Marlene Dietrich became a legend of inaccessible magnitude with her own image, acting skills, magnificent voice and natural attractiveness. Her professional success was based on three notions – patience, diligence and discipline.
Dietrich herself was a fashion-monger. She liked to show off in front of a mirror, sometimes she would come up with her own outfits, choosing the style of new shoes for hours and ordering the tailor’s costumes, dresses, gloves and furs.
Marlene did not like to open her toes, considering it vulgar, so she did not wear sandals. She calmly treated many hours of fitting, smoking one cigarette after another. Even Alfred Hitchcock admitted that he considers Marlene a professional fashion designer.
In any image, she has always been irresistible and brilliant. Marlene shone in the literal sense of the word, if you recall her “bare” dress, made by Jean Louis, which created an impression that the bright sparkles were sewn on the delicate skin of the actress. She admired the works of Balenciaga, Dior and Chanel.
To seem more perfect at the stage, Marlene came up with a very simple way – playing the shadows on her face, this was her riddle. In such a way the cheekbones became more bulky, and the eyes – more expressive. Later, she admitted that she intentionally did not paint her lower eyelashes, so that the shadow from them would not turn into black circles under her eyes.
But did she have a natural beauty?
Beauty is a loose concept. Beauty comes from within.
When Dietrich met Shterenberg, he saw in her not quite a pretty woman, although this did not stop their fast-moving romance. However, Shterenberg very strongly criticized the appearance of his beloved woman.
It was he who told her to lose weight, giving up cakes and hearty soups and switching to coffee, English salt in water and cigarettes. Actually, then almost every actress-woman smoked a cigarette in a day.
This is how the well-known Marlene Dietrich appeared.
To stay in good shape, the actress stuck to the German diet that is considered quite simple, but requires great willpower. After 13 days of consistent diet, one can lose 7 kilograms of excess weight and gain vigor and strength.
