Rightly considered America’s favourite blonde bombshell, Marilyn Monroe™ didn’t disappoint on the evening of May 19, 1962. Arriving fashionably late to President Kennedy’s Birthday Celebration, and good-naturedly playing into the joke, she emerged from the darkness and stepped into the spotlight every inch a glamour goddess. Jaws dropped as she removed her fur and revealed the form-fitting, sheer Jean Louis dress underneath. Sheathed in 2,500 rhinestones, she sparkled as never before while singing a most singular rendition of “Happy Birthday.”

Instantly considered a definitive Marilyn Monroe™ moment, fans adore it to this day for capturing the essence of Marilyn. Now, a striking 12 inch high statue captures all the shimmer and sparkle of Marilyn—and the historic moment. Presenting…the Happy Birthday from Marilyn Statue, available only from The Bradford Exchange.

Masterfully sculpted to capture her curves and charisma, this sensational tribute is hand-crafted of the finest artists’ resin and then hand-painted with breathtaking finesse. But what makes it absolutely jaw-dropping is her dress—THE DRESS—the one that stole the show in 1962 and steals it again today. Employing an all new mosaic technique, the dress is adorned with hundreds of hand applied glass fragments that capture the shimmer and spirit of the original.

Measures about 12 inches (30 cm) high.
