When we saw these advance photos of international burlesque dancer, Miss Dirty Martini, we had flashbacks of her great holiday performance at HeadQuarter’s XXXmas Party just last month!

Shot in the House of Chanel by Mr. Karl Lagerfeld for V Magazine, The Size Issue celebrates women of all shapes and sizes.

Miss Dirty Martini poses alongside Coco look-alike, actress Jane Schmitt, who once starred as Gabrielle Chanel in one of Lagerfeld’s short films, Paris-Shanghai: A Fantasy.

Wearing accessories by Chanel and Lagerfeld — along with pasties, cut-out bras, garter belts and stockings — Miss Dirty Martini looks surprisingly right at home in Coco’s Rue Cambon apartment.

When asked about why she accepted the invitation to pose for V, Miss Dirty Martini said: “Posing on the Double C’s, modeling like my life depended on it, I thought, ‘Why not? Why can’t designers make fashion that mimics the architecture of hips and busts and then choose models that wear it perfectly?’”

Miss Dirty Martini has made a living out of making an entrance. And sure enough, the burlesque star’s mad, late-night spin through the Chanel atelier ended up blowing the roof off 31 Rue Cambon.

Coco would be spinning in her twinset, if she wasn’t a part of the show.
