The shoes Christian Louboutin made especially for Dita's Opium Den show.
From Sept 7- 17, 2009 "Gentry de Paris Revue with Dita Von Teese" will be at the Casino de Paris - the birthplace of La Grande Revue - it's the first Revue in 50 years!
"Miss Gentry de Paris who not only wrote the show, stars in the show and is its creative director is on a mission to revive the Ziegfeld-follies in its purest form - with original song and dance production, a narrative storyline in two acts and 18 tableaux not to mention the lushest of lush costumes!" For an interview with Miss Gentry please read:
Anyone who reads my blog knows that I love the Casino De Paris vintage postcards, the Ziegfeld Follies and Steve Chasmar's flickr images. I am currently following Dita Von Teese on twitter as she tweets about her show LIVE at the Casino de Paris and tells us how uncomfortable her shoes are!

I saw the show last night. Dita was incredible! However, the rest was quite boring and not worth it. The show did not flow, the other artists were mediocre and the costumes were really not that great. Seeing Dita's two numbers live was really amazing but I would still say overall the show was a disappointment.

Dita is a great! The whole show was great! Anonymous must have been in a different theatre. The sets and costumes were dazzling!
