Marlene Dietrich

The original image-obsessed star who set the standard for creating a mythic fantasy of herself  through photographs. She cultivated every imaginable female persona possible for her time and set herself apart through her unmatched discipline and perfectionism in caring for her physical allure, the pursuit of artifice and celebrating the art of posing. Her taste for dressing in masculine attire caused quite a stir back in the 30's, well ahead of today's ongoing fascination with the appeal of androgynous men and women.She will continue to be referenced and sampled by the entertainment and fashion industries.
