Dita Von Teese kicked off her Las Vegas strip show with a bang on Thursday evening in Sin City.

The 51-year-old burlesque star sizzled as she wore skimpy lingerie and danced in a tall martini glass for the eye-popping routine.

Dita – whose birth name is Heather Sweet – is performing at the Horseshoe Las Vegas’s Jubilee Theater.

One of the themes was a circus act which included male and female backup dancers.

And there was also a cowgirl theme: Von Teese wore a pink and sparkly cowboy ensemble and rode a pink mechanical bull wearing nipple pasties.

There were also costumes from the showgirls revue Jubilee. The famous show lasted from 1981 to 2016 at was also held in the Horseshoe Las Vegas’s Jubilee Theater.

Von Teese told People she was using some of the Jubilee costumes and sets in her new performance, including feathers that cost $1 million in 1981 when Jubliee was first performed.

 ‘The costumes in this is bonkers. 

‘The amount of feathers in this show cost something like $1 million dollars — just the feathers, not the costumes, the feathers. 

‘That was in 1981, so I don’t know how much that is now.

‘What I’m trying to do is merge my tour and bringing the crème de la crème of burlesque and dance world into one show. 

‘I’m just bringing in all of my own personal obsessions and fantasies and the best of what I love about burlesque and merge it together with a little wink of the eye toward Jubilee. I think Vegas needs something that continues the art of the showgirl and the art of burlesque,’ she said.

Von Teese also shared on social media: #DitaLasVegas opens TONIGHT @horseshoevegas in the legendary Jubilee Theater!’
