Both ladies' "Paris" suits were simply to die for, but Marilyn's especially was an absolute show-stealer, in some ways outshining even the much more extravagant and famous red sparkly "Little Rock" and hot pinks "Diamonds" dresses in pure elegance.
Although Jane Russell's Dorothy is often overshadowed in popular imagination by Marilyn's Lorelei (she was actually the bigger star at the time, and paid several times Marilyn's fee!), her outfits were just as stylish, given a sharp elegance to match her wise-cracking character.
The skirt below is another on my to-make list - just love that high-waist detail!
The first of Dorothy's swing coats, black and white check with shaped lapels and vibrant yellow lining, worn over a black halterneck jumpsuit.
The velvet trouser outfit with wide lilac cummerbund sash and green sweater - a study in colour and texture. And Dorothy's white swing jacket with blue polka dot lining is just a dream.
One of the less well-known costumes from the film, but one of my favourites, is this sapphire number from the scene which contains one of Marilyn's best lines (and one which I read she had a hand in scripting).
Don't you see? A man being rich is like a girl being pretty. You might not marry a girl just because she's pretty, but my goodness, doesn't it help?
