John Moore's Red Lace Gown

Robe en dentelle rouge 
Red Lace Gown

mm_dress-moore_red-1956 

Cette longue robe très sexy, serrée près du corps (au buste jusqu'aux cuisses) et qui se termine en queue de poisson évasée dans le bas, a été conçue par le créateur américain John Moore. D'un rouge vif, brodée de dentelles aux motifs floraux, de fines bretelles soutiennent un profond décolleté, dessinant les contours de sa poitrine par le tissu moulant le buste. Marilyn Monroe a porté cette robe à trois reprises, toujours avec de longs gants noirs en cuir. C'est une robe qui accentue le côté "pin-up", contribuant un effet "ooh-la-la" comme disent les américains, traduisant ici l'ultra-féminité provocatrice et diablement sexy, qui semble être inspiré du personnage de Betty Boop. 

> Marilyn Monroe est vue publiquement avec cette robe pour la première fois le 8 février 1956 où elle se rend à la première de la pièce de théâtre Middle of the night de Joshua Logan (qui la dirigera dans Bus Stop), au Anta Theater de New York. En plus des gants noirs, Marilyn porte un long manteau de fourrure blanc. Ses cheveux sont bouclés et sa coiffure est structurée, avec beaucoup de mouvements par l'effet wavy relevés en arrière, mettant en valeur le contour de son visage et ses longues boucles d'oreilles pendantes:

 > Le deuxième moment où Marilyn est aperçue dans la robe, est lors d'une séance photo prise probablement fin février 1956 dans la maison qu'elle louait au 595 North Beverly Glen Boulevard, à Los Angeles, au moment du tournage de "Bus Stop". Sous l'objectif du photographe Gene Lester, Marilyn pose lascivement telle une vamp, allongée par terre. On y retrouve d'ailleurs son manteau de fourrure blanc au sol. Et Marilyn d'arborer le même look: coiffure, boucles d'oreilles et gants:

Et l'une des photographies de cette séance de Gene Lester sera publiée dans la presse: le 5 mai 1956 dans le Saturday Evening Post:

> C'est lookée de la même façon que pour la séance de Gene Lester (cheveux bouclée en boule, longs gants de cuirs noirs) qu'elle est photographiée en sortant d'un théâtre à New York (date/année inconnues) par ses fans:

 > Il faudra attendre deux années plus tard pour revoir Marilyn porter la robe: le 10 juillet 1958 où elle assiste à la première de la pièce de théâtre Gigi au Paramount Theater, sur Hollywood Boulevard, à Los Angeles. L'été 1958, Marilyn a des cheveux plus courts et une coiffure gonflée (pour les besoins du tournage de "Some Like It Hot"). Elle porte encore des boucles d'oreilles pendantes, mais elles sont différentes (plus courtes que celles portées en 1956). Marilyn est enveloppée dans une étole d'organza noire, faisant échos aux longs gants noirs.

Dressing - Robe de cocktail en satin noir de Renié

Robe de cocktail en satin noir
Black Satin Cocktail Dress

mm_dress_by_renie 

Cette robe a été conçue par la créatrice américaine Renie Conley, dîtes Renié, qui créa de nombreuses tenues pour le cinéma -pour près de 188 films- de 1937 à 1981, dont des tenues pour Elizabeth Taylor dans Cléôpatre en 1964, qui lui a valu l'Oscar de la meilleure création de costumes.
This dress was designed by the American designer Renie Conley, known as Renié, who created numerous outfits for the cinema - for nearly 188 films - from 1937 to 1981, including outfits for Elizabeth Taylor in Cleopatra in 1964, which earned her the Oscar for best costume design.


