To create our own Burlesque-worthy ensemble, we paired a strapless lace jumpsuit from Tibi ($470 at Net-a-Porter) with a simple long leather gloves ($85 at All Saints ). Sexy "Tribute" sandals by YSL ($795 at Shirise) and a feather clutch by Lanvin ($1185 at Kirna Zabete) give the look a touch of va-va-voom, while the perfect red lipstick ($30 at Sephora) and chandelier earrings from Topshop ($20) add just enough color and shine.
