A Green Jersey Top & Deep Purple Velvet Pants

Le maillot vert en jersey & le pantalon violet en velours
A Green Jersey Top & Deep Purple Velvet Pants

mm_dress-gpb_ensemble-mm_travilla-1 

Cet ensemble est composé d'un maillot vert en jersey à longues manches et au décolleté croisé, d'un pantalon bleu/violet foncé en velours et d'une ceinture en soie de couleur lavande pâle. Il a été conçu par le créateur et couturier de la 20th Century Fox, William "Billy" Travilla pour le film Gentlemen prefer blondes (Les hommes préfèrent les blondes) tourné en 1952.

Marilyn Monroe fit deux essais de tests costumes avec cette tenue: d'abord, le 12 novembre 1952, elle pose seule devant l'ardoise indiquant les notions liées à la tenue dans le film (le rôle, la scène, le nom du couturier, la date). Elle accessoirise la tenue avec des boucles d'oreilles (de couleur vert émeraudes foncées telles qu'on les découvre dans le film), un collier et un bracelet au poignet gauche (qui sont de même couleur que les boucles d'oreilles). Elle porte des sandales noires croisées et ouvertes aux pieds.
Puis, le 17 décembre 1952, elle prend la pose à côté du couturier Travilla (qui tient dans sa main l'esquisse de la tenue) et qui réajuste le maillot. La coiffure de Marilyn est plus fluide, et elle porte les mêmes accessoires, excepté le bracelet remplacé par une bague à la main gauche.

C'est une tenue qui se veut décontractée tout en restant chic: Marilyn la porte dans une scène où son personnage, Lorelei, une chanteuse de Music Hall qui embarque sur un paquebot avec sa partenaire Dorothy (Jane Russell), se retrouve dans sa cabine en pleine discussion avec le riche (et imposteur) Piggy puis avec Dorothy. Les deux chanteuses ne sont pas en représentation et la scène les représente dans un moment de journée ordinaire (sur un paquebot certes, mais dans leur cabine). [> la scène du film sur le blog: voir les captures, les photos et sur le tournage ]. C'est pourquoi on retrouve le côté "casual" dans le top qui se veut court et malgré tout moulant, tout comme le pantalon qui retombe tout en fluidité sur les pieds; et le côté "chic" par les matières (jersey, velours) et la ceinture de soie. On retrouve les bijoux portés aux tests de costumes et il semblerait qu'il s'agisse d'une parure avec les mêmes pierres de même couleur: les boucles d'oreilles, le collier, le bracelet (au poignet gauche) et la bague (à la main droite).

Marilyn posera dans cette tenue pour une série de photographies sous l'objectif de John Florea, servant de clichés publicitaires au film; mais pour ces poses ironiques -où elle joue aux cartes avec des billets de banque- elle a changé les bijoux: elle a ôté le collier, le bracelet, la bague et porte de grandes boucles blanches pendantes aux oreilles:

Il semble indéniable que Travilla se soit fortement inspiré de cette tenue présentée dans le magazine américain Vogue de avril 1952 où dans les pages de mode, on voit cette mannequin portant une tenue similaire (le top est plus près du corps et moins fluide que celui de Marilyn, et le décolleté n'est pas croisé; le pantalon en velours et la ceinture semblent avoir été repris à l'identique. Tout comme l'idée des bijoux -différents que ceux portés par Marilyn, mais en nombre), le tout dans un esprit ethnique / bohème chic:

Jane Russell, la partenaire de Marilyn, portera le top vert dans la suite de "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes" tournée en 1955 -"Gentlemen marry brunettes" ("Les hommes épousent les brunes") réalisé par Richard Sale- la ceinture est mauve et le pantalon est un corsaire noir satiné:

Expo Marilyn Die Starke Monroe du 26/03 au 01/11/2015

expo-the_strength-1

Cette exposition de la collection de Ted Stampfler est une reprise de l'expo de 2014 Private Marilyn qui avait eu lieu en Suisse. Il y est présenté cette fois-ci près de 400 objets personnels ayant appartenu à Marilyn Monroe au Liechtenstein (entre la Suisse et l'Autriche).
L’exposition se penche sur la question de l’émancipation de la femme dans les années 50 à l’exemple de la femme la plus photographiée du XXe siècle: l’actrice, chanteuse et icône de la mode Marilyn Monroe. Elle présente la forte personnalité de cette femme exceptionnelle qui, 53 ans après sa mort, n’a rien perdu de la fascination qu’elle suscite et dont l’influence sur la société est encore perceptible aujourd’hui.
Le Musée national du Liechtenstein présente 400 objets qui proviennent initialement de sa succession et font actuellement partie de la collection privée Ted Stampfer, la plus grande collection de ce genre regroupant des objets ayant appartenu à Marilyn Monroe.
On peut y voir des vêtements luxueux, des accessoires personnels, des produits de beauté et de coiffure, des accessoires de cinéma, des documents privés, des films et des photos dont la présentation, dans cette constellation, est une première mondiale. Des objets prêtés par des collectionneurs du monde entier viennent compléter cette collection.
Les visiteurs plongent dans le monde de Marilyn et traversent chronologiquement les stades les plus importants de son évolution et les périodes déterminantes de sa vie. Ils découvrent des objets uniques qui témoignent de la vie et de l’œuvre de cette femme exceptionnelle tout en révélant son identité de femme émancipée. Pour cela, l’exposition s’intéresse aussi bien à l’évolution physique de Marilyn et au rôle qu’elle fait jouer à son corps, qu’à la manière très personnelle dont elle se rebelle contre une industrie cinématographique dominée par les hommes. Grâce à sa hardiesse, elle obtiendra entre autres de meilleures conditions contractuelles et des droits de codécision, mais pourra aussi fonder sa propre société de production cinématographique, ce qui lui assurera une plus grande indépendance.
Un catalogue éponyme accompagnant l’exposition est en vente dans la boutique du musée au prix de 20.00 CHF, ainsi que différentes autres publications.
Directeur général: Directeur Prof. Dr. Rainer Vollkommer
Administrateur et collectionneur: Ted Stampfer

