Marlene Dietrich
She was one of the most fabulously dressed stars ever.





In her Paris apartment she kept her shoes in a Louis Vuitton trunk placed under a grand piano.


Also she would be sewn into her gowns, and 10 mm pearls placed strategically as to make the nipples appear larger than life. As well as inserting surgical needles into the forehead attached to a wig since face-lifts weren't effective enough.

Wow- that's a little more self-maintenance than I'm willing to do. But she looked great.

I adore Ms. Dietrich, so glamorous.

Ouch I thought I'd heard of that before but I thought I was imagining it. How did she not bleed?

It doesn't really show her style but I love this picture...
