About Marilyn Monroe Dresses

The upward breeze from a subway grate made a pretty dress into an icon of cinematic history. Marilyn Monroe dresses such as the one from the 1955 film "The Seven Year Itch" are probably some of the most famous dresses of all time. The ivory cocktail dress created by designer William Travilla features a classic 1950s cut. The halter-style bodice has a plunging neckline and fits closely to the waist before flowing into a softly pleated skirt that reaches the mid-calf. If you want the same look as Monroe, tie the narrow belt into a neat bow at the waist. The immense popularity of the Marilyn Monroe halter dress means it now appears in numerous colors, not just white. If you love bright hues, wear a shocking pink Marilyn Monroe style dress inspired by her role in "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes," another Travilla creation. Whether you are looking for a garment to pair with a peroxide wig for a costume party or are taking advantage of a flattering shape for your bridesmaids, you can find a wide selection of Marilyn Monroe dresses on eBay.
