I began researching into 40's and 50's glamour as inspiration for upcoming projects for my final year of uni. I have always loved the dress worn by Marilyn Monroe in 'Gentlemen prefer Blonde's' in the number 'Diamond's are a girl's best friend'. The designer/costume designer is William Travilla and he created many of Marilyn's clothes. The images I have placed above also represent his talent of fashion illustration. The image of Marilyn in the white dress (worn in 'The Seven Year Itch') is beautiful how he captures the flow and motion he wants the dress to express while its being worn.
The pink dress was obviously created only for Marilyn as he captures her perfectly along with the texture and visual of the dress.
