Vogue magazine named her the queen of the burlesque revival, and Vanity Fair calls her a burlesque superheroine. She's integral to the underground fetish scene, yet she's front and center at every buzzed-about fashion show. Today's Bettie Page has transcended such cultural barriers with her astonishing grace, class, and artistry. This timeless vintage portfolio shows Dita von Teese when her rise to celebrity status was just a heartbeat away. Revealing a side to Dita that is well-known to the public, this book explores her fetish for corsets (she has more than 100 tailor-made ones) and her fetish for shoes (“I never leave home without my high heels on”), as well as other fetishes such as bondage and latex. The stunning front cover image of the 25th issue of Marquis magazine is included, featuring Dita painted from top to toe in silver. These stylish, sultry images are a fitting tribute to the early modeling days of a truly smart and sexy icon.

"I want to be a living work of art."-- The Marchesa Luisa Casati During the first half of the twentieth century, the Marchesa Luisa Casati (1881-1957) was Europe's most notorious celebrity. Her extravagant lifestyle, eccentric personality, and scandalous escapades captivated and inspired some of the most influential artists of her time. She was painted by Boldini and Augustus John, sketched by Drian and Alastair, and photographed by Man Ray and Cecil Beaton, among others. Jean Cocteau praised her strange beauty; Jack Kerouac dedicated poems to her; Fortuny, Poiret, and Erte dressed her. She continues to inspire top designers today, including John Galliano and Karl Lagerfeld. The Marchesa Casati is a visual biography, telling Casati's captivating life story alongside the art and designs she has inspired, featuring 200 images covering her lifetime and beyond. Personal family momentos, paintings, sculptures, and photographs, some never before seen, illustrate the artistic and cultural legacy she left behind. Runway images, sketches, and advertorials show her continuing impact on the present-day fashion community. "The Marchesa Casati: Portraits of a Muse explores Casati's heart and soul. It's a wonderfully complete portrait of a style icon, during her life and afterward, lavishly illustrated with more than 200 images, including personal mementos, and the art and designs she has inspired even today." –Booth Moore, Los Angeles Times, September 13, 2009 "The story of the Marchesa Luisa Casati's life resembles a fable for our times. Ryersson and Yaccarino present a compelling collection of images to tell the story of Italy's richest heiress at turn of the last century, whose married aristocratic life and progeny were cast aside to indulge in a dramatically theatrical existence...She emerges a heroine, living the fantasy, all the way to the end." –Glass Magazine "With incredible passion for the Marchesa Casati, Scot D. Ryersson and Michael Orlando Yaccarino have worked tirelessly to create a stunning homage and a visual biography to this legendary woman who continues to inspire fashion and style." --Diane von Furstenberg

Since 1999, the Guatemalan performance artist Regina José Galindo (born 1974) has drawn attention to her native country's oppression of women and the poor by activating her body as a site for collective inscription. Several of her performances are extreme exercises in the deprivation of dignity: she has been publicly stunned with an electroshock gun and "cleansed" with a power hose; she once commissioned a plastic surgeon to locate the imperfections on her naked body in public with a marker. In Guatemala, these actions are not so easily assigned to the symbolic realm: in a 2005 interview Galindo said, "As Guatemalans, we know how to decipher any image of pain, because we have seen it all up close." This volume surveys all of Regina José Galindo's works in performance and video from 2006 to 2010.

If the burlesque stripper, with her bawdy spirit and unruly insubordination, has emerged for many as a new 'empowering' model for the sexually aware woman, then she also strikes horror in the heard of second wave feminism. Embodied by high profile artists such as Dita von Teese and Catherine d'Lish, the explosive revival of striptease, burlesque and overt female sexual performance has proved no less alluring to a new generation women artists familiar with the provocative work of 70's performance artists such as Hannah Wikle and Carolee Schneeman. Eloquent on 'prettiness' and power, desire and 'knowingness', money, sex and class, and with an extensive knowledge of burlesque's rich tradition, Wilson raises long overdue questions about women's erotic expression within a 'postfeminist' condition. The 'new burlesque' demands about all a response--this fresh, brazen, provocative book at last provides it.

Glamour is one of the most tantalizing and bewitching aspects of contemporary culture - but also one of the most elusive. The aura of celebrity, the style of the fashion world, the vanity of the rich and beautiful, and the publicity-driven rites of café society are all imbued with its irresistible magnetism. But what exactly is glamour? Where does it come from? How old is it? And can anyone quite capture its magic? Stephen Gundle answers all these questions and more in this first ever history of the phenomenon, from Paris in the tumultuous final decades of the eighteenth century through to Hollywood, New York, and Monte Carlo in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, from Napoleon to Marlene Dietrich and Marilyn Monroe, from Beau Brummell to Gianni Versace. Throughout, the book captures the excitement and sex appeal of glamour while exposing its mechanisms and exploring its sleazy and sometimes tragic underside. As Gundle shows, while glamour is exciting and magnetic, its promise is ultimately an illusion that can only ever be partially fulfilled.

Looking at modern contemporary Italian literature, this book presents a study of authors who choose to write their narratives or poems from the sensitivity and sensibility of the opposite sex, and thus metaphorically try to penetrate and possess the body and psyche of the opposite sex, whether it be for political, provoking or literary reasons.
