The most unforgettable dresses of all time

Marilyn Monroe 1955 in travilla

The dress has a simple design. It is a light-colored ivory cocktail dress in a style which was in vogue in the 1950s and 1960s. The halter-like bodice has a plunging neckline and is made ​​of two pieces of pleated fabric that come together behind the neck, leaving the wearer’s arms, shoulders and back bare. The waistband falls immediately under the breasts, and stands out from the top. Below the waistband is a long pleated skirt.

The dress up has been described as one of the iconic images of the 20th century.
