Dita Von Teese to perform striptease at Paris revue

Burlesque star Dita Von Teese is set to take the French audiences by storm as she returns to perform striptease at Paris' most famous nude revue.

The 36-year-old star has been booked in for a two-week run at the Crazy Horse in the French capital, where she also plans to show off musical skills.

"I feel that Paris is a place that still appreciates its showgirls. I feel I have to raise the bar," The Sun quoted her as saying.

"I've always had a real fascination with the Crazy Horse ever since I was a teenager and I found a picture of this line of nearly nude toy soldiers standing at attention. (I want to) combine the Crazy Horse style with what I do, which is classic American burlesque," she added.

Von Tesse will be performing at the songs she has recorded. The show will begin on February 1 and run through to Valentine's Day.
