We love to add glamour to every aspect of our lives (and yours). This month, The Huffington Post gave us all kinds of inspo with how to become a pinup.
Then we were promised more inspiration from the first ever Grace Jones documentary. See Dazed for the scoop on Grace Jones – The Musical Of My Life.
As per usual, we’ve got our perfectly manicured finger on the pulse of all things lingerie. InStyle, for one, gave us the history of corsets.
The star of the new Cinderella movie, Sandy Powell, has also revealed to Elle what it’s really like to wear that corset. Not to mention, the Bluebella lingerie show on the London underground, according to Trend Hunter.
Finally the wonderful Man Repeller shared alternative uses for tit tape. We know we’ll be putting these to use.

This year has seen even more burlesque festivals and competitions and we love it. The Daily Xtra covered the Ottawa Burlesque Festival Sunday school that happened this month. Meanwhile, Miss Pinup New Zealand contestant, Bailey McCormack, shared her love of all things vintage with Stuff.
Closer to home, Hebdenbridge Today shared the return of sauciness and sequins for four days of fun. Likewise, we enjoyed a sneaky peek behind-the-scenes of The Neon Moon Cabaret and Burlesque Club (above) from Cambridge News. Just saying.
Burlesque dancers have also been making headlines by flying the flag for feminist burlesque. Essence Revealed spoke to Ebony about beauty, body and feminism.
The St. Cloud Times then reported on Tiana Otto aka. Scarlette Revolver the founder and producer of Carnivale Revolver. She spoke about the inclusiveness of the art form and how she performed pregnant (minus the fire-eating).
There’s also the ladies proving in burlesque there’s something for everyone. The Huffington Post shared the story of the world’s tallest burlesque dancer, Ricki Covette.
Friend of Burlexe and burlesque baker, Charlotte White revealed she will be sharing her culinary secrets in an upcoming webseries. See Bedford Today for more. We can’t wait!

Raven-haired burlesque queen, Dita Von Teese has been sharing her words of wisdom again this month. She told Popsugar about incorporating burlesque into the bedroom.
She also told Style about red lipstick, lingerie, and hating the word “selfie”. She then rocked The W, San Francisco, according to Haute Living. March, however, saw some diversification in her portfolio.
The New York Post shared that Dita is teaming up with Canyon Ranch, the health and wellness brand. She’ll be offering an exploration into sensuality, seduction, and female empowerment including classes in the art of modern burlesque. Where do we sign up!?
Plus, Dita Von Teese has appeared in another music video. She once again joined her friends Monarchy, much to our delight. You can read more on Dazed and watch the video here.