> article de l'expo sur PR Newswire :
The special exhibition presents the emancipation of women in the 1950s through the example of the most photographed woman of the 20th century -- the actress, singer and style icon, Marilyn Monroe.
The exhibition here focuses on the strength behind the exceptional phenomenon who, even 53 years after her death in 1962, has not lost her charm and influence, which in society and the women's movement to this day is palpable.
Presented are more than 400 selected pieces from the private collection of Ted Stampfer, the world's largest collection of Marilyn Monroe originals of its kind. Through his willingness to present his collection in exhibitions, the art collector and expert wants not only to remember the actress, who was intellectually underestimated during her lifetime and reduced by filmmakers and media to her visual appeal, but also to make exhibit attendees aware of the clever and ambitious businesswoman. Most of the pieces originate from her estate, of which the items were stored after Marilyn Monroe's death in August 1962, until 1999, until large portions of it were put up for auction with auction houses like Christie's and Julien's. The exhibition is rounded out by individual pieces from other international collectors.
Uniquely designed and seen for the first time worldwide, the National Museum in Liechtenstein thus enables its exhibition visitors to dive into Monroe's world. Visitors walk through the most important chronological development stages of her life, and can view special exhibits that not only give a glimpse into her life and the work of this extraordinary woman, but also highlight her emancipated side. These include: high-quality articles of clothing; accessories; beauty, skincare and styling products; personal and film company documents; film props; and extensive photo and film footage presented by means of electronic media.
The exhibition, however, is not just focused on presenting personal belongings from a late actress. Rather, it focuses more on the unknown private person -- the real face behind the Hollywood icon. Thus, it gives an intimate look at the real person behind the fictional persona Marilyn Monroe. Using examples, visitors learn about an ambitious woman of the 1940s and 1950s, who, despite the prevailing gender roles of her time, reached her own set goals gradually and with great confidence.
Adressed is on the one hand, the outward makeover of a natural brunette girl, who became with the conscious use of her body the most desirable woman in the world. This is, for example, demonstrated with the original false eyelashes, various containers of makeup, articles and accessories used as highlights for her hair styling, which were significantly involved in the transformation process. But also Marilyn's favorite clothing is presented, including her white and checkered capri pants, which she liked to combine with a black turtleneck sweater. She wore them both in her private life as well as in important photo shoots (for example in the famous shoots with photographer Alfred Eisenstaedt and Milton Greene). These iconic photographs today show us not only a timeless beauty, but a self-confident woman, who was well aware of her own charisma.
In addition, the exhibition also highlights the public person and reports about the strong side of a woman who had to compete in a man's world in the 1950s. There are character traits and self-confident behavior demonstrated, which culminated at the height of Monroe's career to rebel against the male-dominated film industry. This courageous behavior led to, among other things, better contract terms and the ability to have more say over her career, plus to establishing her own film production company -- another way she became more independent. The exhibition presents original costumes, film props and important documents on the films that were produced by Monroe herself.
Besides the interest in her own career and her personal advancement, Marilyn Monroe was also involved in helping the disadvantaged and minorities. This is illustrated with the example of Ella Fitzgerald, the famous African-American jazz singer, for whom Monroe actively campaigned to obtain engagements in a hip nightclub that was typically reserved for white artists. Fitzgerald later reported that Monroe's influence and active action were instrumental in her international success as a singer.
The exhibition offers in all its aspects a comprehensive view of the strong-willed character of a woman who was ahead of her time. And it also reveals to the visitor that Marilyn Monroe, by her behavior in different ways, exerted a formative influence on the emancipation of women, making her one of the most important cultural and historical figures of the 20th century.

expo Suisse ad La collection privée de Ted Stampfer est la collection privée connue sur Marilyn Monroe la plus importante d'Europe. Considéré comme un expert, Ted Stampfer fait partie des quelques particuliers à faire profiter le public de sa collection. Le but de l'exposition n'est pas seulement de se remémorer l'actrice douée qui a marqué l'histoire de son unique manière d'être et de sa présence incomparable, mais surtout de mettre en évidence la personne Marilyn Monroe, son côté plus intime et moins connu. Car derrière la façade du sex-symbol se cachait une femme d'affaires avisée avec des idées concrètes. Malgré sa célébrité, Marilyn Monroe est restée un être humain tout à fait équilibré.

