    Apparently, this was a press photo (EDIT: taken at the St. Regis Hotel in NYC), and I am shocked! Marlene Dietrich certainly didn’t direct the lighting because it’s quite candid and shows her age. These kinds of photos, however, are my favorites because they give a sense of how MD would have looked if one were to spot her out in public—stunning even without studio tricks! As for the dress, it seems to be an Irene-designed one that MD wore several times & is now stored at FIDM Museum (see a photo of it in its current state here).