Marilyn et la robe
Marilyn and the dress


mm_dress_by_renie-as_young  Marilyn Monroe porte cette longue robe noire satinée aux manches courtes, au décolleté transparent et à la forme de bustier fermé par une cocarde, pour le film As young as you feel (Rendez-moi ma femme) en 1951. Elle en fit les essais costumes le 14 décembre 1950 (voir photo ci-contre). C'est une robe de coupe droite simple et glamour, qui dessine les courbes du corps sans être moulante, ressérée à la taille par une fine ceinture noire, chic et classique, aux aspects intemporels qui reste encore aujourd'hui moderne. Marilyn la porte avec des sandales ouvertes noires. Dans le film, elle accessoirise la robe d'un foulard de mousseline de soie transparent et pailleté, d'un collier noir ras de cou, de deux fins bracelets au poignet droit et d'une paire de gants blancs.

Marilyn Monroe wears this long satin black dress with short sleeves, a transparent neckline and the shape of a bustier closed with a cockade, for the film As young as you feel in 1951. She did the costume tests in December 14, 1950 (see photo opposite). It is a simple and glamorous straight cut dress, which draws the curves of the body without being tight, tightened at the waist by a thin black belt, chic and classic, with timeless aspects that remains modern today. Marilyn wears it with black open sandals. In the film, she accessorizes the dress with a sheer, sequined chiffon scarf, a black choker necklace, two thin bracelets on the right wrist and a pair of white gloves.

Lot 1032: MARILYN MONROE SOMETHING'S GOT TO GIVE DRESS 
A Marilyn Monroe worn dress from her final film, Something's Got to Give (20th Century Fox, 1962). The figure-hugging silk crepe dress is printed with scattered painterly roses in shades of persimmon and deep cherry with a plunging V back. The interior of the studio constructed dress has hand finished details, is lined with ivory souffle, and has boning to the waistline. Jean Louis was the costume designer on the film. Monroe wore this dress when her character, who was proclaimed dead and returns from being stranded on an island for five years, is introduced in the film and reunited with her children, who do not realize she is their mother. Monroe was fired from the film, and while the studio tried to replace her with Lee Remick, the film's leading man, Dean Martin, refused to finish the film without Monroe. Monroe's untimely death came less than a month after she was let go from the production.
In 1989, raw footage of the uncompleted movie was discovered in 20th Century Fox’s film vault by the producers of Fox Entertainment News, who edited 37 minutes of the film, featured in the FEN documentary Marilyn: Something’s Got to Give (Fox Network, 1990). The edited footage was later re-purposed in AMC’s 2001 documentary Marilyn Monroe: The Final Days (Prometheus Entertainment), which aired on what would have been Monroe’s 75th birthday.

The lounge also appears in the film A Royal Scandal (20th Century Fox, 1945) in the scene where Catherine the Great, played by Tallulah Bankhead, seductively questions Lieutenant Alexei Chernoff, played by William Eythe.

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.

Lot 809: MARILYN MONROE OVERCOAT
 A Marilyn Monroe fawn colored silk overcoat with black velvet collar detail and apricot satin lining. Seven-button closure and two exterior pockets. No size or maker’s label present. Fits size 8 dress form.
Monroe’s affection for this coat is documented by many photos of her wearing it during the years 1956-1959.

Accompanying the couple in Miller’s black ’56 T-Bird was Marilyn Monroe Productions business associate and favored photographer, Milton Greene. Other extant photos include Monroe and Miller in June 26, 1959 as they departed New York’s Lennox Hill Hospital in New York City after Monroe's hospitalization for gynecological surgery.
This coat has been on continuous exhibit since 2010 at owner’s “Marshhaven” residence, Heritage Plantation, Pawleys Island, SC. The coat has been climate and UV protected.

