"I dress for the image. Not for myself, not for the public, not for fashion, not for men... I am at heart a gentleman!" ~ Marlene Dietrich
Ever since I was a child, I have wanted to look like the actresses of old Hollywood. Marlene’s films have always been a source ofstyle inspiration for me. She would wear the most outrageous of outfits or indeed the most wearable down-to-earth clothes which can easily be worn today, and they are. Ah, Marlene!
Can I choose a single favourite film by Marlene? No. Why would I settle for a starter if I can have a whole three course meal?
But if I had to choose a single must see, I’d say Morocco (1930) in all its glory.

Cold blue angel
She is my great, great inspiration. I just can't get enough of Marlene! I'm ready to look at her all the time and at her incredible eyes with big eyelids! I have always loved Marlene. Her glamour was over the top, surreal, dangerous, androgynous and unforgetable.
Inaccessible, mysterious, fascinating and rare beauty. Cold, blue angel and a glamorous femme fatale. Marlene Dietrich singing in Morocco!
