This showgirl costume, designed by Travilla, was first worn by Marilyn Monroe as Cherie in the 1956 film Bus Stop. It was worn again several years later in 1959 in The Man Who Understood Women, on Leslie Caron as Ann Garantier.
This costume was eventually purchased by Debbie Reynolds, who amassed a very large Hollywood costume collection over the years. She sold her collection recently in a series of auctions. This costume was sold on December 3rd, 2011, for $230,000.
