The story behind Marilyn Monroe’s iconic dresses!
William Travilla is one of the best costume designers of all time—and Marilyn Monroe was his most famous client. This gorgeous coffee-table book presents the striking dresses that Travilla created for Monroe, from his early work on the thriller Don’t Bother to Knock, to the gorgeous pink gown in which Marilyn sang “Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend,” to the legendary white dress from The Seven Year Itch, which arguably contributed to the collapse of Marilyn’s marriage to Joe DiMaggio. Featuring Travilla’s original sketches, rare costume test shots, dress patterns, photographs of Marilyn wearing the costumes, and exclusive extracts from interviews with Travilla, this book offers fresh insight into the golden age of Hollywood . . . and Monroe’s glamorous image.
