Marlene Dietrich at the Hollywood Canteen in the 40's. Marlene volunteered her services helping out, dancing with smitten soldiers. Marlene went to the front and entertained the allied troops for years also. She was very well loved for that, & after the war was awarded for her service, including receiving France's Legion of Honour medal. (please follow minkshmink on pinterest)
For resort wear milady might well follow the suit of Marlene Dietrich as she appears here from a scene in Desire. Of blue linen, the double-breasted jacket with white pearl buttons tops a short white skirt with an inverted pleat in the center of the front. Marlene's shoes are white with a wide, crushed strap of blue kid across the instep.
