Look-of-the-Day

For this “Pink Wednesday,” we’re featuring the most iconic pink dress in history: Marilyn Monroe’s shocking pink gown in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.  Marilyn plays a gold-digging dancer named Lorelei Lee, who’s real profession should be husband-hunting in this 1953 romantic comedy.  Designed by William Travilla, Monroe sported this strapless frock while performing her famous number, “Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend.” (We guess she never had a dog?)  It’s accessorized nicely with matching opera-length gloves, a platinum blonde bob, and oodles of glittering diamonds!  Fun Fact: If this isn’t the most famous pink dress of all-time, it’s certainly the most expensive.  The gown was put up for auction in 2010, and was bought for a staggering $310,000!
