About this product
- DescriptionWilliam Travilla is one of the best costume designers of all time and Marilyn Monroe his most famous client. Marilyn's Dresses will focus on the striking dresses Travilla designed for Marilyn, from his early work on the thriller Don't Bother to Kck and the gorgeous pink dress 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 dresses, plus exclusive and never before-seen extracts from interviews with Travilla, this book offers a fresh insight into the golden age of Hollywood.
