Michelle L’amour’s Chicago Starlets are a one-of-a-kind burlesque company from Chicago. The group, which includes 17 beautiful ecdysiasts (including Miss L’amour herself), is made up entirely of girls who came up through the ranks of Studio L’amour. Several of them even currently teach at the Studio.
Besides being a magnificent mob of molls, The Chicago Starlets are the highest rated and most talked about burlesque company in the Midwest. What started as “student show” (the world’s sexiest dance recital) in 2006 has now turned into a veritable Her-icane of sexy.
They’ve travelled internationally and have been featured at all of the top festivals from Tease-O-Rama and New York Burlesque Festival to Toronto Burlesque Festival and B.O.M.B. (Best of the Midwest Burlesk). As of this writing, 5 Starlets have competed in the annual Burlesque Hall of Fame “Exotic World” competition (with our very own Michelle L’amour winning the title in 2005) and many others have been featured in other performances during the festival.
With hit shows like the long running “Lipshtick” and the brand new “Belles and Whistles” under their belt, they show no signs of slowing down.
