Fine Jewelry Options Now Available for Marilyn Monroe Brand

DIAMONDS, ANYONE?: In her role as Lorelei Lee in the 1953 film “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes,” Marilyn Monroe performed “Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend.” Now Marilyn aficionados can “get the look” from the M.Monroe Collection, a fine jewelry line priced between $ 150 for a simple sterling silver chain to $ 350,000 for the statement piece, the Stellar Cosmos Necklace, in 18-karat rose gold featuring 11 white diamonds in varying sizes.

Grassroots organization Swing Left is rallying Democratic voters to head to the polls in time for the midterm elections — with a party.
The national group is holding a fund-raising dinner and soirée on Tuesday in efforts to put blue politicians in the House of Representatives and move the House majority away from the GOP.
The event will take place at Hook Studio in Brooklyn. Hosts of the party include The Wing’s Audrey Gelman, designer Mike Eckhaus of Eckhaus Latta and photographer Steven Klein, among others.

The artist Marilyn Minter will be on hand to sell and sign T-shirts bearing the message “Resist.” DJ collective The Misshapes is slated to supply the tunes during the after party, which runs from 9 to 11 p.m.
During the family-style dinner, guests will engage in a discussion helmed by activist DeRay Mckesson, who is involved in the Black Lives Matter movement and was active during the Ferguson, Mo., and Baltimore protests. He also is a cofounder of Campaign Zero, which aims to end police brutality. You might recognize him by his signature blue Patagonia down vest, spotted at many an industry party.

Maggie Marilyn Pre-Fall 2018

“Every collection is a springboard for the next,” stated Maggie “Marilyn” Hewitt during a morning walk-through of her pre-fall 2018 and fall 2018 collections. Upon walking into the room, this feeling is apparent in Hewitt’s pre-fall assortment through identifiable brand colors: lively reds, pinks and greens that transition to subdued and neutralized hues for fall. The feeling floats throughout both collections à la athletic details, flowy silk dresses and tailored separates with feminine twists.
For both collections, Hewitt played with textures. There was a great gingham trenchcoat with “grandpa plaid” panels as well as a smocked long-sleeve button-down for pre-fall, while fall’s standout included a playful tartan tennis-skirt-trouser-hybrid pant paired with a one-shouldered crisp white top. There was plenty of updated Maggie Marilyn staples: athletic hoodies and bombers with organza ruffles, modern blazers with sleeves that could be worn down or cinched up, flowy silk tops and striped day dresses. The overall theme of the collections could be summed into Hewitt’s catchword of the season: easy. In her case, this meant creating superchic yet relaxed throw-on wear, whenever or wherever clothes that walk the line between masculine and feminine. “I think that’s the always the thing for me, the fine

From Marilyn Monroe to Madonna, Here’s a Brief History of the All-American Denim Jacket

If jeans are as American as apple pie, then denim jackets are the vanilla ice cream on top: cool, classic, and always appealing. And while Proenza Schouler, Valentino, and Rachel Comey may have all sent their own trendy iterations down the fall 2015 runways, the denim jacket had already been trending for, oh, just 130 years or so.

The first denim jacket was created circa 1880 by denim legend and Levi’s founder Levi Strauss. Strauss is credited with designing the first-ever jeans in 1870 as a durable, breathable utility garment for cowboys, railroad engineers, and miners to wear during the gold rush out West. Soon after the runaway success of jeans, he gave the world a top to match and dubbed it the Triple Pleat Blouse.

We spoke with Tracey Panek, a historian at Levi Strauss & Co., who said that the denim jackets were ideal for laborers. “Our denim jacket was incredibly durable for various types of manual labor,” Panek said. “The horizontal seams holding down the pleats could be removed to give the wearer extra room.”

While the Levi’s denim jacket has evolved since then, the functionality and innate coolness of the piece has earned it the status as an all-American rebel’s outerwear of choice. “By the ’50s, wearing denim was often associated with juvenile delinquency,” Panek said. “Jeans were even banned in some schools, and denim became the nonconformists’ uniform of choice.” From James Dean’s iconic denim-jacket clad character in Rebel Without a Cause in the ’50s to Rihanna’s deconstructed versions today, jean jackets buck convention, express individuality, and epitomize anti-establishment cool.

Here’s a timeline of denim jackets that will inspire you to pull yours out right now.

levis-denim-jacket-1800sCirca 1880: The original Levi’s Triple Pleat Blouse designed by Strauss. One unique feature of this jacket is the vertical grain of the fabric. Its name is derived from the three pleats that run on either side of the center front.


