Babes of Burlesque: 24
Known by the cheeky nickname “Her Royal Hiney,” Australia’s Imogen Kelly is the world’s Reigning Queen of Burlesque, being so crowned in 2012 by the Burlesque Hall of Fame in Las Vegas. She’s the first queen from Australia and only the second from outside North America, following in the footsteps of Immodesty Blaize. Before embarking on a career in burlesque, Imogen studied to become a circus artist, and she continues to incorporate many high-flying aerial routines in her shows. Her act is highly visual, with many elaborate costumes and props. Among many other claims to fame, she shares the world’s record for the largest custard pie fight.
Let Them Eat Cake is her tribute to Marie Antoinette.
Here, she goes aloft to perform her magic aerial act on the Australian TV program “Sideshow.”
