Quand Marilyn Monroe rejoint les studios de la Columbia (elle signe son contrat le 09 mars 1948), les studios décident de la relooker totalement à l'image de leur star Rita Hayworth. Marilyn subit une électrolyse de la racine des cheveux (c'est à dire une épilation douloureuse) destinée à modifier l’implantation en forme de V de ses cheveux sur le haut du front, permettant ainsi d'élargir le front. Une technique subie aussi par Rita Hayworth. Puis ses cheveux sont décolorés dans une nuance de "platine chaud", faisant échos à Jean Harlow, l'idole de Marilyn.

style_LOTC-hair_montage-rita01  

When Marilyn Monroe joins the Columbia studios (she signs her contract on March 9, 1948), the studios decide to completely revamp her in the image of their star Rita Hayworth. Marilyn undergoes electrolysis of the hairline (i.e. painful hair removal) intended to modify the V-shaped implantation of her hair on the top of the forehead, thus allowing the forehead to be widened. A technique also suffered by Rita Hayworth. Then her hair is bleached in a shade of "warm platinum", echoing Jean Harlow, Marilyn's idol.


Quand à sa coiffure, les studios la mettent entre les mains de leur coiffeuse Helen Hunt, qui s'occupait aussi de la chevelure de Rita Hayworth et va reproduire sur Marilyn la même coiffure: les cheveux mi-longs, ondulés et crantés.

As for her hairstyle, the studios put it in the hands of their hairdresser Helen Hunt, who also took care of Rita Hayworth's hair and will reproduce the same hairstyle on Marilyn: mid-length and wavy hair.

Pour le maquillage, le visage de Marilyn est confié à Clay Campbell, le maquilleur attitré des studios de la Columbia, qui s'occupait aussi du visage de Rita Hayworth et qui reproduit un maquillage similaire sur Marilyn: un léger fard à paupières, du ricil aux yeux et du rouge à lèvres rouge.

For the make-up, Marilyn's face is entrusted to Clay Campbell, the regular make-up artist at Columbia studios, who also took care of Rita Hayworth's face and who reproduces similar make-up on Marilyn: a light eye shadow, ricil eyes and red lipstick.

Les chaussures de Peggy Martin
The shoes of Peggy Martin

Les chaussures de scène sont dorés à petits talons. Pour la scène d'introduction du film -la scène chantée "Ladies of the Chorus" où les filles chantent et dansent sur scène - certaines portent des sandales ouvertes (laissant apercevoir les doigts de pieds) et d'autres portent des sandales fermés.
La 1ère paire de chaussures de scène portée par Peggy / Marilyn sont des sandales ouvertes, comme sur les clichés publicitaires du film. 
D'autres actrices portent aussi des sandales ouvertes mais à semelles compensées, dans la scène où elles rejoignent leur grande loge; ces sandales ne sont néanmoins pas portés quand elles sont sur scène.
Adele Jergens porte des sandales dorés au bout ouvert.

The stage shoes are golden with a small heel. For the introductory scene of the film - the sung scene "Ladies of the Chorus" where the girls sing and dance on stage - some wear open sandals (letting see the toes) and others wear closed sandals.
The 1st pair of stage shoes worn by Peggy / Marilyn are open sandals, as in the publicity shots of the film.

Lot 0521: "GENTLEMEN PREFER BLONDES" PHOTO-SHOOT RENTED BRACELET
A gold-plated sterling silver bracelet, designed by Joseff of Hollywood. The bracelet is composed of series of rectangular wirework links of foliate design, enhanced by brilliant-cut simulated diamonds, joined by fluted triangular shaped links with hinged locking clasp and safety chain, and mounted in gold plated sterling silver.
The bracelet was among a set rented for Marilyn Monroe in a series of Fox publicity photos shot by staff photographer Frank Powolny, used to promote the film Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (Twentieth Century Fox, 1953). The bracelet was ultimately not photographed, but the photoshoot produced legendary images of Monroe wearing the racy gold pleated gown designed by Travilla for Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. Although the gown was deemed to be too revealing because of its plunging neckline and was cut from the film, Monroe liked it and insisted on wearing it to the 1953 Photoplay Awards ceremony. She also wore it during this photoshoot, together with the rest of the jewelry set, producing some of the most iconic images of Monroe ever captured.
Length, 6.75 inches
PROVENANCE From The Joseff Archives

