1930s Marlene Dietrich look-alike in a saree

This advert from 1936 is from a Lucky Strike advert (hence the cigarette I suppose). I don’t know who the model is, but she looks like Marlene Dietrich wearing a fabulous orange saree (perhaps a wedding one – anyone know enough about bridal sarees to confirm?). I guess that was probably intentional, Dietrich was one of the biggest stars of the 1930s so her look must have been emulated everywhere… I particularly love her manicure!
