Marilyn Monroe’s fashion sense changed over the last two years of her life. She started wearing clothing designed by Emilio Pucci in 1961, as she liked the wrinkle-free silk designs that clung to her body. Upon first discovering Pucci’s designs in a Fifth Avenue store, Marilyn remarked to Susan Strasberg:
“Gee, if it fits the hanger that well, imagine what it could look like on me!”
