    Bjork's swan dress was but a rip-off of Marlene's swan dress. Clifton Webb, Marlene Dietrich, and Elizabeth Allan at a Hollywood theme party held by Basil Rathbone and wife Ouida Bergere in 1935. The theme was "The Person You Most Admire." Dietrich chose Leda of the famous fable, while her escort for the night, Elizabeth Allen, went as Dietrich.

    Clifton Webb, Marlene Dietrich and Elizabeth Allan at Basil Rathbone’s Halloween party, 1935.- Does anyone think this Swan dress may have been the inspiration for Bjorks ill-fated Oscars dress???

    The first Swan Dress: Marlene Dietrich arrived at basil rathbone's costume party with Clifton Webb and Elizabeth Allen on each arm and an elegant swan gown draped across her body. oh...and the swan wasn't white. each feather was dyed to match the pale blue of marlene's eyes.

Love Bjork, love this dress. I was always amazed that it featured in every Worst Dressed List going.
