Also on exhibit is the million-dollar dress Marilyn wore on her honeymoon with Joe DiMaggio. It is one of the highlights of The Hollywood Museum’s permanent collection. In addition to the permanent collection, items from the Scott Fortner Marilyn Monroe Collection and the Greg Schreiner Marilyn Monroe Collection are featured in the exhibit, including film costumes from “The Prince and The Showgirl,” “There’s No Business Like Show Business” and clothing and furs from Marilyn’s personal wardrobe, including the brilliant green Pucci jersey top.
Highlighting the exhibit are exclusive photos by world-renowned photographer George Barris, who shot Marilyn’s last photo sitting while collaborating on a book at the time of her death 50 years ago.
The exhibit also includes original works of art by famed celebrity artists, original photographs, including the legendary “red velvet” nude photographs shot by Tom Kelly, and a vast photograph collection of her childhood, family and early modeling career when she was still Norma Jeane Baker; and much more.
The exhibit continues through Sept. 8.
