Nadja Auermann sings as Marlene Dietrich in “Dietrich Chic” for US Vogue, September 1992. Photograph by Ellen von Unwerth.
“An unsettling masculine/feminine character was Dietrich’s signature, and it was an accessory–the top hat– that symbolized the ambiguity of her nightclub-singer persona. Following Dietrich’s lead, this hat is paired with glamorous plumage and major faux jewels. Top hat from Worth & Worth, NYC. Earrings and necklace by Butler & Wilson…Photographed at La Mamounia hotel in Marrakech.”
