11/04/1957 Bal April in Paris

Le 11 avril 1957, Marilyn Monroe et Arthur Miller participent au grand bal "April in Paris" au Waldorf Astoria à Manhattan, New York; un gala fêtant le 200ème anniversaire de la naissance de Lafayette. Pendant le dîner, Marilyn discute avec l'ancien ambassadeur de l'Angleterre Winthrop Aldrich, mais aussi avec la journaliste Elsa Maxwell. Les acteurs français Gérard Philipe et Jean Marais et l'actrice Françoise Arnoul viennent saluer Marilyn.
La duchesse de Windsor demande à Marilyn de tirer les tickets de tombola dont les deux lots étaient deux voitures (une Chrysler et une Citröen). Avant de partir, chaque invité reçoit des cadeaux en souvenirs: des échantillons de produits de luxe "made in France", comprenant eau de cologne, parfums, cravates Dior, moutarde de Dijon et des bonbons.
Marilyn portait une robe de Norman Norell.
Certaines photographies sont de Peter Stackpole et Bob Henriques.
