World-renowned for bathing in a giant cocktail glass, Burlesque’s brightest star Dita Von Teese collaborates with Swarovski on her most spectacular glass ever, the “Swarovski Martini.”

Von Teese debuted the “Swarovski Martini” to sold-out crowds at the Roxy Theatre on the Sunset Strip in Los Angeles, May 17th and 18th.

For Release: May 18, 2011

Dita Von Teese returned to the Roxy Theatre on the Sunset Strip for two sold-out nights of  “Burlesque: Strip Strip Hooray!” featuring MC Murray Hill and special guests Raja (Winner of Rupaul’s Drag Race, Season 3), La Cholita, Lada from the Crazy Horse Paris, Monsieur Romeo of L’Effleur des Sens, and Diamondback Annie, New Orleans great Perle Noire.

Von Teese performed three of her spectacular burlesque shows: her makeup-inspired Powder Compact show, her opulent Opium Den show, and her brand new Swarovski Martini Glass show.  The Swarovski glass features over 250,000 Swarovski crystals, making it her most spectacular burlesque prop ever!!

Making her name on the burlesque and fetish scene in the 90s, Von Teese became famous as the “girl in the glass” with her Martini Glass show.  Since then, she has also created a Champagne Glass Coupe and a special “Be Cointreauversial” Glass for her role as the Global Brand Ambassador for Cointreau. Known all over the world for her elaborate props and ornate costumes covered in Swarovski crystal, Dita has always dreamed of having a Swarovski covered glass.

"My martini glass act has been my most popular burlesque act for over a decade, and it's a seen a few reinventions over the years, but finally I've fulfilled my dream to create the ultimate, most decadent and dazzling martini glass ever! This beautiful art-deco style cocktail glass is crystallized from top-to-bottom entirely in brilliant sparkling Swarovski crystal! I'm thrilled to bring it to many other major cities this year!" 

Nadia Swarovski, VP International Communications and Creative Director at Swarovski adds, “Dita is a class act. Her use of Swarovski crystal in her shows acts as the perfect foil to her spectacular talent and showcases how crystal can be used an a creative ingredient on stage.”
