Our most favorite chanteuse Morganne returns tonight
to CabaretCabaret, the new weekly haunt
by nightlife impressario Rich Royal, every
Wednesday at Pallihouse.
In recent years, it's been near impossible to
catch this rare bird in L.A., although she lives
here. She's been flitting around stages all over
the world, sharing her charms. I first came
across her a decade ago in some tiny upstairs
club near my place in mid-town. When it came to
my first Emmy party at Women's Wear Daily,
I hired her in a snap. I still run into guests
from that night who ask about her.
Morganne channels Edith Piaf, Grace Jones and
Shirley Bassey in a madcap gay Paree set of
standards, quips and camp. Women and drag queens
want to be her, and she is every bit X
chromosome, Darlings, and every bit fabulous.
We caught Morganne two weeks ago at CabaretCabaret
(that's a hard "t" on the restate) after a
delicious dinner under the stars in the
Pallihouse patio, with the every bit as mythic Constance Cooper playing
host. Clad in a second-skin black sweater dress
and dripping spakle, Connie even sang an ode to
booze which he used to do way back in the day in
dirty downtown New York when he was running
around with all the fantastic freaks. He'll be
sorely missed tonight as he's back in the Big
Apple celebrating his birthday. For us back here
in L.A., Alexis Arquette will attempt to step
into Constance's stilletos. He can try. But
there's only one singular sensation known as
There's also only one Morganne. So get your
glam on and catch you in WeHo after 9!
CabaretCabaret is at Palihouse, 8465

As the night ended, it was clear who the leading
paragon of interior design is…
and right now that is Barclay Butera.
The “Barclay Butera /
Elle Décor GO GLAMOUR!” event on
September 14th was glamorous to say the least. Elle
Décor magazine had chosen
Barclay Butera to host their once a year “Go
Glamour” night party. It also marked
the 3rd anniversary of Barclay’s 7500 sq ft showroom
located on the south west corner of Beverly and La
Brea in Hollywood, CA. The party was packed with
people all night long. Shoulder to shoulder crowds
of America’s most influential
people in the design world gathered to
celebrate the art of Barclay Butera.
New-ish 267 Infusion poured all evening, garnering
very positive ratings all ‘round
with their tasty fruit-infused liquors. There
was no need to go to far for a drink as
there was a bar upstairs and downstairs. Truly Yours
offered up tasty treats. The mix of the evening
proved intriguing and very positive.
Young Hollywood, who typically attend clubby,
rock-oriented “L.A.” parties
were enjoying talking to people with a wide range of
ages and career
backgrounds. People were there from many different
walks of life: interior design showrooms; magazines;
the mobile entertainment industry; as well as art
photographers, and of course, from talent agencies
and PR firms.
Spotted among the crowd was Michael Cade of
Grammy-nominated singer Sarah Kelly, Brian Ray who is
the guitarist to
Paul McCartney, Rod Stewart and also has own album,
and son of Anthony Quinn Alex Quinn, famous photographer Glen Wexler,
Michael Corbett of EXTRA, Ruth McCartney,
sister of Paul, photographer

Collaeger, editor of Western Interior &

entertain pals, wile away the
hours vegging, eat, sleep, breathe . . . Basically
home is the center of your
universe and should reflect that significant role.

I did manage to make it out for a few good shows
starting with embracing my inner Francophile by
dropping in the new bistro French 75 in the heart of
Burbank’s studio district. This restaurant/lounge is
like stepping into a Parisian dream, dripping in
decadently rich red décor, decidedly Parisian art
accents and the sensuous aroma of indulgent French
food and the clink of fancy cocktails. The only
thing missing is an enforced dress code of men in
fedora hats and women draped in plumage and smoking
cigarettes from slinky stems in gloved hands.
One woman who always
dresses the part is Morganne, Hollywood’s
own Canadian bred, world-traveled, cabaret jazz
doll. With her jazzy backup band, she was the
perfect fit for this swanky joint. Decked out in
long gown, gloves and headdress, she cooed
everything from French classics to jazzy originals.
Most impressive was her catchy bebop French rap. And
what is a night amongst the Hollywood studios
without a star sighting? Special guest (and
appropriately named) Paris from American Idol
stopped in for a drink and seized the opportunity
for a duet. I felt right at home in this lux place
so I had to come back a few nights later for dinner
and found the food absolutely divine as I treated my
taste-buds to chicken and mushroom crepes and of
course, fine wine. This place is worth treating
yourself to a little ooh la la!

