CELEBRITY Retrospective

Marlene Dietrich had an impressive career that spanned seven decades, starting in the 1910s and morphing over the years with fashion, films, and with her own sheer will, until she died as she'd planned: an icon. The German-born Hollywood star was one of the highest-paid actresses of the era, famed for her unique androgynous glam, gossiped about for her many lovers, and all these years later she's still celebrated for her anti-fascist and positive LGBTQ contributions to history.

Click through to see her journey from young mother and silent film star to Hollywood's most promiscuous femme fatale, and all the way back to her home of Berlin to rest eternally as an icon of the silver screen.
