On the Street….The Burlesque Dancer, Milano

I am really starting to believe that the most stylish performers are burlesque dancers. This is also the second girl in a row whose posture speaks volumes about who she is and how she wants to be perceived.

    I love the shoes and shades. Her skirt reminds me of Micky Mouse shorts, which it was probably inspired by.

    She does have the grace of a dancer.

    The polo shirt is an interesting, traditional choice to go with the short red skirt.

    Great point, Sart–posture is a key component in visual self-construction, and it makes my heart happy to see women projecting confidence and owning the space they occupy, as it were. Thanks for regularly showing women who resist the current trend toward slump-shouldered, knock-kneed, pseudo-demure self-diminishment–there's nothing "cute" about a grown women presenting herself like a tempermental kindergartener who needs to pee!

    Plus, strong posture makes breasts look great. This woman is walking sex. I'm surprised you found her in Milan, of all places.

    Love how there is a subtle and quirky seaside Minnie Mouseishness to the outfit too. Posture is key to pulling off good outfits, and therefore dancers have this in abundance!

    It is perhaps because they are, uniquely, most unafraid to express their style and to be judged. Their profession depends on them believing in their own beauty so that inevitably translates into personal style. She looks beautiful, the hair, the lips: amazing.

    I find it very inspiring when I see photos of beautiful and well-dressed girls with similar dimensions to myself. All too often the women snapped on street style blogs are the polar opposite to me so I have a bad habit of dismissing their outfits as suitable only for that body shape.

    Great confidence in both her pose and wardrobe selection. The extra-long placket and nipped in waist are really very flattering. What I can't decide is if the Mickey Mouse skirt is a wry wink or just kitsch. Perhaps it doesn't matter.

    People should definitely check out a burlesque show near them! Very fun and always a great show. People watching in the audience can compete with the actual show on stage which is pretty tough. Ever competed with a beautiful woman in a giant champagne glass?

    Her posture is fabulous, and oddly, reminds me of my mother's posture as she stood on the tarmac, hatbox in hand, as a debutante visiting Hawaii. The vintage photo I sent in, in other words:). Young women in a moment of confidence of full flush of something.


    May 26, 2010 at 9:17 am

    I LOVE it! Burlesque dancers have such a femininity about them.

    The subtle way her tattoo sticks out under her skirt is so adorable.

    I just LOVE it. Thank you for this.

    Wow! I bet she is a showstopper on stage. I like the contrast of the red on her pale skin and the tattoo peaking out from the bottom of her skirt. She must be used to hearing screeching brakes and car crashes behind her.

    she's an old salt in a young dancer's body. the sailor jerry style tattoos along with her deck shoes and polo are genius.

    She looks like a piece of art! As a lot of burlesque dancers do. I love tattoos on women, its all about how to carry them, they show that someone is confident enough to wear them, and that you stand behind your body. I really love this woman, one of the most interesting picture in your blog. I just love the pinup style combined with that shirt and those shoes.

    From the neck up it's interesting, her dispostion as well but as for the outfit and whole look in general, I'm not digging it at all. Especially the tattoos and the weird mismatchy/random pairing of everything. Like a floral bag tote with moccassin shoes and preppy Lacoste top…I don't know, it just doesn't work for me.

    Her posture also makes it so that her garter tattoo just barely peeks out from under her skirt. Hardly an accident I think. She's very self-aware.

    My father's fifth wife was a burlesque dancer and it is true that she very carefully constructed her image. At 50+ she was no longer wearing outfits like this one, but she still maintained an aura of intention. There is much to be learned there.

    This blog is full of contrasts. Yesterday's photo with the girl in the white dress was absolutely stunning, lovely and sweet. Today's girl with the tight shirt, tattoos and sunglasses is in every way the opposite. She is original, that's the only thing that speaks for her but I don't like it.

    God she is just darling. I'm in love with the Minnie Mouse skirt…and quite curious as to whether she bought it as a Minnie Mouse skirt or made/modified it. I like that nothing looks particularly expensive, just perfect for her.

    To Sart – I don't know if there are enough for this to make sense, but personally I would LOVE it if you had a category of photos of performers. Every time you label a pic "The Burlesque Dancer," "The Dancer," etc, the photo always has something particularly evocative about it to me. Just sayin'.

    Am I the only one who has seen an outfit like this about a million times? This is a textbook Suicide-Girls/modern burlesquelook –Betty Pag e+ tattoos + dressing like a cartoon character. The red lipstick, black nails, overplucked eyebrows (I presume, though I can't really see them here) , and worst of all the thigh tattoo. . . to me it just looks unnot at all attractive, sorry. And thigh tattoos just don't do it for me.

    On a positive note, I do love the sunglasses!

    Those glasses. Her rouged cheeks. That cocked hip. Her attitude speaks volumes. She is completely aware of herself. Alive.

I'm sure she doesn't get to wear flats to work :)

    It takes some confidence and originality to pull off rockabilly style and she does it well.

    Rockabilly can turn tacky and generic really fast if you go for obvious choices.
