While the majority of country sat watching the closing ceremony of the 2012 Paralympics, Dita Von Teese put on an alternative show.
The burlesque dancer did what she does best as she took to the stage at The Arts Club, London, and put on a racy spectacle on Saturday night.
The 39-year-old may be approaching her 40th birthday at the end of this month but she showed no signs of aging.

Passion punch: Dita covered her curves in the modest yet elegant dress as she styled her outfit completely in the colour red
The brunette looked sensational in a red mono strap dress that teased with just enough of her chest area on show.
The classy frock also showed off Dita's enviable and world famous hourglass shape as she teamed it with rouge lipstick and matching heels.
The star wore her dark locks with gentle curls in them as she hosted the night to launch her My Cointreau Evening bag.

The vintage styled handbag was designed by Dita herself and will be sold exclusively at Selfridges.
Guests at the party were treated to specially made cocktails called MargaDitas as well as getting to witness the dancer's routine up, close and personal.
Dita had earlier spoken about her excitement at being in London when she tweeted her 1.2million followers.
She said: 'Arrived in London, doing a mini-show at Dover St Arts Club for members tomorrow night. (&looking to bring StripStripHooray! to London soon!)'
