Jillina is the world famous Bellydance Superstar. She has phenomenal technique, stage presence and unique choreography. She travels the world teaching and performing. She has left her mark on the art of bellydance forever.
Jillina and I go “way back” as dancers. I had the honor of dancing with many other notable dancers (Veena and Neena, Farhana and Selena) in Jillina’s wedding Zeffa. For as long as I can remember, Jillina always had the most outrageous costume collection. Even back when we were all just starting out performing in the restaurants and clubs of Los Angeles, I never, ever saw her in the same costume! This is no easy feat with the price of costumes, especially hers!
Having to select only one from such a considerable assortment for Costume of the Week is beyond difficult. But there is something about this champagne/gold/nude color costume that I just adore. In a world of giant sequin appliqués, this one stands out with its delicately sewn beadwork. It has a unique neckline and I am a sucker for applets (the fabric on her upper shoulder).
As the consummate performer, Jillina knows how to work each and every rhinestone on a costume. I can only imagine her shimmying in this costume before bringing the audience to its knees with her famous wink.
