In a recent interview, Eva Longoria named Marilyn Monroe as her ultimate style icon, she says, ''Marilyn Monroe had that certain something. She never changed
her look, and even after her death that blonde hair with the red lips is still glamorous and beautiful. But it's also what she exuded - she was electrifying and you
couldn't wait to see what she did next and who she was with. She just had this essence about her that was beautiful.''
In a beautifully crafted new book, we go far beyond the blonde hair and red lips to take delight in learning the secrets that made Marilyn one of the most stylish
ladies of all time as Marilyn in Fashion traces the style evolution of Hollywood's golden girl in the world of haute couture to the simple every day inexpensive
clothes that could be worn by anyone.
Marilyn's ability to spot up-and-coming designers made her a fashion visionary. Before they were household names, she wore Ferragamo pumps, carried Louis
Vuitton bags, and donned the designs of Norman Norell, Emillio Pucci, and Lanvin.
The book is divided into two parts, with the first part focusing on the designers and their history with Marilyn, from films to public appearances, the second part is
on hair; makeup; hats; overcoats; off the rack, and even a chapter on what she wore in England! Brilliantly documented each section is lavishly illustrated with
photographic evidence and fine details.
It's one of the best books of 2012 and is visually stunning!
