|MARILYN MONROE at MADISON SQUARE GARDEN|
|Repaint and Re-Style by Juan Albuerne
Costume: Marilyn Timeless Treasures Series by Mattel
|Marilyn Monroe was singularly beautiful, a radiant star who personified Hollywood allure and glamour. An icon of the silver screen, she became a luminous star of pop culture.
One unforgettable spring evening, she took to the stage. She wore a shimmering dress, delicate as her whispery voice and light as a kiss. A lovely series of contradictions, vulnerable and innocent, knowing and sexy, Marilyn sang a tribute with all her heart and soul. This remarkable moment remains forever an indelible image of our beloved Marilyn.
The bash was held May 19, 1962 at Madison Square Garden. Peter Lawford was making fun of Marilyn's perpetual lateness by giving her a really long introduction, during which she should have come on stage several times.
In the middle of his latest attempt, she sauntered on stage.
He introduced her as "The late Marilyn Monroe".
Then, she sang her famous "Happy Birthday" to John F. Kennedy.
|ABOUT THE DRESS
Marilyn's dress was a sheer nylon slip with 2500 rhinestones sewn on it.
The dress was so snug that she had to be sewn into it!
This famous gown was the highlight of Christie's last celebrity sale of the Millennium.
