KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 25, 2014:
Burlesque has arrived on Malaysian soil!
Renowned “Queen of Burlesque” Dita Von Teese was in town recently to have a taste of Malaysia and at the same time tease local burlesque fans.
Despite uploading images of her Malaysian trip on to her Instagram account, the dancer, model and actress’ trip was discreet and she kept a low profile.
“Greetings from Kuala Lumpur! I might have to try this eggshell idea in my garden at home,” read a description of an image of a local plant, believed to be a sansevieria trifasciata, or commonly known as mother in-law’s tongue, pierced with eggshells, on her Instagram and Facebook account.
The image led several of her fans to ask the 42-year-old on the reason behind the eggshells being placed at the tip of the plant’s leaves, providing fans an opportunity to enlighten her.
“Sweetie, the eggshell is a tradition to keep the bad vibes away from a place like house or church, it’s also common to see a red ribbon around it to keep the bad vibes away,” Samantha Pulido commented.
Von Teese also posed at the stairs of a Malay traditional house in a black floral vintage dress with the words, “Tourist day in Malaysia today”.
This was followed by another picture of her in a white floral dress uploaded yesterday, where Von Teese posed elegantly on a peach-colored leather sofa, exuding her well known “burlesque” persona at a dinner event organised by a luxury jeweller.
Von Teese, who has appeared in films and music clips along with various fashion campaign, has remained tight-lipped on the duration of her stay in Malaysia.
