Marilyn Monroe Launch Party

THE STARS COME OUT FOR STARLET

The cool brigade turned up in force to celebrate the launch of Marilyn Monroe: The Legacy of a Legend exhibition. The glamorous cocktail reception and private view was attended by the brightest names from design, fashion and style including US actress and director Linda Gray, hat maker Philip Treacy and interior designers Nina Campbell and Lady Henrietta Spencer-Churchill. Model and DJ Daisy Lowe kept the party atmosphere going on the decks. 

The spectacular exhibition takes a behind-the-scenes look at the life and work of one of the most enduring screen icons. Taking centre stage in the domes were Marilyn’s original costumes from films such as ‘Some Like It Hot’ and ‘No Business Like Show Business’ from the David Gainsborough Roberts collection, alongside some of her favourite jewellery, shoes and accessories. Her journals, handwritten letters, poetry and watercolours from the Lee Strasberg estate revealed her more reflective side.
