Phew! I'm getting dizzy just watching Dita von Teese lately. The burlesque beauty has been all over the place from London Fashion Week to the launch of her new Wonderbra collection, to acting as official ribbon-cutter at the opening of Harvey Nichols in Bristol. Dressed in a blue Rodarte dress and nude Christian Louboutin heels, Dita entertained the celeb crowd with a special striptease performance.

Guests were also treated to entertainment from contortionists, fire-eaters, magicians and stilt-walkers at the launch of the sixth outlet for the department store.

"Credit crunches come and go but we are not here for now or for six months," said general manager, Sue Stones. "We've got a 35-year lease so the people of Bristol will still come and shop with us for many years to come."

For their promotional campaign, Harvey Nicks chose Wallace & Gromit as their poster boys - click here to watch the behind-the-scenes footage from that campaign.
