Get the Burlesque Look Without Knowing How to Sing or Dance!
You don't evenneedto actually seeBurlesque (although highly recommended for the semi-cheesy but deliriously fun dance routines) to tap into the movie's glitzy, showstopping style. Just one look at the trailer or any of the promotional posters around town and you've got your new going-out look on lockdown. Now, I know the style can seem a bit risque at first, but the trick is to boil it all down to the essentials: gold, sparkle (but not too much), a touch of silk that evokes the word boudoir instead of bedroom, and some traditional dancing shoes. Start with a flirty skirt and pair it with a delicate camisole. To tone things down, add a black tuxedo jacket on top and slip your feet into a pair of elegantly simple T-strap heels. Finish it all off with rhinestone jewelry and a swipe of red lipstick. See,Christina Aguilera is not the only one who can pull off an outfit worthy of an encore.
