“`The lookThe wardrobeThe style…   Marlene Dietrich brought androgyny to the silver screen, through her roles in Morocco and Blue Angel. An unrivaled Hollywood star at a time when talkies were still new, she captured men’s hearts, and piqued women’s interest.  Dietrich challenged the limited conventions of femininity at the time, with her avant-garde lifestyle and fashion.  MARLENE DIETRICH ->

“`A new exhibition showcasing Marlene Dietrich is in the Smithsonian Institute’s – National Portrait Gallery  through April, 2018. It is the first major North American exhibit dedicated to her. Dressed for the Image displays personal artifacts from Marlene’s career such as photos, correspondence, and celluloid clips. This is a fascinating look at a woman clearly ahead of her time.

“`Dietrich’s honors include the Medal of Freedom, for unflinching service in entertaining Allied troops during World War II often along the front lines. Her versatility as an actress was on full display in the 1957 film Witness For the Prosecution. The German-born chanteuse remains a symbol of anti-Nazism, a fashion icon, and an influential figure to the LGBTQ community.

“`Marlene Dietrich: Dressed for the Image was organized in cooperation with Deutsche Kinemathek:  Marlene Dietrich Collection Berlin.  Additional support from the American Portrait Gala EndowmentPortrait Gallery historian Kate C. Lemay is the curator.
