Margaux La Chapelle

Nationality: French

Hair: blonde

Eyes: blue

Astrological sign: Sagittarius

 

How did you get your stage-name?

My name refers to Queen Margot and to one of the great French wines, the Chateau Margaux.

 

What is your fondest memory at the Crazy Horse thus far?

The greatest moment was when Svetlana, our Show Manager, told me I’d be part of the team after the audition in Paris.

 

How do you get motivated when you get up every day?

Through a bit of music, a lot of drive and doing some sports.

 

Who is the woman that inspires you most?

I don’t have a role model. I get inspired from every single woman I meet, I draw on their differences and keep what’s good.

Margaux La Chapelle

You need much love and passion to be a Crazy Girl

 

What’s your best beauty and/or fitness tip?

A few recipes my grandmother handed down to me, some spirulina and positive thoughts.

 

What is “Crazy” and what is “not Crazy” for you?

Crazy is a voluptuous mouth, a small nose and great big sparkly eyes. What isn’t, is brittle and dull hair with split ends.

 

What is your favorite act in the show?

I love them all and it changes depending on the mood I’m in, but I think that “Rougir de Désir” is my favorite at the moment.

 

How do you become a Crazy Horse dancer?

It’s not easy, I even had to audition four times… You need a lot of resolve, to make a few concessions and above all, you need much love and passion.

 

How do you prepare before getting on stage? Are there any rituals you go through?

Before getting on stage, I take time to concentrate on the choreographies I will be performing. To relieve some of the stress, nothing better than to goof around with my friends a bit.

 

In only three words, how would you define a Crazy Girl?

An elegant, sensual and mysterious woman.
