|Repaint and Re-Style by Juan Albuerne
Costume: Marilyn Timeless Treasures Series by Mattel
|Marilyn Monroe, a shining star from a glamorous era, she is still adored for her entrancing beauty and unique talent. Throughout her extraordinary career, she showed her prowess as both a gifted comedienne and a serious actress. Her 31 movies continue to enchant a legion of fans while captivating new ones.
In 1953, Marilyn starred as Pola Debevoise in the romantic comedy How To Marry a Millionaire. Three man-hunting Manhattan models -Pola, Loco and Schatze- join together to trap three rich, eligible bachelors. In their sublet penthouse, the sophisticated trio pool their meager resouces and begin their search. The terribly nearsighted Pola is convinced that "Men aren't attentive to girls who wear glasses" and choose beauty over myopia. In the end, Pola finds love and money in a man who finds her completely lovable in spectacles!
|ABOUT THE DRESS
Marilyn wears a stunning one-shouldered evening gown of deep magenta charmeuse, featuring a long slim skirt and sweeping train. Glittering accents sparkle at her waist and shoulder. This gown is authentic to the very famous scene in which her image is gloriously reflected in a three-way mirror.
The second costume, inspired by the modeling scene in the film, includes a bright coral bathing suit and matching cover-up, embellished with silvery lame insets. A shimmering brooch on her bathing suit provides the final perfect touch of glamour.
