MARILYN MONROE Costume test for unfinished Something's Gotta Give 1962. Costume by JEAN LOUIS. Marilyn was looking her very best here, slim, refreshed & stunning.The studio tried to pretend the opposite. From CREATING THE ILLUSION by Jay Jorgensen & Donald L Snoggins 2015. A fabulous book. JEAN LOUIS is FINALLY GIVEN HIS DUE HERE! He created Marlene Dietrich's iconic Las Vegas gowns, Marilyn's 'Happy Birthday' gown. And BOB MACKIE was HIS UNDERSTUDY (Minkshmink)
Gotta love her..........stole a moment to enjoy a "Salted Caramel Mocha" (thank you, Starbucks) in th backyard this morning as I watered. Hummingbirds, butterflys, lots of new blooms, a gentle breeze, and the sound of the waterfalls were a delight.
