Dita Von Teese Ditches Skinny Models In Favour For The Curvy Girl For Her Lingerie

Time to head down under, but at least we’ll be heading down under in style and in the company of one of the finest Burlesque performers in recent years, Dita Von Teese. Now Von Teese has hit the headlines in Australia as she has outlawed skinny models in favour of the fuller figured girl to model her Von Follies range of lingerie.

“We gave a lot of models the axe for being too skinny… It’s important to me [that] we show curvaceous women and fuller-figured girls… Lingerie looks terrific on girls with shape.”

Now that is definitely something we have to agree with, and from the look of the models she made the right decision, and when Von Teese slips into some of her own range it just begs the question when will they be released over here? At this stage they are only available in Australian Target stores and online, but they expect to expand into other countries.

Von Teese’s Von Folliesrange will hark back to a vintage age and is based on her own collection of vintage underwear, “There are so many vintage lingerie pieces I love that I haven’t been able to find in all my years of collecting.  I wanted to design pieces that are tributes to my vintage obsessions, to make them beautiful and functional, while modernising them for everyday wear.”

We might not stock Von Teese’s range but we definitely have a fine range of corsets and underwear to give you that special burlesque look and make you feel like a million dollars.

From Honour to Hollywood

From Honour’s catwalk Esme went on to become a unique and tantalising burlesque and cabaret perfomer, appearing in a number of high-profile music videos and performing live at the Brit Awards.

Now the ravishing redhead is mixing with the A-Listers in LA and is frequently being snapped on the arm of leather and PVC lover Marilyn Manson. Esme joins the elite pool of Manson vixens, comprising of the infamous burlesqe queen Dita Von Teese and striking actress Evan Rachel Wood.

Miss Bianco, originally from Hertfordshire, has also hit our TV screens, starring as fiery red-haired harlot Ros in a number of episodes for HBO’s epic fantasy drama Game of Thrones.

No wonder Manson has got his claws into this delectable being.

Despite taking a back-seat from the limelight this year, Marilyn Manson is still regarded as a seminal goth-rock performer, attracting religious, sexual and political controversy everywhere he goes. His brutally raw and dark music videos, many the work of director and photographer Floria Sigismondi, remain potent to this day.

Our Company Director, Mandy Xereb, expresses her delight at the sensational ascendary of Esme Bianco, saying; ‘I’m over the moon to see that our former model Esme is catwalking down the streets of Hollywood and rubbing shoulders with the stars along the way. We are sure that the sexy seductress will continue her rise to stardom!’

We hope to continue to pave the way to Hollywood for our models.
