In the movie Gentleman Prefer Blondes Marilyn Monroe wears an iconic gold, pleated halter dress by Travilla. Of course, you know that Monroe was in another movie called The Seven Year Itch wear she wore a white halter dress that she had trouble keeping down around her legs. What do I do with all of my nonsense information about dresses like this? I put them to good use, like when I spotted a pleated metallic cocktail dress on Amazon that was ON SALE for $34.99 which I could see any glamazon like Monroe wearing. It looks like a mesh of her two most iconic dresses. In this way, you can copy Marilyn’s dress without looking like you’re wearing a Halloween costume.
