Events--Presenting STYLE STORIES--MARLENE DIETRICH at Annenberg Beach House Tomorrow!

On the heels of yesterday's presentation at the Skirball Cultural Center on THE HISTORY OF FASHION IN FILM NOIR, I'm speaking tomorrow about the style evolution of Marlene Dietrich at the Annenberg Beach House!

Marlene Dietrich 
Shanghai Express (1932) + A Foreign Affair (1948)

6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Guest speaker
Annenberg Beach House 
Santa Monica, CA

Some from the Golden Age of Hollywood have transcended film and become iconic because of their style.  This is the first in a series that compares two films from different times in the careers of four legendary actresses—Marlene Dietrich, Gloria Swanson, Joan Crawford, and Audrey Hepburn

Both films will feature a different costume designer working with the star.  Some will show a certain continuity of style between the two.  Some will show dramatic changes.  They all will offer insight into the lives of these women, their evolution as actresses, and ascent as style icons.  Learning the stories behind their screen style gives us even deeper insight into the history of film as well as their impact on the history of fashion.

Join me for the first in this series--a presentation on Marlene Dietrich and her style evolution from Shanghai Express (1932) to A Foreign Affair (1948)--at the Annenberg Beach House in Santa Monica.  

The Beach House is the former estate of 1920s and 1930s screen star Marion Davies and William Randolph Hearst, and three of the four stars in this series have a personal connection to the place. Marlene once lived in the Guest House that still stands.

Event is FREE to the public, but you must RSVP to reserve your seat in order to attend.
