MARILYN MONROE PERSONALLY WORN DRESS
A dress worn by Marilyn Monroe in both her private and public life. Made of ivory-colored silk and simple in design with short sleeves and a slightly gathered scoop-neckline, this piece has an interior label reading Designed by Jax, one of Marilyn's favorite brands. Three black and white images of MM wearing this dress on two different occasions are included and illustrate how a plain frock on someone like Marilyn Monroe becomes a spectacular ensemble!
This piece was originally sold at "The Personal Property of Marilyn Monroe" auction Christie's had in October 1999; Lot 132, Page 105 of that catalogue, though it was not pictured as it was part of a group of clothing.
