New Orleans Burlesque Festival 2011 in Photos

Here is a glimpse of the glamour, mischief and fun that was this year’s New Orleans Burlesque Festival. Headed by Rick Delaup and sponsored by Secrets in Lace, a leading designer and retailer of elegant, vintage style lingerie, this year’s festival vaulted to the top of the Burlesque circuit. The festival culminated with the crowning of the Queen of Burlesque, Ginger Valentine from Dallas, Texas. First runner up and second runners up were LouLou D’vil and Lola Van Ella.
