Marilyn Monroe: The Legacy of a Legend
Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour, Lots Road, London SW10 0XE
A worldwide tour: London from 25 May until 20 June 2016.
A little piece of 1950s Hollywood glamour at Chelsea’s Imperial Wharf (seen through the lens of style, photography and film).
Marilyn Monroe was the epitome of Hollywood style, beauty and one of the most famous, Iconic and charismatic women of the 20th century. Its 50 years since her very sad death, so an exhibition of all things ‘Marilyn’ was ‘way’ overdue! A wonderful collection of Marilyn’s personal artefacts that truly sum up a complete legend!
A rare opportunity to see original costumes from classic films such as ‘Niagara’ ‘Bus Stop’ and ‘No Business Like Show Business’ you will also get to feast your eyes on her iconic sheer beaded little black dress from the classic movie ‘Some Like It Hot’.
Not only will you get to see Marilyn’s life through the varied collection of her film costumes but also through some of her personal journals, hand written letters, poetry and even drawings, you will even get to see one of her cool little red sporty numbers! (Want one!).
The exhibition is set up in collaboration with a major auction due to take place in LA in November 2016 and the last chance to see these artifacts all together before they get split up for ever and sold separately!
So get your wallet out and start bidding, prices seemed to start from a mere $60,000 and rising..
