Marilyn in Fashion: The Enduring Influence of Marilyn Monroe
She was an incandescent movie star, legendary sex symbol, and a woman whose private life fascinated the public—but the story never before showcased about Marilyn Monroe is her enduring impact on fashion. From the revealing nude sheath worn to sing “Happy Birthday” to JFK to the pleated white dress from The Seven Year Itch, Marilyn’s looks defied the 1950s era of poodle skirts and marked her as a fashion icon ahead of her time. In this book, exhaustively researched text discusses her signature styles and work with designers. Featuring a dazzling array of photos (most never before published or not seen in decades), Marilyn in Fashion traces the style evolution of the ultimate Hollywood icon.
