MARILYN MONROE Costume test for unfinished Something's Gotta Give 1962. Costume by JEAN LOUIS. Marilyn was looking her very best here, slim, refreshed & stunning.The studio tried to pretend the opposite. From CREATING THE ILLUSION by Jay Jorgensen & Donald L Snoggins 2015. A fabulous book. JEAN LOUIS is FINALLY GIVEN HIS DUE HERE! He created Marlene Dietrich's iconic Las Vegas gowns, Marilyn's 'Happy Birthday' gown. And BOB MACKIE was HIS UNDERSTUDY (Minkshmink)
Finding inspiration from traditional pop art techniques to compose a final structure for Marilyn Monroe. This is page allowed me to also look at different aspects within pop art and use combined colours to create a visual large-scale.
The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe as far as I have learned this is the most accurate book of Marilyn's real life, not what people imagined or thought up or told stories about but what actually happened. She is far more relatable then most people would imagine. This is by far one of my favorite books I have ever read in my life and although it's long ITS SO WORTH IT!
"I once had love for a man who had a son from a previous marriage." he said: "If we were to marry + anything should happen to me such as dropping dead- it would be very bad for him". "why? I asked. he said: "It wouldn't be right for him to be brought up by a woman like you.. It would be unfair to him.". "After he left I cried all night.. I knew I had to leave him." MM 1953
