Founder of the Bluebell Girls

by the Independent

When I first met "Miss Bluebell", as she was known to all, in 1981 in Paris for a magazine article, her first words were "I'm a character, you know". Her bold assertion proved no exaggeration. From that meeting sprang a cover story, a book and a BBC1 drama series.

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".

Last Bluebell Girl bows out at 92
Tributes have been paid to Gloria Sheaves, the last original member of the daring dance troupe. By Michael Horsnell for The Times

THE curtain has finally come down on the original, high-kicking Bluebell Girls who danced the cancan at the Moulin Rouge in Paris before the Nazis ruined everything.
