Famous burlesque queen Dita Von Teese is featured on the cover and inside the April 2009 issue of Inked Magazine.

Known for her support for PETA, Dita wears colorful faux fox fur in the editorial ‘The Notorious Dita Von Teese’ to show that you can look sexy without killing animals.

Dita Von Teese was photographed by Sheryl Nieldsd.

Implications - Dita Von Teese has singlehandedly brought the art of burlesque and pin-up style to the modern spotlight, resulting in another round of retro-revival fashion and pop culture patterns. The modern-day version of pin-up style is different, however, and incorporates a sense of edginess and liberation that wasn't originally present for the ruby-lipped ladies of the past.
