Few people were more photographed and, after death, few people’s lives were so examined. The subject of countless books, rumors and theories, Marilyn Monroe was the movie star’s movie star, a veteran of more than thirty films and three less-than-perfect marriages who, fifty years after she died of a drug overdose, has never faded from the public eye.
Undoubtedly, the actress’s most enduring and successful relationship was with the camera, as the recently released book, Marilyn in Fashion: The Enduring Influence of Marilyn Monroe, beautifully proves. Authors Christopher Nickens and George Zeno provide us with dozens of rare, never-before-seen images over the course of 288 pages that focus on Monroe’s fashion sense, with a simple modest look that evolved into a sexy, sophisticated style that many have attempted but few—if any—have approximated.
