William Travilla designed the orange costume worn by Marilyn Monroe in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953). “It’s a body conscious ruched chiffon gown to just below the nee, where a graceful skirt then flows to the ground. It is trimmed with crystal beading. It enhanced Marilyn’s skin tone, as at that time the color orange wasn’t used often as it tended to wash out skin colorings on women.” – Marilyn Monroe: The Enduring Influence of Marilyn Monroe by Christopher Nickens and George Zeno.
