This week we honor classic beauty Marlene Dietrich as our throwback Thursday.

The German born beauty first rose to fame in her native country and then quickly became just as famous in the US. Nominated for an Academy Award and considered a style icon, Dietrich broke barriers and was known for her innovative beauty secrets on screen.

What made Dietrich so iconic were not only her stunning looks, but also her bold style. Aside from her bold lip colors, thin eyebrows, and deep eyeshadows, the actress was also known for breaking the traditional stereotypes with roles that challenged typical gender roles.
