I am so looking forward to this new exhibition, as featured in todays Evening Standard. It is opening at The American Museum in Britain, in Bath, next month, but there are talk about bringing it to London and I jolly well hope the do. If not, well, I've never been to Bath - anyone fancy a trip?
The exhibition shows many of the Miss Monroe's personal possessions - everything from film costumes to her orange squeezer (one of only two things she claimed from her divorce from Arthur Miller).
There are over 65 exhibits including the pink wiggle dress from Niagara, the chiffon dress from Some Like it Hot, costumes from The Prince and the Showgirl, the aforementioned juicer, photos of her mother and a figurine of a dancer she was given during her time in an orphanage.
This promises to be an intimate portrait of a woman many were and are still in love with.
The curater states
"From the objects in the collection I've realised how much she'd gone through in her life,
only to fall to pieces at the end - a tragedy."