Lot 0958: MARILYN MONROE: "HOW TO MARRY A MILLIONAIRE" PHOTO-SHOOT WORN EARRINGS (WITH MAGAZINE)
A pair of gold-tone floral basket pendant ear clips with faceted crystal beads, worn by Marilyn Monroe in promotional photos for How To Marry A Millionaire (Twentieth Century Fox, 1953). By Napier, no. MMF889. Each clip back earring is designed as a gold-tone flower basket, with wirework detail and sculpted flowers enhanced by faceted crystal beads, and suspended by a gold-tone floret centering a faceted crystal bead.
In the glamorous 20th Century Fox 1953 promotional photo shoot, Monroe posed in the earrings wearing a burgundy satin evening gown designed by William Travilla.
This set is one of two sets made for the photo shoot. Joan Castle had rented two pairs of earrings and other pieces including an engagement ring. One pair never made it back and the other was slightly damaged. This set was the former, which Marilyn had purportedly taken from the set as she was seen wearing them after the film wrapped.
Accompanied by a notarized letter of provenance from the husband of actress Carmen Miranda, as well as a vintage copy of Movieland magazine featuring Monroe on the cover wearing the earrings.

Lot 1009: "THE FIREBALL" STUDIO EVENING GOWN (WITH DVD AND BOOK)
A black velvet studio evening gown from the Marilyn Monroe production The Fireball (1950, Bert E. Friedlob Productions), with a bias label inscribed "M. Monroe 1 27 3 0396." The floor-length gown features a plunging neckline front zipper and tie, as well as three hook and eye closures. Also included is a matching black velvet belt and a loose shoulder pad.
Monroe has a very small role in the film, which premiered in Los Angeles on October 7, 1950, less than a week before her watershed performance in All About Eve (20th Century Fox, 1950) premiered in New York. She plays Polly, one of several women vying for the attention of roller-skating champion Johnny Casar (Mickey Rooney). As usual, she stands out as a vixen who loves him only for his fame and success.
The gown is seen worn in a publicity photo used to promote the film and also possibly worn in an early photo session with photographer, Ed Clark (photos available upon request).
Includes a DVD of the film and an edition of the book Monroe: Her Life in Pictures by James Spada (New York: Doubleday, 1982).

Lot 15: MARILYN MONROE ROBE
 A cream cotton mandarin style robe owned by Marilyn Monroe and gifted to her personal assistant Vanessa Reis, sisterin-law of May Reis. The robe has seven self-frog closures, an internal label reading “Tuji” and the collar stamped "REIS." Accompanied by a copy of a letter to Reis dated August 14, 1993, in which Ralph Roberts writes, "Reference Marilyn robe and bracelet. As best I recall, late one Saturday afternoon Marilyn and I were in the dining area of the Miller 9th floor suite at the Mapes Hotel. She had just changed into a robe, sitting on one of the chairs and I was massaging her back and shoulders. She showed me a bracelet she'd brought to Reno with thought of possibly wearing it as a (undecipherable) comment for Roslyn. Upon discussing it, she and Paula had decided somehow it wouldn't be appropriate. Just then May Reis entered with Vanessa Reis (the widow of Irving Reis, May's greatly loved brother and film director). Vanessa had come up from LA for a long weekend visit - there'd been some talk of our going out to some of the casinos to do a bit of gambling. Vanessa told Marilyn how lovely she looked in that robe. Marilyn thanked her + impulsively held out the bracelet, Take this + wear it as a good luck charm. I was wearing it during dance rehearsals for Let's Make Love, smashed into a prop, so a stone is loosened. I wish I could go with you, but Raffe is getting some Misfits knots out. And I should go over that scene coming up Monday.' They left. Marilyn asked me to remind her to have the robe cleaned to give to Vanessa. Whitey, Agnes, May - all of us - knew from experience we couldn't compliment Marilyn on any personal items or had to be very careful. She'd be compulsive about giving it, or getting a copy - to you."

