About the Costume

Costume designer Helen Rose made this adorable polka-dotted dress. Rose was hired on at MGM in 1943 after famed designer Adrian departed. While she designed many gowns over the years, her best-known work was the wedding gown of Grace Kelly when she married Prince Rainier of Monaco.

Like all designers, Rose often recycled her creations. The gown above was seen twice in 1953. It was first worn by Denise Darcel as Gigi Mignon in the film Dangerous When Wet. The second time it was seen on an extra in the film Easy to Love.
