J’ai trouvé là une préface pour un livre que j’écrirai peut-être… si la modestie ne m’étouffe pas chaque fois que j’entre chez un libraire ou dans une bibliothèque et que les bras me tombent devant tant de choses écrites et par les plus grands!
« Je ne parle pas des vivants, parce que la mort et le temps n’ont pas pu accomplir leur travail de faucheur, de crible, de critique et d’arbitre; et je parle des morts comme s’ils étaient vivants ».
« La liberté consiste moins à faire sa volonté qu’à ne pas être soumis à celle d’autrui. »
(Extrait du Discours sur l’inégalité )
She wore men’s suits way before St-Laurent made icons out of them… She would be 112 years old but for us, she is immortal.
With her cartoon eyebrows arching over her half-shut eyes and those sculpted cheekbones, German-born actress Marlene Dietrich was made for the screen. Working with director Josef von Sternberg, who knew just how to cast her pronounced features into graphic highlights and shadows for maximum drama, she filmed her biggest box-office hits in America between 1930 and 1935. In her later career, she worked with all-star directors Orson Wells, Alfred Hitchcock, Billy Wilder, and Fritz Lang, among others.
Dietrich was nominated for her first and only Oscar for her role as the cabaret singer Amy Jolly von Sternberg’s in 1930’s somewhat scandalous film Morocco, in which she dresses in drag and kisses a woman.
She famously rejected the Nazis offer to become the Third Reich’s poster girl, then became an American citizen in 1939.
And all the while her style toyed with expectations: At times she would appear in public wearing tuxedos, men’s suits, or driving outfits, other moments she’d choose Lanvin gowns, mink stoles, or Dior. In her last years, Azzedine Alaïa custom made her clothing (before he was famous).
Openly bisexual, Dietrich wed little-known director Rudolf Sieber in 1923, and stayed married till his death in 1976. Meanwhile, she had numerous affairs, and claimed John F. Kennedy, Yul Brenner, and John Wayne as lovers. She died in 1992, 90 years after the boundary-pushing lady was born on today’s date in 1901.
Boyish or girlish, she was unique!

“I wrote to find beauty and purpose, to know that love is possible and lasting and real, to see day lilies and swimming pools, loyalty and devotion, even though my eyes were closed, and all that surrounded me was a darkened room. I wrote because that was who I was at the core, and if I was too damaged to walk around the block, I was lucky all the same. Once I got to my desk, once I started writing, I still believed anything was possible.”
― Alice Hoffman
