Thus, her appearance at a lavish New York City event where beauty and art collided on Wednesday night—La Prairie's The Art of Caviar exhibition—was no surprise. Von Teese's signature pinup girl waves and red lips were present, as was her retro-inspired style.
For the evening, the performer slipped on a floral jacquard dress from Ulyana Sergeenko. The design was fully equipped with a nipped-in waist and tea length.
To commemorate the 30th anniversary of its Skin Caviar line, La Prairie commissioned a group of contemporary artists to create works inspired by its groundbreaking technology. That blossomed into traveling The Art of Caviar exhibition, which first showed at Art Basel in Basel. The iconic beauty brand then decided to take its show on the road—showing the pieces to the public in Paris in July.
Among the artists are Paul Coudamy with his pieces Living Cells and Solid Frequencies, Bonjour Lab's digital work Moving Pixel, a Cinq Fruits photography series, and an audiovisual installation by TremensS.
Art and beauty lovers alike in New York City can see the works in person Thursday, Sept. 7 from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. at 3 West 57th Street. The exhibition will then travel to Hong Kong at the end of the month and Shanghai in November.
