Marilyn Monroe - Gentlemen Prefer Blondes

I decided to make this fantastically stylish iconic dress into a two piece with a modern twist.  The skirt is gathered on both sides which is flattering on all shapes. It has an elasticated waist and comes with a wide sash belt which is tied at the side. The top has asymmetrical gathering at the neckline where you can weave a necklace though. Both are made in an inky black stretchy viscose jersey. This curve hugging outfit fits close to the body with a long tapered mid-calf length skirt. It’s outfits like this that make me truly in love with mid-century design and style!


About the dress…

About the dress…The originally outfit was worn by Marilyn in the film ‘Gentlemen prefer blondes’ in 1953 and was worn with a leopard print cape and matching muff, beige gloves, black beret and a pair of babydoll heels. Absolutely stunning outfit. This dress was another William Travilla’s fantastic creations and I absolutely love it.

About the cape and muff…

This listing is for the leopard cape and matching hand muff. Made in a soft leopard velboa and lined with pale gold taffeta. The cape is done up with a little hook and eye at the back and drapes down to 44″ in length. The matching hand muff has a little compartment inside to put a lipstick etc in. Look absolutely stunning with the matching Gentlemen Prefer Blondes top and skirt or even can be paired up with just about any wiggle dress.
