I have just stumbled across an Auction house Juliens Auction that sold some Hollywood glitz back in the summer, if only I had found them before the auction back in June( I would probably be homeless now!!)
This is Marilyn Monroe's leotard.......(defiantly homeless) and the description in the auction catalogue is...
Leotard of chiffon and net with fitted fishnet overlay, rhinestone and sequin embellishments throughout, hook and eye closure at back, label reads, "20th Century Fox/M.Monroe." This is believed to be the costume designed by William Travilla and intended to be worn for Marilyn to sing "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend" in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes 1953. But deemed inappropriate by the censors.
Loving the vintage suitcase.
