Marjorie Oelrichs Duchin (June 23, 1908 – August 3, 1937), nicknamed "Bubbles", was an American socialite. The daughter of Marjorie Ramely Oelrichs (nee Turnbull) (1883-1952) and Charles de Loosey Oelrichs (1882-1973), she became the wife of dance bandleader Eddy Duchin after the two met at the Waldorf, and wed on June 5, 1935. A well-known New York and Newport beauty, she was described by Vogue as having "waxen skin and eyebrows like butterflies." An Edward Steichen photograph of Oelrichs was included in an advertisement for Pond's cold cream in a 1926 copy of Ladies' Home Journal. Oelrichs died six days after the 1937 birth of the couple's son, Peter Duchin.

A maternal aunt was suffragist Alison Turnbull Hopkins and the poet Blanche Oelrichs was her paternal aunt.

Kim Novak portrayed Oelrichs in the 1956 Hollywood biopic The Eddy Duchin Story opposite Tyrone Power as Duchin.
