As the holidays pass by, there’s still plenty of festivity in the air. Hollywood golden age actress Marlene Dietrich’s 116th birthday is today (Dec. 27), and leave it to Google to pay homage in the grandest way.
The tech giants celebrated Dietrich’s birthday through their Google Doodles campaign, which as we know changes the famed Google logo to match whatever major event corresponds on that particular day. In this case, we see it transformed into a bright blue curtain, as the letter’s of Google are written from stage lights, with Marlene Dietrich posed in the middle donning a sharp blue suit, holding an old school microphone as her stunning blonde hair glistens in the lights.
Google brought the homage to life with the help of artist and drag queen Sasha Velour. Velour took to Twitter to showcase her excitement of being part of the process, saying, “I was so honored to create the artwork for today’s Google Doodle to honor Marlene Dietrich’s 116th Birthday. She’s a true icon.”
