    Marilyn Monroe, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes

    Oh sure, there’s the white halter/steam vent dress. But, Marilyn never looked better — or more in her element — than dripping in diamonds and men in this floor-length, shocking pink, satin frock created by costume designer William Travilla and matching pink gloves as Lorelei Lee. Later copied by Madge herself in the "Material Girl" video, the original sold at auction for $310,000 in 2010. (And yes, ladies, this is the only time a large ass-bow has ever worked).
