Marilyn Perfection

I was doing some image searches on fashion and ran across this old favorite of mine … I hadn’t seen it in a while and it is oddly mesmerizing. Obviously Marilyn was pretty special — but the pink on red color palette is also pretty unusual and adds a really interesting energy to the visuals.

Diamonds Are A Girl’s Best Friend” is from the movie Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, starring Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell and directed by Howard Hawks.

The dress was created by costume designer William Travilla and has subsequently become the subject of numerous imitations, significantly from Madonna in the music video for her song “Material Girl“. The dress even has it’s own Wikipedia page: Link

Just watch and enjoy:
