GRANDE DAME

Ethylina Canne...the grande dame of Palm Springs!!!  I have long adored her style.

She often embodies the three F’s when he steps onto a stage. Anyone who has seen Ethylina Canne channel old Hollywood glamour or “Dynasty” diva Alexis Carrington on Sunday nights at Toucans Tiki Lounge knows Ethylinas also has a talent for bringing fun to a performance.But when she competed in LA’s Best in Drag Show, it was another F that likely gave him the edge to win the whole shebang. Fantasy.Ethylina created a new character and backstory based on Christmas, a holiday he’s been gaga over since childhood. It’s easy to imagine young Ethylina as one of those kids whose Christmas Eve dreams hosted disco-dancing sugar plums.Fresh from his Best in Drag victory, he recently revealed to Desert Outlook, a local paper a new dream, his journey from Morro Bay to Palm Springs, and his thoughts on taking drag to the next level. But what I like most about her is his old school drag style and over the top hair. If your going to do drag big hair is a must in my book, and she’s the kind of girl who always has a nod to old Hollywood. She’s got class and style and sophistication. At the same time, she’s about entertaining the audience and bringing about laughter without having to be crass. Althought she is crass too! Her lastest show is Foxie Moxie, where tickets are available at Eventbrite and her Christams Show is a must see.

    2. I'm sure you did. That next to last photo looks exactly like me from the back (well, except for the hair... and my ass is a bit more perky).

  4. Flawless!
    That first picture is fantastic. And the caftan! And her accessorizing is on point!
    If a girl can do real housewives of Beverly Hills realness in broad daylight, hats off!

  5. I'm with Bob here, well the eyes drifting part. Hey, I was listening to Matt Monro the other day, and my mind got stuck on a particular song. I thought, "What a nice drag (or stripper) name that would be!" Wait for it.. Honi Ondavine! Anybody want it? Listen, I had a high fever for three or four days. Give me a break!
    Ms. Canne is gorgeous.

  7. Yes, I agree with Deedles and Bob, that second-to-last picture is a bit distracting. In fact, if I were Ethylina Canne, I think I'd be too distracted to look at the camera.
