Heavenly bodies, bodies in motion, and boys, boys, boys!

The gorgeous Dita Von Teese gets shy! Difficult to imagine, isn’t it? But in an interview for a daily newspaper, Dita, who is forty-one, said that “I am not always confident, I have all the same self-doubt.” If so, it certainly didn’t show in the photo-shoot for her new Sheer Witchery range.

Of course Dita’s always understood the role of lingerie in seduction and it’s a great idea to look at photos and videos of burlesque stars to see what they wear and how they accessorise it. Lingerie for burlesque performance has to move well and be flattering in a range of postures, so their styles and combinations generally work well for us at home too. Dita is famous for her elbow-length gloves, which add sophistication to the briefest outfit, and for the high-waisted knickers that flatter (and flatten) every tummy. If you want some of that vintage glamour charm, but aren’t too keen on ‘big girl knickers’ we recommend these Lise Charmel briefs which give the elevated effect but offer exciting straps rather than solid fabric – the best of both worlds!

Strictly Come Dancing is back! Everybody’s talking about ‘that dress’ and whether or not Tess Daly should sack her stylist, but our eyes were on Casualty star Patrick Robinson who performed a fabulous jive with Anya Garnis. We can’t wait to see Patrick get his top off at some point! We knew that Patrick was a fine actor from his time on Casualty and The Bill and at the Royal Shakespeare Company but the energy he brought to the dance floor was really impressive – more please! We weren’t so keen on Dave Myers’ bare chest but full marks to him for his bravery.

It’s seems like we feature Rihanna every week, doesn’t it? But she does just have the nicest undies and she’s not shy about showing them at all! This week she’s been leaking news of the video for Pour It Up, her new single, and instagram shows her in a white bob wig, pink eyebrows (yes really, more flaming-flamingo than Scouse-brow and it actually works, for her) and the prettiest sheer white teddy that we’ve seen for a long time.

And just for fun, although with a serious message underlying it, here’s the video from Rethink Breast Cancer that has been doing the rounds … we’ve had so many giggles as a result of sharing this with girlfriends but let’s remember, lingerie lovers, that our breasts are important and our men’s boobs matter too – breast cancer doesn’t just strike women and we all need to undertake this tlc.