Lot 712: EARL MORAN (AMERICAN, 1893-1984) MARILYN MONROE NUDE
 An oil on canvas painting of Marilyn Monroe reclining nude in bed. Signed middle right “Earl Moran.”
Earl Moran was a prominent pin-up artist during the 1930s and 1940s with a stylish flair that helped sell millions of calendars for publishers Brown & Bigelow. In 1946, Moran had the good fortune of meeting an aspiring model named Norma Jeane Dougherty, soon to become famous as Marilyn Monroe. Dozens of photographs were taken of Monroe in various poses, which Moran then used to paint seductive nudes in oil and pastel, portraying Monroe as a blonde, a redhead, and even as a brunette. The painting shown here was purchased by the consignor's wife directly from Moran after they met him at the Laguna Art Festival. The consignor fondly recalls how Moran explained to them that the model for the painting was a young woman named Norma Jeane Dougherty.

That project never reached fruition, and this is the only known cast prepared this way. On one side the cast looks like the original; the back shows the cast in negative relief.

When he taught at the school himself, he used these X-rays to ensure that students were paying attention. Monroe was said to have known about the X-rays and their use, about which she said, "Isn't that sweet." Monroe's hospital visit was said to be for her chronic endometriosis, or as her doctor's described it, "For correction of a female disorder she has suffered for years." Monroe was in the hospital for several days and was filmed by the press when she left the hospital.

lot 981: MARILYN MONROE INSCRIBED PHOTOGRAPH
A photograph of Marilyn Monroe mounted to board and inscribed on the board “Oh George,/ You’re a genius!/ Marilyn Monroe.” The black and white image was taken by Cecil Beaton and said to be Monroe’s favorite image of herself.
The consignor relates that in the late 1950s he attended an event at Frank Sinatra’s Palm Springs home as a guest of Sammy Davis Jr. The consignor remembers the photograph being given by Monroe, who was also a guest of Sinatra’s, to Davis’ valet, whom he named as “George.” This is a possible inaccuracy and may have been given to Frank Sinatra’s longtime valet, George Jacobs. The consignor was given the image by the valet George, who said he could not take the item back to Los Angeles. The consignor has had the photograph in his possession since that time.

Robe noire portée à Londres

Black dress with a bare midriff covered in chiffon
robe noire ceinturée d'une mousseline de soie

dress-1956-07-15-savoy

Cette robe a été conçue par le créateur américain James Galanos, qui fut sacré à la conception de la "parfaite robe noire". Il est devenu connu pour ses robes de cocktail en crêpe de laine. Il créa aussi des costumes de cinéma dans les années 1950s. 

C'est une tenue de la garde robe personnelle de Marilyn Monroe: c'est une robe assez longue, très avant-gardiste pour son époque. Le côté classique et sobre (robe noire à la découpe droite), est assorti d'une provocation avec un large turban, cousu sur la robe, de mousseline de soie transparente qui enroule la taille et laisse apercevoir le ventre à travers le tissu. Marilyn a minimisé les accessoires: elle ne porte aucun bijou, mais seulement des gants blancs, et des chaussures noires.
En janvier 1957, the 'Assiocated Press' rapporte que "Marilyn définit la tendance du style britannique.
La robe qu'elle a porté l'été dernier a gagné l'approbation des faiseurs de mode de Londres. Pas moins que le couturier personnel de la reine Elizabeth, Norman Hartnell, a dévoilé dans sa nouvelle collection de printemps des tenues au ventre nu voilé". 

Elle ne porte la robe qu'à un seul événement public: le 15 juillet 1956 à Londres. D'abord, pour la conférence de presse donnée au Savoy Hotel avec Arthur Miller et Lawrence Olivier, où elle arrive avec un manteau ivoire en satin à double boutonnage de perles et avec de larges revers, apposé sur ses épaules:

Puis, de retour à Parkside House avec son mari Arthur Miller, ils posent ensemble pour les photographes dans le jardin. Marilyn ôte les gants blancs:

La robe a été vendue lors de la vente aux enchères organisée par Christies en octobre 1999. Estimée entre 30 000 et 50 000 Dollars, elle fut vendue pour la somme de 74 000 Dollars.
Description: A COUTURE COCKTAIL DRESS BY GALANOS Of black wool crpe, the bare midriff with chiffon overlay, labeled Galanos and Bergdorf Goodman, On the Plaza, New York, the tag inscribed, MIS MONROE, DATE: 6/22/56 No Maltide.

