Opium on Film "Dandy-Pacha" (France; 1908-1918)

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!

More Gems from Casino De Paris

Why is it that I can't get enough of these hand-colored postcards of dancers from the Casino De Paris? Maybe because they inspire me to create.

To view a really nice page of them (listing the names of the dancers, too):
