Updated: 26 May 2016
‘Give a girl the right pair of shoes and she’ll conquer the world.’ And that is exactly what Marilyn Monroe did. The legacy of the iconic American actress and model will be brought to life at the Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour, in collaboration with Julien’s Auctions, to bring you an exclusive and rare opportunity to see some of her personal treasures and costumes. This exhibition, Marilyn Monroe: Legacy of a Legend, will take you on a journey through her extraordinary life of high glamour through 1950’s Hollywood, as you get up close and personal to original costumes from films such as Some Like It Hot and No Business Like Show Business. Not only will you be introduced to these, but on display will also be Monroe’s favourite pieces of jewellery, watches and accessories. But if that wasn’t enough, you can take a look at her more personal life through her journals, handwritten letters and written poetry by Monroe herself. For any Monroe fan, don your iconic white halter dress and strut on down to this exhibition.

📅 25 May – 20 June 2016: Open daily 10AM – 7PM

📍 Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour, Lots Road, London
