Since that time the pop singer has gone from red leather jumpsuit in Oops I Did It Again to a Ring Master Costume in her 7th concert tour the circus.

Although she has worn many a sexy outfit over the years Britney maintains that she prefers the casual look, and is quoted as saying ‘I love my jeans and my sweats – I’m really just a tomboy at heart. So it’s really hard for me to be like Kim Kardashian and be makeup- and hair-ready every time I go out of my house.

‘I’m not a believer in that, you know? On the other hand, when you do wear those sweats, you’re like, “Oh God, I should step it up a notch”.’

For all the costumes over the years the one that everyone will remember most is likely to be the Slave to you outfit from the 2001 MTV VMAs awards, it raised eyebrow and was one of the most popular Sexy Halloween Costumes in 2002.

The Classic Sexy Costumes

A sexy nurse costume is a classic. Other classics include the school girl costume, the sex kitten and the various armed forces costumes.  In fact, nearly every costume that you can think of probably has a sexy counterpart.  Some just remain classics because they are that great.  These are the costumes that are never out of favor.  These are the costumes that will always sell well.  These are the costumes that most people want.

For a costume to be considered a “classic” it has to have real staying power. The Miley Cyrus costume from last season was amusing and sexual if not necessarily sexy but is not going to be as popular this year because that whole event has been talked to death.  In fact, if you ask some of the people, including those who were the most outraged at the time about that particular award show, you might be surprised by how few details people will be able to give.  Many of them may not even remember the name of the singer that Cyrus performed with on that fateful night.  The costume was a hit last year because it was fresh on everyone’s mind.  This year? Not so much.

Another thing that sets the classics apart from the Hottie Come Lately costumes is the ability to choose your levels.  A sexy nurse costume could be just a regular nurse costume with the top undone just a little more than necessary or it could be a full blown, fetish style latex costume that would be worn for a very private, intimate party for two.  Some of the new “sexy” costumes are nothing more than an excuse to be as bare as you dare and then some.  In other words, the classic sexy costumes usually leave a bit to the imagination and are more tasteful than the new school, sexy costumes.

If you walk into a room in one of the classic sexy costumes, people will notice you and they will definitely pay careful attention to you, especially if you walk in alone.  No one will ask who or what you are supposed to be because they will all know.  That is the advantage of the classics- they are always in style, always topical and never fall out of favor.  Some of the stars of today are hot one minute and then old news the next- they will never be considered “classic” anything.  Their costumes are only going to be popular at that moment and the moment will be fleeting before it is relegated to the bargain bins for has-beens and never weres.

The Australian Burlesque Festival is Coming – Get Your Tickets Now!

Now entering its fifth year, the Australian Burlesque Festival’s upcoming lineup has been set and announced and tickets are expected to sell like hotcakes. Whether you are a huge fan of the genre or are new to burlesque, this is an event that you just should not let yourself miss. And, if you have never seen burlesque live, the Festival might be the very best place to make that change.

Founded by performers, Dolores Daiquiri and Rosy Rabbit, the Australian Burlesque Festival has toured Australia playing at different venues and bringing a whole new world of entertainment to people who might have otherwise missed it.  For those who do not know, burlesque is not just a fancy word for “strip club” in fact, the performers often only give the subtle illusion of being nude. Some do shimmy out of some of their garments, but in such a way that you will be charmed by it and utterly enchanted by burlesque for the rest of your life.

The Festival will open on June 5th with a performance called “Baby Bombshells”. This opening night is special because it features all of the emerging performers in a contest that will be judged by the industry’s top names and performers. All of the featured performers on the stage that night will have had two years or less experience in burlesque. Other shows will continue for the entire run of the festival with different performers and themes for each venue.

While many of the performers you will see are from Australia, there are many other “imports” that will be on stage in different shows. Look for some of the top names from Italian, German and American burlesque as well as performers from New Zealand as well.

For those who have more than just a passing interest in burlesque, there is something special during the run of the Festival as well. Different performers will be available during special workshops in the various cities – with some cities even offering more private, one-on-one workshops as well. Wouldn’t it be fabulous to take your special someone to a performance and then on the way home whisper that you have a special surprise- a home burlesque performance with you as the one and only star? It would be a special moment for both of you, without a doubt.
