“She wore orange - flaming orange - in “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.” Now that’s a color almost nobody can carry off, and when I heard about it I was livid - ‘what are they trying to do to poor Marilyn?’ Jane Russell, next to Marilyn in that shipboard scene, wears classic black and looks great. That is, if you even look at her. Marilyn is gorgeous, like a glowing, palpitating orange flame, in that dress. How wrong I was!”
