The Fashionable Life of Dina Merrill (1923–2017)


Tuesday, May 22, 2018 6:30PM


Marjorie Merriweather Post’s youngest daughter, Nedinia Marjorie Hutton, known professionally as “Dina Merrill” began her career as a fashion model working for Vogue during the 1940s and 1950s. Frequently working with photographers John Rawlings and Richard Avedon, Merrill appeared in countless editorials and features throughout her life. As a film actress, Merrill was dressed by top costume designers including Helen Rose and Charles Le Maire. Later, Merrill entered the beauty and cosmetics industry with a vested interest in creating products for others suffering from sensitive skin. Though she adhered to a simple idiom: “I like clothes that I wear—that don’t wear me,” Dina Merrill remains entwined with twentieth century Fashion as she epitomized American elegance and ease in her public wardrobe.
