Hello, gorgeous! If you’re like me and have spent ages trying to justify the purchase of a Catherine D’lish robe, then this is officially your signal to stop everything and order one this very second, because Seattle burlesque performer Icy London has just mic dropped us all with this STUNNING set of images from her most recent Virtual Boudoir Shoot, featuring two gorgeous D’lish robes. Offering us top to toe glamour, I’ve not been able to stop thinking about this series of images since we shot them in February and I’m sure you’re going to love them as much as I do!
If you’ve not met Icy London before, Here’s a quote from her website that sums her up perfectly… “From her silk-stocking roots, she embodies luxuriousness and opulence. Swathed in frosty elegance, her performances are enchanting and her sultry intensity is sure to leave you with a chill down your spine.” Want to know more about this sensual seductress? I caught up with Icy London below…

Do you remember how you originally found me? We first met when arranging a shoot with INGA, Reigning Queen of Burlesque 2018
What inspired you to book a photoshoot? After seeing how beautifully INGA’s shoot went, I knew I had to do one, too. When lockdown cancelled everyone’s travel plans, I was bummed that we wouldn’t be able to make it happen as we’d discussed. I was so excited when Tigz announced virtual shoots, I signed up immediately. Plus, not being able to perform or go anywhere, I wanted to get glammed up and do something to recreate that feeling in quarantine.
