Bei einer aus der Not geborenen Zechprellerei lernt sie den ebenfalls stellungslosen alternden Homosexuellen Toddy, einen ehemaligen Vaudeville-Star, kennen. Der phantasievolle und einfallsreiche Toddy überredet sie zu einer tollkühnen Aktion: Victoria soll sich als Victor, Frauendarsteller aus Rußland, ausgeben. In der Künstleragentur erregt das Paar tatsächlich größtes Aufsehen, und schon bald ist das erste Engagement unter Dach und Fach. Victor/Victorias erster Auftritt in einer noblen Transvestitenshow wird zum Sensationserfolg. Ganz Paris liegt ihr/ihm zu Füßen. Manager Toddy und sein Star residieren im Ritz, Taxis, Champagner und Kaviar werden Gewohnheit. Eines Abends findet sich auch der amerikanische Nightclub-Tycoon aus Chicago, King Marchan, mit seiner hochblonden Geliebten Norma ein. Er ist fasziniert von der Frau, die er dort auf der Bühne sieht, deshalb verärgert und verunsichert, als sich die Dame als Victor entpuppt. Trotzdem zieht es King immer wieder in die Show, und bald kommt er auch hinter das Geheimnis. Für Victoria ist die Situation nicht minder strapazierend, denn sie hat sich längst in den maskulinen King verliebt.
