Founder of the Bluebell Girls

by the Independent

Dancing queen of the Moulin Rouge dies
by SALLY POOK for the Daily Telegraph

One of the last original Bluebell girls who danced the cancan nightly at the Moulin Rouge in Paris has died at the age of 92.

The girls' risque routines gave them celebrity status and yesterday Mrs Sheaves's family were mourning "the end of a glamorous era".
