Marlene, Miss Dietrich If You Please!

"A man would prefer to come home to an unmade bed and a happy woman than to a neatly made bed and an angry woman." Marlene Dietrich

There are many woman who are no longer with us that need celebrating and Marlene Dietrich is one of them. I adore this Icon and thought I'd share these lovely photos I found of her with you. At the peak of her career in the 1930s, Dietrich was the silver screen's highest-paid actress. She was the essence of cinematic eroticism, a beguiling creature whose allure established her among film's most enduring icons. While immensely sensual, Dietrich's persona was also strangely androgynous. It was this androgyny that Dietrich will forever be remembered for. Her love of mens suits and top hats created an added dimension of sexual ambiguity which served to make her even more magnetic.

  1. She may have said that but rumour has it that she was a real neat freak.
