A stock character in anything even very loosely inspired by FilmNoir. Every lounge will have a sultry female singing a sultry song. Her favorite outfit is a long evening gown, pearl necklace, slit up the side, and more than likely high heels and opera gloves. If she becomes a named character, she will often be the Veronica in a BettyAndVeronica romantic subplot. She could just be there in the background because every lounge that has anything approaching a FilmNoir feel must have this trope.

* Jessica Rabbit in ''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit'' is introduced this way, working as a singer in the Ink & Paint Club. The entire (male) crowd is gobsmacked by her beauty and sensuality, and Eddie Valiant openly asks Betty Boop how ''that'' woman wound up married to a comedian like Roger.
-->'''Betty Boop:''' Yeah... what a lucky "goyul".
