California exhibition to provide glimpse into Marilyn Monroe’s wardrobe

Beverly Hills, USA, Aug 18 (EFE).- An exhibition on dresses and costumes worn by legendary Hollywood actor Marilyn Monroe is all set to open its doors to the public on Saturday at the Paley Center in Beverly Hills, California.

Clothes worn by the iconic actor, as well as beautiful, large-format photographs of Monroe by her friend, famed fashion and celebrity photographer Milton H. Greene, were on display at the press review on Friday evening, an efe-epa journalist reported.

“The mere mention of her name conjures up a million dazzling images, flickers of light that capture the incandescent glamour of arguably Hollywood’s greatest icon. The legend of Marilyn Monroe continues to fascinate us decades after she first entranced audiences,” the Paley Center said in a statement on Saturday.

The exhibition, to run until Sep. 30, will also display signature costumes from Monroe’s films such as Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, The Prince and the Showgirl, and How to Marry a Millionaire, and personal artifacts such as her heavily hand-annotated script from the 1955’s The Seven Year Itch, wardrobe pieces, and a unique historic video from the Paley Archive, chronicling the icon’s contributions to television, the statement added.
