"Included is a very significant dress worn by screen icon Marilyn Monroe in her final film Something’s Gotta Give (20th Century, 1962). The figure hugging silk crepe dress is printed with scattered painterly roses in shades of persimmon and deep cherry with a plunging V back. The interior of the studio constructed dress has hand finished details, is lined with ivory soufflé and has boning to the waistline. Jean Louis was the costume designer on the film. Monroe wore this dress when her character, who had been proclaimed dead but returns from being stranded on an island for five years, is introduced in the film and reunited with her children who do not realize she is their mother. Monroe was fired from the film and when the studio tried to replace her with Lee Remick, the film’s leading man Dean Martin refused to finish the film without Monroe. Her untimely death came less than a month after being let go from the production. The dress can be seen in numerous newspaper articles announcing her death."
Thanks go to Mr. George Vreeland Hill for the update.
I wrote about the dress when it aired on the show Final Offer 3 years ago.
Mistake turning down 500K for Marilyn Monroe's dress?
I hope Deborah of 'Antique Dress' was able to make something from her investment.
