All Eyes On William Travilla [Part 1]

For those of you who won't be familiar with the name of William Travilla, he was one of Hollywood's best and most sought after designers. Although he worked in Hollywood for decades and dressed such legendary stars as Sharon Tate and Diahann Carroll,  he is most fondly remembered for the astounding gowns he created for the ultimate film legend .... Ms. Marilyn Monroe. While his gowns were beautiful I have always found his illustrations as equally astounding. That is why I was overjoyed when a new book, entitled 'Dressing Marilyn - How a Hollywood icon was styled by William Travilla,' was recently published.

Below are just a selection of the illustrations he made for some of the most famous gowns he created for Marilyn Monroe.

Anyone who wants to find out more about William Travilla should purchase the book [ISBN number 978-1-84796-020-7] published by Goodman Books or visit
