A Victorian lingerie party fills the Montauk Club with lace and bosoms
The latest installment of the Dances of Vice party series, Les Secrets du Boudoir, celebrated the sexy and gorgeously nonsensical genius of old-fashioned lingerie. Partiers wore their finest corsets, fishnets and garter belts to Brooklyn's Montauk Club, where they were treated to burlesque from Rita Menweep, tap dancing from the Minsky Sisters and singing from the terrific, Edith Piaf-esque Luna Tart—plus a band called Grandpa Musselman and His Syncopators played all the greatest hits of the flapper era.
