About the Costume

Jennifer Jones first wore this costume as Bernadette Soubirous in the 1943 film The Song of Bernadette. Marilyn Monroe wore the dress again in a series of photos by Milton Greene, often referred to as “The Dutch Girl” or “The Peasant Girl.” The 1956 photo shoot was meant to show Marilyn’s potential as a more dramatic actress. It was very common at the time for old studio costumes to be reused in photo shoots in addition to films.
