About the dress…
Worn by Marilyn Monroe in her final film, Something’s Got to Give in 1962. Designed by Jean Louis. Monroe wore this dress when her character, who was proclaimed dead and returns from being stranded on an island for five years, is introduced in the film and reunited with her children, who do not realize she is their mother. Monroe was fired from the film, and while the studio tried to replace her with Lee Remick, the film’s leading man, Dean Martin, refused to finish the film without Monroe. Monroe’s untimely death came less than a month after she was let go from the production.
This fabric is lovely and light to wear. It is a cross between a double knit and crepe. It has the weight and stretch of a double knit or techno, and the beautiful texture of a crepe! 90% Polyester; 10% Lycra. Machine wash 40c, air dry, no need to iron.
