San Francisco, Aug 18 (IANS) 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 Centre 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, reports Efe news.
“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 Centre said in a statement.
