A new book...
illustrates Marilyn's most iconic dresses
designed by little know designer, William Travilla.
He created the infamous white halter neck dress
from the film
The Seven Year Itch...
and also the stunning pink gown from the film,
Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend.
The late designer says of the dress in the book:
"Apart from two side seams, the dress was folded into
shape rather like cardboard. Any other girl would have
looked like she was wearing cardboard, but on screen
I swear you would have thought Marilyn had on a pale, thin
piece of silk. Her body was so fabulous it still came through."
