Binding: Softcover
Type: Biography
Synopsis: The Amazing Blonde Woman is the first pictorial biography to examine Dietrich's unique style. Her individuality is revealed in Patrick O'Connor's meticulously-researched text and in the fine selection of over 150 informal, off-screen photographs, many of them never previously published. Included are features on Dietrich's make-up, her remarkable eyebrows and her use of veils, hats, shoes and even handbags. Patrick O'Connor charts Dietrich's evolution from her early years as an actress and cabaret chaneuse in the 1920's through her revolutionary trouser-wearing in the 1930's to her suprising return to the stage in the 1960's, when she became a symbol of glamorous survival and won the hearts of a whole new generation.
