(Reigning Queen of Burlesque, 2005)
Michelle L’amour – stunningly sexy, beautiful, agile, intelligent and inspiring in every way. Adored by men and women alike, Michelle exudes a sexual energy and strength on stage that stirs her audience into a frenzy. We have rarely met a woman who is so innately comfortable with her nudity and manipulates her flesh with such devastating effect!
Michelle’s 2011 appearances include performances at the Windy City Burlesque Festival, the Colorado Burlesque Festival, the Montreal Burlesque Festival, and a tantalising tango at BHoF on Superstar Sunday – which she also produced this year. In April, on her birthday, Michelle asked us to publish an online debut of her sensational new act, ‘Shower with Affection’, which you can enjoy below. She also treated us all to another Superstars of Burlesque show in Chicago, which boasts the most mindblowing, world class line-up we could possibly imagine!
Her empire is going as strong as ever – Naked Girls Reading is still spreading across the globe, the Everleigh Social Club continues to offer mysterious, sensual delights, and the students keep selling out the excellent courses and classes available at Studio L’amour. In addition to all of her existing products and businesses, Michelle has brought out a new DVD – Tease ‘n’ Tone, which offers the ultimate burlesque workout. Believe us when we say this is no gimmick – this is a serious and effective workout (we know, we have tried it!), but Michelle makes it so fun and rewarding.
With a powerful, sensual beauty, and intelligence, determination and talent in abundance; Michelle is destined to be one of the great, celebrated legends of striptease…
