Cinema Sentries and Hal Leonard Performing Arts Publishing Group have teamed up to award one lucky reader Andrew Hansford’s Dressing Marilyn: How a Hollywood Icon Was Styled by William Travilla.dressing-marilyn

Available for sale on April 3, Dressing Marilyn looks at the relationship between the iconic star and award-winning costume designer William Travilla, which was both professional and personal.

Sentry Michelle Prather's review reveals that "in addition to the Travilla Archive’s collection of dresses, patterns, sketches, personal diaries, and tapes, Hansford relies on newspaper articles and television interviews to round out this colorful account of how one rather guarded, limelight-weary but incredibly witty gentleman created the look for the iconic images of Marilyn Monroe that are forever burned into our collective memory."
