When Marilyn Monroe sang happy birthday in front of 15,000 guests at New York’s Madison Square Garden, she was wearing the sheer, figure-hugging dress which featured more than 2,500 hand-stitched Swarovski crystals.
The custom-made Jean Louis gown featured 2,500 hand-stitched Swarovski crystals.
Her dress became one of the most recognisable of all of Marilyn’s outfits. It was eventually auctioned off in 2016 for a staggering $4.8 million.
