    Marilyn Monroe showgirl leotard worn during promotion of Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. (MGM, 1953) Vintage original bespoke showgirl leotard constructed of form-fitted nude nylon panels ornamented with sunflower yellow and black sequins, clear and black strung bugle beads, faceted crystal tassels and sprays, with large crystal embellishment ringing the halter collar and culminating in a cluster of brooch-style crystals at the plunging v-neckline of the garment. With zipper and hook and eye back closure, and black lace over nude fabric at the hips. Retaining the tulle remnants that would have constituted capelet and shawl features no longer present. Also retaining internal 20th Century-Fox bias label handwritten in black ink, "Marilyn Monroe". Exhibiting wear, rubbing to base fabric and sequin and bead loss, not detracting from the spectacular effect of the dazzling, glamorous and revealing costume. In very good condition.

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
