3. Perle Noire
At No. 3 this year is the majestic, roof-raising, crowd-slaying High Priestess of Fabulous, Perle Noire!
Perle’s high energy performances have to be seen to be believed. Described by some as the reincarnation of her heroine, Josephine Baker, Perle dances with strength, confidence and breathtaking gymnastic agility. She has been recognised with a number of awards: ‘Queen of Burlesque’ at the New Orleans Burlesque Festival, ‘Best Debut’ at BHoF in 2008, Second Runner Up in BHoF 2009, and ‘Most Dazzling’ at BHoF in 2012.
In 2013, Perle’s appearances included the Alabama Burlesque Festival, the Australian Burlesque Festival tour, the Perth Burlesque Festival, and the New York Burlesque Festival. She also performed in Tansy’s NY production Eager To Lose, gave a show-stopping performance in the spectacular Sublime Boudoir event in London, performed a gorgeous tribute to burlesque legend Toni Elling at the Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekend 2013, and toured with Dita Von Teese and cast in Strip Strip Hooray!
