This is a Luis Estevez designed gown, a perfect replica of the dress featured in the John Singer Sargent painting “Madame X”. In the original painting American born Madame Pierre Gautreau posed for Sargent’s infamous painting, which caused a huge scandal at the time. In 1960 Dina Merrill posed in a replica of the same gown designed by Luis Estevez for fashion photographer Milton H. Greene for Life magazine.

Looks like a dress worn by Marilyn Monroe too?

You need a few curves to pull it off but who wouldn't want to try it?
