Fall 1951, modeling for Saks Fifth Avenue; clothing by Don Loper (1906-1972)
1. For a 1951 magazine layout, Marilyn models three Loper designs at his salon. This formal is in pale blue chiffon. The shoulder treatments feature decorative beadwork, and there is beading at the waist. There is further sparkle in a subtle scattering of beads placed under the top layer of the skirt. In the back, two long panels of the dress material descend from the shoulders. These could be worn flowing down the back or as a build-in wrap, as Marilyn indicated.

2. A hostess gown of silk is in dusty rose with forest green elbow-length cuffs and accents on the stand up collar. The green follows the neckline down the bodice in a narrow sliver (that includes covered buttons) to the belted waist.
