Dirty Martini Burlesque Act @ "The Missy & Leyla Show"

Dirty Martini, performer and Burlesque girl turned Chanel~!
Karl Lagerfeld choose HER ( :D ) as one of the leading ladies. When the Jan./Feb. 2010 issue of V came out, most didn't know the history of this confident, voluptuous figure.

Although Karl is now supportive of Dirty Martini, he himself has a history behind curvaceous women, quoting "no one wants to see curvy women" and "you've got fat mothers with their bags of chips sitting in front of the television and saying that thin models are ugly." Shot in Chanel's house along with actress Jane Schmitt who once starred as Gabrielle Chanel in Lagerfeld's short films Paris-Shanghai: A Fantasy.
This is a photograph my mom took of Dirty Martini herself in NYC performing in 2002.
