Bob Mackie, the 82-year-old gay fashion legend who did the original sketch for the Jean Louis gown that Marilyn Monroe wore when crooning “Happy Birthday” to JFK in 1962, has spoken.
Mackie told EW.com:
I thought it was a big mistake. [Marilyn] was a goddess. A crazy goddess, but a goddess. She was just fabulous. Nobody photographs like that. And it was done for her. It was designed for her. Nobody else should be seen in that dress.
