Billy Travilla was the man who costumed Marilyn in most of her movie hits including: Don't Bother to Knock (1952), Monkey Business (1952), Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953), How to Marry a Millionaire (1953), River of No Return (1954), There's No Business Like Show Business (1954), The Seven Year Itch (1955), and Bus Stop (1956).
Travilla admitted that he and Marilyn dated despite the fact that he had been married at the time: "She would make any guy feel like a king. She only looked at you. She never looked around at anyone else."
Travilla, who was one of Marilyn's personal fashion designers, once named her "the easiest person I ever worked with."
