    Marilyn Monroe personal Grecian-style cocktail dress. (ca. 1950s-1960s) A breezy below-the-knee Grecian-style cocktail dress constructed of eau de nil silk jersey. A continuous slender silk bead forms the scoop neckline and slender shoulder straps. The delicately gathered bodice is cinched by an integral strand of piping and a second-tier piping sash with flowing ribbon ends tied in a bow below the bust, giving the skirt a gentle draped effect. The shoulder straps converge in a low cut back line, bisected by the sash to create elegant draping. Exhibiting light browning to shoulder straps from age visible only upon close inspection. Fabric remains supple and fresh. The elegant Grecian dress remains in otherwise fine condition. Provenance: Christie's The Property of Marilyn Monroe, Oct 27 & 28, 1999, Lot 103.