Lot 84: HISTORIC DRESS WORN BY MARILYN MONROE WHEN SHE SANG HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO JFK AT MADISON SQUARE GARDEN IN 1962
 A Jean Louis designed illusion gown worn by Marilyn Monroe at Madison Square Garden in New York City on May 19, 1962, at a Democratic fundraiser and 45th birthday celebration for President John F. Kennedy.
Early in 1962, Monroe asked famed Hollywood costume designer Jean Louis to create a dress “that only Marilyn Monroe could wear.” The nude soufflé chiffon gown, perfectly matching Monroe’s skin tone, was embellished with hand-sewn round crystals, carefully placed since the dress was created with no underlining layer. Monroe wore no undergarments that night, instead relying on Louis’ masterful swirls of crystals in precisely the right places. Under the stage lights of Madison Square Garden, the fabric of the dress appeared to melt away, leaving only twinkling rays of light from the crystals reflected by the spotlight covering Monroe. The gown was designed as a sleeveless column dress with a scoop neck and open back with clear zipper, covered by hook and eye tab closure and a small train at the back hem. Despite the zipper and closures, the gown was so form fitting that Louis later disclosed that Monroe had to be sewn into the back closure. His hand stitching is still evident beneath the lower back hook and eye tabs. Since 1999, the dress has been displayed on a custom conservator mannequin.
In this dress, Monroe sang her unique version of “Happy Birthday” to President Kennedy and a crowd of 15,000 well-wishers. Some have posited that Monroe’s delayed appearance on stage and her breathless performance can be attributed to getting lost and racing to the stage as Peter Lawford joked about Monroe’s penchant for never being on time.
The effect of her performance was far reaching – not only for Monroe but also for American 1960s culture. Monroe’s seductive serenade remains a crossroads of Hollywood and political touch points more than 54 years later. Part of the appeal may be the intrigue: Were Monroe and Kennedy having an affair? Did she just stand up in front of 15,000 people and sing him that song that way ? The performance has taken on a life of its own, outside the context of the gala. While Monroe’s performance is instantly recognizable and the most memorable of the night, it was one of many that night that included Jack Benny, Ella Fitzgerald, Henry Fonda and Maria Callas. However, it is Monroe singing in this dress that is remembered. It has come to epitomize who Marilyn was in popular culture, including the lyrics she wrote herself for the evening:
Happy Birthday to you
Happy Birthday to you
Happy Birthday Mr. President
Happy Birthday to you
Thanks Mr. President
For all the things you've done
The battles that you've won
The way you deal with U.S. Steel
And our problems by the ton
We thank you so much
Everybody! Happy Birthday!
As an enormous birthday cake was wheeled onstage, President Kennedy commented on Monroe’s performance, joking, “I can now retire from politics after having had ‘Happy Birthday’ sung to me in such a sweet, wholesome way.”
On that special evening, Monroe could not have known that she would live fewer than three months. Perhaps she thought another future performance would replace this as the moment that would epitomize her and her life. Sadly, John F. Kennedy was assassinated eighteen months later, and if tragedy had not intervened, this may not have been the singular iconic moment we associate with Monroe and Kennedy.
Although Monroe could not have known that this performance would be the last image of her remembered by so many following her untimely death, she expended a great deal of effort and money to bring this moment to life. Monroe’s financial statements from this period reveal a great deal about the extraordinary amount of money she put behind her performance. Her May 1962 financial statements list a special expense category titled “New York Birthday Salute to the President” with a $5,000 expense, Monroe’s ticket/donation made to attend the event. Expenses also include $1,000 listed as pertaining to the birthday gala for her maid, Hazel Washington, to accompany Monroe to New York. The expense is coded as “business maid, plane fare, salary.” Her last checkbook also records a check paid to Mary Irvine for makeup for “special appearance at Madison Square Garden.” Monroe’s financial statements also list a $300 deposit paid to Western Costume Company to create this gown with matching shoes in May and a payment for the remaining balance of $1,140.33 in June 1962. There were no doubt other expenses involved in Monroe’s appearance, but the ticket to the event, dress, and the expenses listed above total more than $7,000 in 1962, which with inflation would equate to $60,000 in 2016.
These costs do not begin to take into account the cost Monroe paid professionally for her appearance. At the time she was filming Something’s Got To Give, and Twentieth Century Fox executives would not give Monroe permission to leave filming to attend the event. According to some sources, the employees on the crew were aware, in advance, that Monroe was traveling from Los Angeles to perform at the celebration. Whatever miscommunication or machinations there were behind the absence, it became another strike against the actress on an already contentious film set. Monroe’s unauthorized departure was used against her as she was ultimately fired from the film.
The performance that night in May also had an impact on Monroe’s personal life. Monroe biographer Lois Banner, in her book Marilyn: The Passion and the Paradox (New York: Bloomsbury, 2012), asserts that Monroe told the event planners that she would dress discreetly. When viewed under normal lighting, the dress did appear modest, but under the glare of the Madison Square Garden stage lights, the Jean Louis creation magically transformed into a sparkling second skin. The dress and the song were too much for the political dynasty, and according to Banner, that evening ended whatever relationship Monroe and John F. Kennedy shared and severed her from the rest of the Kennedy family. The magic and myth of Marilyn Monroe as legend was certainly sealed that evening in May 1962, made permanent by her mysterious death a short time later. The fact that she remains a contemporary role model and muse all these decades later is extraordinary and a feat achieved by few. Ten years after her death, Elton John and Bernie Taupin penned “Candle in the Wind” about Monroe, repurposing the lyrics twenty-four years later for the funeral of Princess Diana. From Andy Warhol to Cindy Sherman to Richard Avedon and Bert Stern, the art and photography world has always taken Marilyn Monroe seriously. In fact, it was Monroe’s death in 1962 that inspired Warhol to create the “Marilyn Diptych” among more than 20 silkscreen paintings of her, all based on the publicity photograph from her 1953 film Niagara, plucking her from pop culture, forever immortalized as art.

