Originally from Sarajevo in Bosnia-Herzegovina, but now based in Berlin, Lada Redstar bills herself as “The Hot Pinup From the Cold!” Having just won the World Burlesque Crown at the 2012 Burlesque Games in London, Redstar draws her inspiration from the American burlesque stars of the 1940s. By turns, she has portrayed a Navy pin-up, a Hollywood starlet, a magical nymph revealing herself rather naughtily. She also impersonates a heartbroken Frida Kahlo and Brigitte Bardot riding a Harley.
It’s Strip Ahoy! in her salute to the Navy life.
At the 2011 London Burlesque Gala, she soared like a butterfly. Befitting a stripper who studied the history of art at the Sorbonne in Paris, France.
