Mistinguett (1875 - 1956), legendary French singer and actress, started out as a florist, singing songs for clients and dreaming of shining on stage. With the help of her parents, she decided to invest in dance and singing classes. He debuted at the Paris Casino in 1895, also appearing in shows at the Folies Bergère or the Moulin Rouge. Very sensual, her performances won over the public in Paris and soon after the world, becoming the most popular and richest star of her time. In 1919 he secured his legs, fantasy and the desire of millions of fans, for a million-dollar policy at the time.

Mistinguett had a very long career as a singer, but she was also a symbol of the avant-garde for her style of clothing and attitudes, being the first to wear short hair, show off her legs and smoke, habits later consecrated by Coco Chanel. He also worked on the first French films, which were still silent at the time. In all his activities, he always maintained direct contact with the public. Very charismatic and beautiful, she mesmerized the public and... men, such as the young Maurice Chevalier, an Indian maharaja, son of Queen Victoria of England and a rich Brazilian with whom she had a son.

This document was written by Mistinguett, in Rio De Janeiro, a week after her participation in the inauguration of the Copacabana Palace, as a singer, on August 13, 1923.
