Marilyn Monroe photographed behind the scenes of Bus Stop (1956) by Milton H. Greene. She felt that many of the original costumes chosen were inauthentic to Chérie, so she took a hands on approach to help find the right pieces. Joshua Logan, the direction, was very impressed with her desire for authentication.
While in New York on her year long hiatus to better herself, professionally and personally, she inserted herself in the study of Method Acting. Her hard work certainly paid off. The New York Times reported, “Hold onto your chairs, everybody, and get set for a rattling surprise. Marilyn Monroe has finally proved herself an actress in Bus Stop!”

If you do not mind, I would love to hear your thoughts, insights, and analysis of the clothes in a YouTube video called "Oriental Air Hostesses (1956)" by British Pathé
Link to the video
The footage is super interesting, the Chinese stewardesses are wearing very well constructed standard 1950s cheongsam and aoqun. I was especially delighted by the center front closing jacket with the hourglass silhouette, which is often forgotten about when discussing 1950s mainland Chinese fashion.
From the mainland magazine 服庄, 1958.
The voiceover is a bit cringy though, a white dude calling the Japanese stewardesses' kimono "exotic" and "something that would've been worn in the East centuries ago" (that style of kimono is pretty 19th/early 20th century I'm sure) makes me uncomfortable. Well, that is to be expected and at least they didn't say anything overtly racist, so I guess that's good? I have low standards.
