Wepopped into the Getty Images gallery this weekend to check out the Marilyn Munroe exhibition – We’ve had a renewed interest in the starlet ever since we saw My Week With Marilyn. The exhibition is made up of images capturing different moments of Marilyn’s life both on and off screen, though was she ever really off screen? The majority of these photographs are relatively unseen and it’s interesting to see quite a few of her more private moments.
Better still for all those who adored the fashion of that era, behind a glass wall they have on display a number dresses that she wore from elegant cocktail dresses to the showgirl costumes – its only then you realise just how glamorous she was! There is also rare video footage and other memorabilia. This exhibition marks the 50th anniversary of Munroe’s death, pop along for a boop-boop-a-doop.
Runs until 23rd May
