A NEW TYPE OF SUIT has invaded the wardrobe of every smart woman in Hollywood. Marlene Dietrich, Paramount star in “The Devil is a Woman,” wears a dinner suit of black costume velvet, a fabric which will persist appearing even through the summer months. The skirt is split moderately in the front to assist in walking. The blouse is tucked, starched organdy and the coat follows Travis Banton’s belief in the smock influence for swagger coats of this type. Miss Dietrich wears a formalized felt beret trimmed with a branch of glycerined ostrich feathers, and will use a silver fox muff with chic disregard for the season.