The fitted bodice has ribbon ties to neck and sleeves, a snap back closure, an interior bias label inscribed “Marilyn Monroe,” and a 20th Century Fox label inscribed "A-769-04.” The bodice was offered to Picture Show & Film Pictorial magazine in 1956 as the grand prize for a reader contest and was originally described as the blouse Monroe wore in the film. While the blouse contains a 20th Century Fox studio label with Marilyn’s name the and the studio’s accurate production number for Bus Stop, the blouse does not match the costume Monroe wears in the final production of the film or in publicity photos. Accompanied by an original Picture Show & Film Pictorial magazine cover, a clipping announcing that Mrs. Fulcher had won the bodice, the original letter from the magazine addressed to the contest’s winner, Mrs. A.M. Fulcher, reading, “My very sincere congratulations on your postcard entry which wins this unique prize of Marilyn Monroe’s blouse, worn by her during the filming of 'Bus Stop.' I hope you will tell the friends to whom you show your prize that regularly something worn or used by a British or American star in a film will be offered in a free competition to be won by a reader of Picture Show. Again my congratulations. Yours sincerely, The Editor. P.S. If you would like to send an acknowledgement to Marilyn Monroe I will see that it is delivered to her.”

Lot 32: MARILYN MONROE RHINESTONE BRACELET
 A rhinestone bracelet owned by Marilyn Monroe and gifted to Vanessa Reis, the sister-in-law to May Reis, Monroe’s personal assistant and secretary. The bracelet has eight rectangular jeweled panels, each centered with a rounded faceted glass and linked with square rhinestone. The clasp is embossed with Bogoff. In a letter to the consigner dated November 28, 1994, Ralph Roberts, Monroe’s masseur, writes, “Reference Marilyn robe and bracelet. As best I recall, late one Saturday afternoon Marilyn and I were in the dining area of the Miller 9th floor suite at the Mapes Hotel. She had just changed into a robe, sitting on one of the chairs and I was massaging her back and shoulders. She showed me a bracelet she’d brought to Reno with thought of possibly wearing it as a [undecipherable comment] for Roslyn [Monroe’s character in The Misfits]. Upon discussing it, she and Paula [Paula Strasberg was Monroe’s acting coach and friend] had decided somehow it wouldn’t be appropriate. Just then May Reis entered with Vanessa Reis (the widow of Irving Reis, May’s greatly loved brother and film director). Vanessa had come up from LA for a long weekend visit – there’d been some talk of our going out to some of the casinos to do a bit of gambling. Vanessa told Marilyn how lovely she looked in that robe. Marilyn thanked her + impulsively held out the bracelet, ‘Take this + wear it as a good luck charm. I was wearing it during dance rehearsals for Let’s Make Love, smashed into a prop, so a stone is loosened. I wish I could go with you, but Raffe is getting some Misfits knots out. And I should go over that scene coming up Monday.’ They left. Marilyn asked me to remind her to have the robe cleaned to give to Vanessa. Whitey, Agnes, May – all of us – knew from experience we couldn’t compliment Marilyn on any personal items or had to be very careful. She’d be compulsive about giving it, or getting a copy – to you.” Accompanied by a copy of the letter.