dazzling performance at LA’s landmark Walt Disney
Concert Hall’s inaugural gala to her renown l.a.
Eyeworks’ print campaign, the incomparable
chanteuse and former Vogue model Morganne Picard
is mesmerizing Los Angeles audiences. The press
raves, “Exotic, dynamic and thoroughly gorgeous –
her alluring presence and various costume changes
per night, is only exceeded by her singing
ability. Oh does she sing!”
This 'Queen of the Underground' has ascended to
Hollywood’s “Divine Diva.” Mix a phenomenal live
singing ability with a provocative stage presence,
and you have one of the rare breed of singers
invited to perform at the finest venues and most
exclusive Hollywood parties without the benefit of
representation or a record deal.
This charming and soulful indie pioneer hasn’t had
the time to focus on mainstream validation, her
laid back philosophy is rather, let mainstream
come to her.
Morganne’s singing and modeling career skyrocketed
in Paris in her early teens, where she was
snatched up and signed by Warner Brother’s
International. Her exquisite looks and prodigious
live vocal talent catapulted her into the
limelight singing at the famous Parisian nightclub
Les Bains Douches, starring in films and
commercials, and modeling for print and runway
around the World.
Later Morganne moved to New York where she honed
down her Jazz career, and sang at such notorious
venues as the Blue Note and Nell’s. Upon
relocating to Los Angeles, the city warmly
embraced her European flare, and a loyal and
devoted fan base gradually blossomed.
As a student of opera, ballet, belly dancing and
mime, this triple threat entertainer thrives in a
live setting as she blends her talents into an
unforgettable show that has heated up the hippest
nightclubs and venues worldwide. Decked out in
haute couture, with a magnificent chapeaux from
her legendary collection, Morganne’s electric
fusion of Jazz, Blues, Latin, Reggae, Trip Hop,
Chill-Out and vintage R&R , results in a
thrilling repertoire you’re not likely to
This glamorous, globe trotting artist has
performed at the House of Blues, Montreal Jazz
Festival, and opened for megastar Barbra Streisand
at the Kodak Theater as well as The Los Angeles
Philharmonic at the Hollywood Bowl.
She has also entertained at such elite functions
as Mercedes-Benz’ Los Angeles Fashion Week, Stella
McCartney’s “Absolut Stella” soiree, opening of
the W Hotel and of the Music Box-Henry Fonda
Morganne’s most exciting personal accomplishment
was achieved when she was invited by the UNITED
NATIONS to be an honorary artist of the new
initiative “Artists for the United Nations” a
partnership between Global Vision for Peace and
the UN – with an honorary committee including his
holiness the Dalai Lama. She was also recognized
with an award of achievement for her extraordinary
volunteering in arts, education and programming
for the Los Angeles Cultural Affairs Department.
Morganne wrote a song for designer Maggie Barry’s
new perfume ‘Dangerous Love’, and is the
spokes-model-singer of the perfume.

Lee Iacocca had
a little piece of the East Coast at his Bel Air,
California birthday bash. The former president of
Ford Motor Co. turned 90 in mid-October and
daughters Lia and Kate decided to throw him a New
York-themed bash, complete with a New York City
taxicab parked out front of his villa and
International Chanteuse Morganne crooning the
guests. According to a news release, Iacocca
celebrated with 80 of his closest friends and
family. Iacocca got a standing ovation from the
crowd after leading his sister on the dance floor.
He was presented with a piece of The Statue Of
Liberty for one of his greatest
accomplishments! By 1982, a century's
worth of weather, pollution, and sightseeing had
left Lady Liberty's crown, torch and gown badly in
need of a comprehensive refurbishing. So Mr.
Iaccoca lead a private sector effort to raise
funds for the restoration and preservation of the
Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. It is with
immense honor that Morganne was chosen to sing for
Mr. Iacocca's 90th Birthday!
Lee Iacocca invited Morganne to perform at his
home for a charity dinner supporting his
