Direct from Paris comes this sumptuous design inspired by the night Dolores joined the cancan and set the Place Pigalle on fire. Literally. During a limited engagement at Montmartre’s famed Moulin du Mouton, her scandalously revealing high kicks during the notorious Danse de la chandelle (candle dance) whipped the audience into such a frenzy that they poured out of the theater and into the street, carrying her aloft with shouts of “Encore! Encore!” (or “Pas encore!”—accounts vary). In the commotion, the lit candle flew from Dolores’s bosom and set her richly plumed hat ablaze. The conflagration spread to a nearby public convenience, which was utterly incinerated. A commemorative plaque marks the spot of the tragédie. Buy the knitting kit to make your own Dolores doll here.