Robe Beige au gros noeud - de There's no business

Beige Dress
robe beige au gros noeud 

tnb_dress

Cette robe beige a été conçue par le créateur et couturier de la 20th Century Fox, William "Billy" Travilla pour le film There's no business like show business (La Joyeuse Parade) tourné au printemps / été 1954. Marilyn Monroe fit les essais de test costumes pour cette robe le 26 juin 1954:

Dans le film, elle porte la tenue dans une courte séquence, avec une scène où elle est dans le bureau des dirigeants et dans l'autre, elle discute avec Donald O'Connor (sur le blog: voir les captures , les photos de la scène , du tournage):

tnb_sc07_film_010_1 tnb_sc07_film_011_1 film_tnb_with_walter_lang_by_phil_burchman 

C'est une robe en laine, avec un col cravate drapé, qui forme un gros noeud au niveau du court décolleté en V. La robe est accompagnée d'un fourreau en renard doublé à l'intérieur de soie, de couleur miel. C'est une tenue chic et plutôt sage pour Marilyn, de par la longueur de la robe (au niveau des mollet), et elle n'a pas de décolleté plongeant, et couvre l'ensemble du corps, sans trop mouler ce dernier, bien qu'elle se porte près du corps et souligne la silhouette.
La tenue est accessoirisée par des gants de même couleur, ce qui renforce l'aspect sobre et chic de la tenue.

Marilyn ne va porter cette tenue qu'une seule fois en public: le 9 septembre 1954, lors de son arrivée à New York pour les besoins du tournage de "Seven Year Itch" (Sept ans de rélfexion), où Marilyn, dans toute sa splendeur, va briller devant les journalistes très nombreux venus l'acceuillir, en envoyant une multitude de baisers à ses admirateurs présents sur le tarmac et en croisant et décroisant les jambes à de multiples reprises, afin d'accentuer son côté sexy et glamour:

Robe de soirée en tulle noire

Evening Gown of black tulle
robe de soirée en tulle noire

renie_dress-1

Cette robe en mousseline décolletée noire avec un voilage transparent bleu lavande, a été conçue par le créateur et couturier Renié avec la collaboration du couturier de la 20th Century Fox, Charles Le Maire. Le décolleté échancré est assorti d'un voile de tulle transparent qui peut se porter relevé au-dessus des épaules (comme à la soirée des Oscars) ou tiré vers le bas des épaules (comme pour les portraits publicitaires). Le jupon évasé contient une multitude de sequins brillants et lumineux qui reflètent la lumière.

Marilyn Monroe a porté la robe à trois reprises:

  • A la prestigieuse cérémonie des Oscars le 29 mars 1951 où elle était chargée de remettre l'Oscar de "La meilleur prise de son" ("The Best Achievement in Sound") qui alla à Thomas Moulton pour le film "All About Eve" dans lequel Marilyn joua un second rôle. Un petit incident s'était produit juste avant l'entrée en scène de Marilyn: le jupon de la robe s'était déchirée. Marilyn fut alors prise de panique et d'angoisse et fut consolée par les actrices Jane Greer, Debra Paget et Gloria DeHaven. Une couturière arriva précipitemment pour recoudre la déchirure. A son arrivée à la cérémonie, Marilyn avait assorti la robe à un fourreau blanc:

  • Marilyn posa pour des portraits publicitaires sous l'objectif de John Florea. L'une de ces photographies fut publiée dans le magazine Collier's du 8 septembre 1951:

Marilyn Monroe a emprunté la robe au département costume de la Fox. La robe avait en effet été portée par l'actrice Valentina Cortese dans le film "The House on Telegraph Hill" ("La maison sur la colline"), réalisé par Robert Wise et tourné plusieurs mois avant la cérémonie des Oscars (le film est sorti sur les écrans américains le 12 mai 1951).
