposed to be a vampire….?
