What a Teese!

| October 25, 2011 | Parties

THE PARTY It was a sold-out evening for Monte Carlo Goes Burlesque, the MCASD’s biggest gala of the year. And the after-party? Let’s just say the evening’s diva, Dita Von Teese, delivered! THE SCENE Donors came out in full force for the 35th annual event, where the museum’s La Jolla campus underwent a boudoir-inspired transformation. Nearly $700,000 was raised! THE AFTER-PARTY The gents practically bum-rushed the stage for a bird’s-eye view of Ms. Von Teese’s artful show, while ladies stood on their Louboutin tippy-toes to catch a glimpse. Inspired by the cabaret, revelers danced until the wee hours of the night. Photography by Doug Gates
