About the Costume

Costume designer Travilla created this beautiful gray suit for Ginger Rogers to wear as Gloria Marlow in the 1952 film Dreamboat. Marilyn Monroe wore it the following year as Pola Debevoise in How to Marry a Millionaire. The costume underwent some changes for use in Millionaire. A belt was added, and the fur around the collar was changed. The distinctive folds in the skirt are also less apparent, though it is unknown if this is just from general wear over time. A behind-the-scenes photo shows the skirt detailing in slightly better condition than it appears in the film.
