The name alone I'm sure evokes a number of reactions... for those of you who are fans of this fashion icon would be happy to know that from Nov 10-13 there will be a two day photo exhibition at New York's Milk Gallery. There they will show her "transformation from angelic teenager to the glamorous, sophisticated, platinum sexpot that became her visual legacy." Check out WWD to see the full story!
She managed to embrace scandalous innocence in a way that no other woman since has managed to accomplish. Whether you love to hate her, love her films, photographs, or hearing about the latest scandal, Marilyn Monroe had her own style that people to this day still emanate.
Dior has re-created this black dress which will also be part of an exhibition preview today and today only! A great quote from Staley of the Staley-Wise Gallery in New York, about Marilyn, accurately sums up her charm... "The key to it is that she has been so photographed, and was so photogenic that, in a way, people are drawn to her image even more than her movies."
If you are in and around New York, head over to Milk Gallery and have a look for yourself!
“I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.” Marilyn Monroe
