Burlesque dancer, Miss Betsy Rose starred in a Cleopatra inspired photoshoot. We’re here to share our burlesque costume ideas for this updated, yet iconic style.

Burlesque Costume Ideas for Women

This year sees the 50th anniversary of the iconic Cleopatra motion picture starring Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. While Helena Bonham Carter and Dominic West are also starring in an upcoming biopic. We’re celebrating by sharing the secrets of this Miss Betsy Rose photoshoot.

Egyptian glamour is nothing new to burlesque outfits. The godess, Isis and her wings are a common sight in burlesque clubs. So, what better way to evoke classic showgirl style, Hollywood glamour and modern elegance than following Elizabeth Taylor and Miss Betsy Rose’s lead. Get the Cleopatra look for the stage, the boudoir or just for fun.

Get started with your burlesque beauty by trying some burlesque eye make-up. Add some bold blue to match the screen siren or update it a la Chanel’s Singapore Cruise this year. Ombré everything is also in in in! Get ombré lips with this two-tone metallic finish.

Toga Maxi Dress

They’re easy to slip on and more importantly to slip off. Maxi dresses are a dynamic dress style, from the beach to evening wear and they’re everywhere. Neta Efrati has created an amazing 70s maxi dress guaranteed to make any woman statuesque.

There’s so much choice so when in doubt go highstreet. Debenhams have a sleeveless and sleeved v-neck with a fitted waist.

Crown Jewels

Amanda Caroline made all the head pieces and supplied the fabulous jewellery for this photoshoot. She creates bespoke millinery and bridal headpieces alongside burlesque items and vintage jewellery.

A great place to hunt down one-off items of jewellery is vintage shops. Scarlet Rage Vintage is one of our favourites. Another is Burlique, the London burlesque boutique.

Statement Jewellery

Go big or go home. Mix and match your vintage pieces with some attention grabbing accessories. Baobab Tree Jewellery has created some wonderful Isis earrings. Add this surprisingly affordable Marc Jacobs gold cuff bracelet. Then complete this burlesque outfit by snapping up a slithering snake gold bracelet.

Walk Like an Egyptian

Take a step on the Egyptian side with some strappy gold sandals. For foot bling you can check out Debehams again with their sparkly heels.
