The Duchess is a beautiful, riveting performer with intense presence and silky, seductive voice. Like a ferociously gorgeous kitten.

Duchess deBerry is a royal flirt. Her doll-like looks belie a wicked glint to the eye that taunts as she teases. Disrobing with a sly wink, The Duchess never disappoints

I have known Duchess deBerry since she first started performing burlesque in 2010. She has blossomed into a beautiful, enchanting performer who has developed her own signature style. She's a delight to work with, both on stage and backstage.

With a dark brown bob framing her fine facial features, along with her long legs, statuesque figure and graceful movements, Duchess deBerry is the personification of effortless sexual elegance. This might be due to her training in classical ballet and other forms of dance. She was also classically trained as a singer. I tried hard to think of the time when I last saw a stage persona that was as aesthetically attractive and appealing as Duchess deBerry, and couldn’t.
