With just days to go ahead of the fabulous Winter Ball we have planned, we found time to interview the most glamorous and stupendous Miss Betsy Rose.
An incredible performer, she has starred in West End productions, brought her mesmerising presence to celluloid via feature films and has even performed for Dolce & Gabbana, Givenchy, Cointreau and Paris Fashion week.
A classic beauty, she has also featured in French Vogue, GQ Italia, ID, Harpers Bazaar and Italian Playboy to name but a few. But beware, men - one glance at her beauty has been known to reduce males to a quivering wreck (or so we hear!).
What is your main performance inspiration?
I adore the style of bygone era's. I let my passion of history and vintage aesthetics inspire my character's and costume. The Performance part is something that comes so very naturally. I have been on stage since the age of three so this really is all I know.
What do you love most about burlesque and cabaret?
That absolutely anything goes! Burlesque has no rules, no boundaries, no yes or no. It's all encompassing and inclusive of every single person in the room at that moment. It is more than a genre or piece of theatre...it is one big riot of a party!
What has been your most memorable performance so far?
One of my favourites this year I was in Portofino, Italy. so overwhelmingly thrilled to perform at Dolce & Gabanna's closing party for their Alta Moda show this year. Never have I experienced glamour quite like it. I was carried on stage in a giant shell by 20 sailor boys. Utterly divine!
Can you give us a retro or burlesque style tip?
More is never enough! Oh, and add a hat! Everything looks and feels better with a hat of sorts.
If you'd like to see Miss Betsy Rose in person, tickets are available right now for our Winter Ball - from Russia with Love. Do come along and join the glitterati!
