TREND SETTER – MARLENE DIETRICH

Miss Dietrich in a severely tailored suit- something she made chic for the fashionable woman. Seated next to her is the Earl of Warwick (Michael Brooke) and Cary Grant appears to be captivated by Phyllis Brooks.

Okay, I’m not quite sure about this outfit… But, I’m guessing it’s something Miss Dietrich wore while performing for the USO during WWII.

    Women in severely tailored suits. Whoo! Few could carry it off like Frau Dietrich! I recognize her mood in that pic too. She still looks great though. 😉
    I like Ms Brooks’s hat too. Ms Lester have you ever considered “rocking” a chapeau?! I was eyeing a hat yesterday but attractive ladies really make them look chic.
    The outfit in the second image looks like something Frank Gorshin would have worn as The Riddler…

  7. I’ve never seen the vest but part of her USO act was “Mindreading” act where she’d pretend to read a soldier’s mind. At some point she would say “Oh, I can’t talk about that.” Supposedly she was criticized for the sexual innuendo. It was a very different time.
