Marlene Dietrich is among the most famous film actresses of the 20th century. In addition, she is regarded as a style and fashion icon.

Marie Magdalene Dietrich was a German actress and singer. In 1999, the American Film Institute ranked her among the 25 greatest female screen legends of all time. Her breakthrough came with the lead role in the German film The Blue Angel (1930), in which “the Dietrich“ also sang her best known song Falling in Love Again (Can’t Help It). She is also credited with breaking gender stereotypes, as she liked to wear men’s clothing, and was often photographed in a suit and tie. The high-waisted style of pants worn by Dietrich have been copied so often that they are still referred to as “Marlene-trousers”. During the Second World War Dietrich made it clear that she opposed the National Socialists, and supported the struggle of the Allies.

There were many men in Marlene Dietrich’s live, but also sexual relationships with women. Marlene Dietrich was bisexual.
