Marlene Dietrich (27 December 1901) did everything an artist could do: Actress during the Golden years of Hollywood, singer and entertainer during the World War II and, most of all, role model for many artists during her career and even after her death (6 May 1992, Paris).
Here some music icons inspired by the legendary german icon:
Dietrich's pose in Shanghai Express (1932) inspired Madonna in her iconic video ''Vogue'' (1990).
Madonna performs ''Like a Virgin'' during her ''The Girlie Show'' tour dressed as Dietrich in her famous man's suit and singing with a curious german accent. She ended the performance singing some fragments of ''Falling in Love Again'', a Dietrich's hymn.
