The famous dress that Marilyn Monroe wore to seductively serenade President Kennedy with “Happy Birthday” in 1962. Jean Louis designed the dress as he designed his 'nude illusion' costumes for Marlene Dietrich, aiming for the effect of her wearing only sequins and beads on bare skin. He achieved this partly by dying the fabrics to match each star's skin tone.
