About the Costume

Travilla designed gowns for several Marilyn Monroe films. He created this pink ensemble for the 1953 film How to Marry a Millionaire, where actress Betty Grable wore it as Loco Dempsey. The gown was used the next year again in 1954, in There’s No Business Like Show Business, where Robin Raymond wore it as Lillian Sawyer. Shoulder straps were added to give it a slightly different look.
