Mel B's Burlesque Debut

MEL B Burlesque
Mel B is the latest star to ruffle feathers in a burlesque style, posing in sexy Ultimo shots that could have come straight from the Moulin Rouge.

Last month Girls Aloud teased the Brit Awards audience with huge feathers, waist-cinching corsets and eyelashes longer than Nadine Coyle’s legs.

And singer Katy Perry, Paris Hilton and even Blue Peter goody-two-shoes Zoe Salmon have all been stepping out in striptease style with va-va-voom outfits.

They’ve shown that being sexy isn’t about letting it all hang out. Instead, they’re embracing their curves, celebrating sauciness and going girlie.

Mel, who makes her debut in a Las Vegas spectacular called Peepshow next month, says:

“Burlesque is all about embracing and celebrating your body. A girl’s gotta have great lingerie, but it’s also all about the wink and the tease that goes with it!”

It’s girl power all over again and Britain’s women — and fellas — can’t get enough.

Having achieved mainstream status in the US, burlesque’s cheeky take on the striptease is captivating the UK. Titillating dance classes are springing up from Widnes to Wapping, girls are donning their glad rags for dinner dances at revue bars and the market for burlesque-themed hen parties is soaring.
