"This is a fascinating book with hundreds of rare and never-before published photos. The insights from the designers, co-stars, and Marilyn herself, offer a behind-the-screens glimpse at one of the most extraordinary people of the twentieth century. Marilyn in Fashion is an absolute joy and a fitting tribute to the style evolution of one of Hollywood’s ultimate icons."
“We love the in-depth look at Marilyn's dresses, hair, makeup and accessories, and her relationships with different designers, from Norman Norell to Jean Louis.”
“Putting the spotlight on the designers that decorated Marilyn's famous figure, "Marilyn in Fashion" is an intriguing look at the way Monroe controlled her self-image via fashion. Full of full-color photos and divided in sections by designers such as Oleg Cassini and Emilio Pucci, the book tells the rarely told stories behind iconic looks such as the white dress she wore over the subway grate in "The Seven Year Itch" and the sequined gown she wore to sing "Happy Birthday" to President John Kennedy.”
"Marilyn in Fashion . . . proves who really wrote the book on 'iconic style.'"