29/10/1956 Londres, Empire Theater

Le 29 octobre 1956, a lieu une grande soirée à Londres: d'abord, la 'Royal Command Performance' pour le film "The Battle of the River Plate" ("La Bataille du Rio de la Plata") à l'Empire Theater, à Leicester Square. Comme à son habitude, Marilyn Monroe arriva en retard aux bras de son mari Arthur Miller et en retrait, Milton H. Greene. Ils parviennent à se glisser dans le théâtre, juste avant la fermeture des portes.

On October 29, 1956, Marilyn Monroe, Arthur Miller and Milton H Greene are in late to assist at the "The Battle of the River Plate", a movie projected by the Royal Command Performance at The Empire Theatre in leicester Square, London.    


Ensuite, vingt vedettes de cinéma devaient être présentées à la Reine Elisabeth II, dont Joan Crawford, Victor Mature, Dana Andrews, Brigitte Bardot, Anita Ekberg et bien sûr Marilyn Monroe.
La reine félicita Marilyn pour sa révérence et lui demande:
-"Vous plaisez-vous à Windsor ?"
-"Pardon ?... Je croyais que nous vivions à Englefield Green", répondit Marilyn, pleine de trac.
La reine lui expliqua alors gentiment qu'elles étaient voisines, car les deux propriétés de Egham (où logeaient Marilyn et son mari à Parkside House) et celle du château de Windsor se touchent.
Sa majesté l'ayant aussi complimentée sur ses bonnes manières, Marilyn répondit qu'elle les avaient apprises pour son nouveau film en tournage (The Prince and the Showgirl) et qu'elle ne les trouvait désormais plus difficiles.

Brigitte Bardot et Marilyn Monroe se sont rencontrées furtivement dans les toilettes pour dames où chacunes des deux femmes se refaisaient une beauté devant le miroir. Brigitte fut subjuguée par la beauté de Marilyn. Elles se sont données chacune un sourire mais n'échangèrent aucun mot. Malheureusement, aucun photographe n'eut l'idée d'immortaliser leur rencontre dans le salon du théâtre où toutes les stars étaient réunies avant de rencontrer la reine.

Souvenir raconté par Brigitte Bardot dans son autobiographie Initiales BB Mémoires:
"C'est là que je l'ai vue et n'ai vu qu'elle: Marilyn. Ravissante, blonde dans une robe dorée , décollettée jusqu'aux chevilles, elle ne s'embarassait pas du protocole, on avait envie de l'embrasser tant ses joues étaient roses et fraîches. Ses mèches rebelles coulaient sur son cou et autour de ses oreilles, elle avait l'air de sortir de son lit, heureuse et naturelle !
Je me retrouvai aux "Ladies" avec elle, moi pour tirer sur mes mèches et les décoiffer, et découdre en hâte le tulle qui cachait mes seins, elle pour se voir dans la glace, se sourire à gauche, puis à droite, elle sentait le Numéro 5 de Chanel. Je l'adorais, la regardais, fascinée, oubliant mes cheveux. J'aurais voulu être "Elle", avoir sa personnalité et son caractère.
C'était la première et la dernière fois de ma vie que je la voyais, mais elle m'a séduite en trente secondes. Il émanait d'elle une fragilité gracieuse, une douceur espiègle, je ne l'oublierai jamais et lorsque j'appris sa mort quelques années plus tard, j'eus un pibcement douloureux au coeur comme si un être très cher venait de me quitter.
(...) Anita Ekberg avait une paire de seins si énormes qu'on avait l'impression qu'elle avait rembourré son soutien-gorge avec deux obus. J'étais hypnotisée par ces deux bombes. J'attendais qu'elles fassent éclater sa robe, mais rien ne s'est passé."

Souvenir de Brigitte Bardot dans L'indomptable, de Alain Wodrascka et François Bagnaud:
"J'étais terrorisée devant ce protocole terrible. Marilyn Monroe était présente aussi ce jour là. Je la buvais des yeux. Je la trouvais sublime. Marilyn a toujours représenté pour moi tout ce qu'une femme doit rêver d'être: beauté et fragilité en même temps."
