Su Beningfield's jewelry
is unmistakably sculptural, reflecting her years of practice as a
design architect for the world-renowned architect Frank Gehry.
Her love of nature and a preference for bold and elegant
design imbued in her a fascination for natural lines and sensual
forms. Thus the reason she chose Morganne as a model for her line
of unique sculptural jewelry.

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
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 Connie.
There's also only one Morganne. So get your glam on and
catch you in WeHo after 9!
CabaretCabaret is at Palihouse, 8465 Holloway Drive,
West Hollywood. Free.

Downtown Los Angeles
From sweet sixteen in Montreal, to Paris
pre-legalese, Morganne soon became muse to several of the world's
formost Artists and Scholars. Senor Salvadore Dali, the great
A-muser of Time, was amongst those to have fallen under her spell.
Tutored by the great opera Diva, Magda
LeMaradour de L'Opera de Paris, and Nikolai Kolesnikov from
Russia's famous Bolshoi, Marganne was thought to be a natural
talent. Ballet, Modern Dance, Mime, Theater and Music had been her life
since the age of 5. This bare-handed Marquise
(by descent), was fully immersed in the music and fashion worlds
of Paris and Milan.
And oh, does she sing. She can start her show
with a spellbinding textured sound, sometimes compared to Sade, then
transport the listener to Gay Paris with a vibe a la Edith Piaf. After
she stirs up the heat and conjures sensuality like Grace Jones, she can
burst into vocal fireworks
that are similar to the great Shirley Bassey.

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!

Happy Holidays with
the Dazzling Morganne!
From her 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 experience
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
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 Theater.
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
Morganne wrote a song for designer Maggie Barry’s new perfume
‘Dangerous Love’, and is the spokes-model-singer of the perfume.
