The Jean Louis vintage dress was worn by Monroe during her unforgettable birthday performance for President JFK in 1962. But whatever trends come and go, and regardless of who tries to emulate her, Monroe will always be iconic - a sentiment shared by CR’s Founder and Creative Director Carine Roitfeld: 'She’s a dream cover star for any fashion editor and someone I’ve always admired for being a trailblazer in creating a captivating personal brand that extended beyond her work. This is a key facet of most celebrities today, but Marilyn was one of the first to do it. I embraced the unique challenge of imagining a modern photoshoot for such a classic star. The looks I curated with Gaultier feature some of my favorite designers working today—since Marilyn has always been known as a trendsetter—while still embodying her timeless elegance and sense of empowerment.'
