About the Costume

Sometimes costume designers are commissioned not just to create costumes for a production but to re-create something that previously existed. This was the case with Hollywood icon Marilyn Monroe’s famous rhinestone-studded dress, in which she sang “Happy Birthday” to President Kennedy in 1962 at Madison Square Garden.

For the 2011 mini-series, The Kennedys, costume designer Chris Hardagon was tasked with re-creating this iconic gown for Charlotte Sullivan to wear during her portrayal of Marilyn Monroe. The costume was used again in 2012 by Lana Del Rey in her music video National Anthem.

There is a great behind-the-scenes video from The Kennedys about the making of this costume (about the 7:36 mark).
