Australian Burlesque Beauty - Miss Rita Fontaine - Sydney, Australia
Rita Fontaine is ‘The Meanest Fox in Town”, a Mistress of Ceremonies, Storyteller, Comedian and Satirist.
Rita is the first ever Miss Burlesque Australia (2010) and is the top Mistress of Ceremonies on the Burlesque circuit; a red-headed vamp with dangerous curves, she has ‘gypsy’ in her blood and she knows how to prove it.
With acts varying from drag, comedy and tease. Rita is renowned for her social commentary in a comical depiction of current Australian Prime Minister, Julia Gillard’s conquering of Kevin Rudd and rise to power.
Rita is known not only for her hot blooded prowess and lush glamour. This wild woman is a comic cat and has her audiences eating out of the palm of her hands and rolling in the isles with laugher.

Photographer Gabriele Galimberti’s grandmother said something similar to him before one of his many globetrotting work trips. To ensure he had at least one good meal, she prepared for him a dish of ravioli before he departed on one of his adventures.
“In that occasion I said to my grandma ‘You know, Grandma, there are many other grandmas around the world and most of them are really good cooks,” Galimberti wrote via email. “I’m going to meet them and ask them to cook for me so I can show you that you don’t have to be worried for me and the food that I will eat!’ This is the way my project was born!”
The project, “Delicatessen With Love”, took Galimberti to 58 countries where he photographed grandmothers with both the ingredients and finished signature dishes.
He acted as photographer and stylist during each shoot with the grandmothers, taking a portrait of both the women and the food they made for him.