Marilyn Monroe naît à Los Angeles le 1er juin 1926 sous le nom de Norma Jeane Mortenson et est baptisée du nom de Norma Jeane Baker. Elle grandit dans différentes familles d'accueil. Après une carrière pleine de succès comme mannequin, elle signe son premier contrat cinématographique en 1946. Au cours des années cinquante, elle devient la plus grande star d'Hollywood. Elle meurt le 5 août 1962 d'une overdose de somnifères. Jusqu'ici, il n'a jamais été prouvé que ce soit un accident, une mort délibérée ou un meurtre.

Heritage Auction 07/2012

lot n°46001: A Marilyn Monroe Signed Black and White Photograph, Circa 1956
A Marilyn Monroe Signed Black and White Photograph, Circa 1956. An original print with a matte finish, depicting the star in one of her legendary glamour poses, her blue fountain pen ink inscription on the right side reads "To Roy, / Love & Kisses and - / thanks for keeping me / out of the clink! / Marilyn Monroe." (Please note there are slight creases in all four corners, especially the lower left one, plus a few minor chips to the surface, but the overall image and signature are not affected.) 14" x 11"
PROVENANCE: The "Roy" noted above was Beverly Hills police officer, Roy Garrett, who joined the force in 1946, and who had a habit of asking movie stars to send him an autographed photograph (which most did - see various lots throughout this auction). He evidently let Marilyn go without a ticket as he received this from her in the mail a few days later.
Sold: $31,250.00

heritage-lot46001


Lot 46002: A Marilyn Monroe Signed Black and White Photograph, Circa 1955
A Marilyn Monroe Signed Black and White Photograph, Circa 1955. An original print with a matte finish, depicting the star in her most famous headshot, her white fountain pen ink inscription in the lower right corner reading "To Vern / It was a pleasure / to work with you / Love and Kisses / Marilyn Monroe;" "Vern" being Vernon Rickard, a bit player and "gofer" in the early days of Hollywood. (Please note there are many creases and wrinkles on lower margin that somewhat affect the autograph and there is a slight dent in the upper right corner.) 10" x 8"
Sold: $11,250.00

Lot 46003: A Marilyn Monroe Likely Final Signed Check, August 4, 1962
A Marilyn Monroe Likely Final Signed Check, August 4, 1962. From the star's personal checking account at City National Bank of Beverly Hills, check 281, penned in blue ballpoint ink (in another hand, possibly Eunice Murray's, MM's caretaker) reading "Aug 4 62 / Pilgrim / $228.80 / Two hundred twenty-eight and 80," signed in same ink in Marilyn's own hand "Marilyn Monroe," a red stamp on front reads "Paid / Aug 6 1962 / 901-1606," further stamps on back read in part "For Deposit Only / Pilgrim Modern Furniture" and "Santa Monica Bank.../ Aug 6 62;" included is a photocopy (not the original) of an invoice that Pilgrim's Furniture gave to MM (see below footnote). 3" x 6"
Coincidentally, two years ago, Heritage Auctions sold the original invoice that was given to Marilyn by this company [Pilgrim's Furniture then at 12217 Wilshire Boulevard in West Los Angeles] in Sale 7018, Lot 50225. That invoice was also dated August 4, 1962, so it appears that Pilgrim's made a delivery to MM's house and that she paid for her "Chest Roman white" on the spot with the above check from her personal checkbook. Interestingly, on that invoice, the evident delivery man wrote "Rec'd Check #281 in amount $228.80 / Payment in full / Earl Shero." At this point in time, this seems to be the last check Marilyn ever signed as she died that night, August 4, 1962. This check can be used to argue the point that Marilyn did not commit suicide -- would one be concerned with new furniture on the last day of one's life? Probably not!

These photographs of Monroe were taken on October 10, 1950 by Bob Beerman, a staff photographer at 'Modern Screen' magazine.

Lot 46016: A Marilyn Monroe Legal Form, 1953
A Marilyn Monroe Legal Form, 1953. A pale yellow quadruplicate copy titled "Notice of Attachment," reading in part "Matter of Shaeffer [sic?] Plaintiff / Marilyn Monroe Defendant / on Monday, 2-2-53 12:01 PM;" two hole punch marks on top margin. 9" x 4"
This is an odd document, possibly relating to MM's voice and musical coach, Hal Schaeffer, though the last name is spelled differently on this form. Schaeffer, who was having an affair with MM as she was divorcing Joe DiMaggio, unwittingly became part of the infamous 'Wrong Door Raid,' but this piece pre-dates that event by almost two years -- perhaps it relates to a different person altogether.
