“Gentlemen Prefer Blondes” Costume #2
Year of Jane Russell: Day 197
This photo of Jane’s costume #2 in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes is a simple brown slip, which she is never shown wearing in the film. The accompanying paperwork states that the slip is laying on a chair with the shoes on the ground, which is reflected in the final film and shows just how much attention to detail goes into productions.
In the film, Jane grabs the slip off the chair reaches into the slip to pull out the straps. When she does this, the slip does appear to have boning, so even though Jane is not wearing the straps in the photo, I do think it’s the same slip that’s in the film.
Also visible hanging from Jane’s truck is a brown crepe dress that we’ll see a few scenes later.
I love how she ends the scene by casually throwing it over her shoulder.