1955: James Dean captured the angst of American youth and style in Rebel Without a Cause.


1961: Marilyn Monroe is known for her glamorous red carpet gowns, but her off-duty looks—which included jackets and all sorts of denim— were just as compelling.


1962: Rock ‘n’ roll and denim went hand-in-hand starting in the ’60s, as epitomized by this street style shot in Zurich.


1970: It model of the decade Veruschka in a denim jacket and jeans.


1971: John Lennon wore lots of denim jackets in the ’70s with flares, T-shirts, and always a quirky touch, like this flower boutonniere. Here he is at the Cannes Film Festival.


1980: Big shoulders and boxy silhouettes ruled the ’80s, and a 20-year-old Sarah Jessica Parker was on it with her oversize jean jacket.


1984: Bruce Springsteen’s all-American denim wardrobe on the Born in the USA album made everyone want to dance in their jean jackets in the mid-’80s.


1991: Geena Davis’ jean jacket in Thelma and Louise was likely the least obvious indicator of her character’s disdain for authority.


1992: Claudia Schiffer defined ’90s denim with her sultry Guess campaigns.


2001: Madonna, a fan of the denim jacket in the ’80s, got sleeker for her Ray of Light video with denim-on-denim— and very little underneath.


2001: Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake expressed their young love with matching denim at the American Music Awards, creating an image now seared into the pop world’s subconscious. Note Justin’s one-button denim blazer.


2013: Miley Cyrus used the jean jacket to segue her from sweet Disney star to the edgy Miley of today.


2013: Few can go from couture pouf dresses to shredded denim, but Rihanna certainly pulls it off with aplomb.


2015: The Levi’s Trucker jacket, derived from the initial 1880 style, continues to be a classic, and the brand offers many variations on it. The latest is the Commuter, designed for those who commute to work by bike. It features reflective zip tape and ventilations to keep cool.


2015: Designer Rachel Comey is known for her inventive plays on denim. For fall, she reinvents the denim jacket by adding shearling and zippers for a moto feel.

Meet Your New Style Icon: Marilyn Monroe, Circa Her College Years


The show notes for Max Mara‘s fall 2015 collection taught me something I didn’t know: that Marilyn Monroe attended college classes (and loved reading, leaving behind a 400-book library when she died). The above snap of Marilyn is from a 1950 photo shoot in the backyard of a Hollywood agent, one of the years right before her career really took off, and, according to The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe by J. Randy Taraborrelli, a time period when she was taking literature classes at UCLA.


The majority of photos we’ve all seen of Marilyn are either movie stills or promotional pics and they all play to her sex-bomb persona. There’s a whole other strata of her personal style though—less documented but worth paying attention to—where she’s off the clock and wearing classic basics that are less curve-hugging.


I dug through a lot of vintage snaps, and these were the most inspiring I saw. If you’re craving more, Life shared images from a shoot 24-year-old Marilyn did when she was still relatively unknown (so much so that the magazine declined to publish them). Her clothes, monogrammed shirt included, hinted at that bookish side, as did the photographer’s note that the images were taken when “we’d go out to Griffith Park and she’d read poetry.”


I’m a big fan of the way the star’s cerebral side has been reinterpreted for now. “Marilyn’s ‘me’ time menswear classics are reinvented…silhouettes are shrunken or maxi-sized,” the Max Mara notes read. “A vision which is brainy, sexy, and modern.” The show opened with Gigi Hadid, a modern-day bombshell of Marilyn caliber, pulling a camel coat around her. Joan Smalls followed in a chunky cardigan sweater that was inspired by one Marilyn wore in an iconic 1962 beach photo shoot, and Lindsey Wixson wore a camel set that turned the sweatshirt into something any sex kitten would covet.

Kate Upton Has A Marilyn Moment During Windy Photo Shoot

The wind got the best of Kate Upton’s skirt during a recent photo shoot in sunny Miami.

Upton had a Marilyn moment when the black and white skirt she was wearing blew up in the wind during a photo shoot on the terrace of a private residence Saturday. Paparazzi photos showed her laughing at the minor wardrobe mishap.

The 22-year-old was in her home state shooting for Express’ latest clothing campaign.

“It’s really exciting for me to be the brand ambassador for Express this year because it is a brand that I have grown up with and always wear,” Upton told People after shooting the fall ads back in June. She said her first piece of Express clothing was “definitely a tank top — I grew up in Florida!”

Marilyn Monroe

Marilyn Monroe

Born Norma Jean Mortenson, Marilyn Monroe was an actress, singer, and sex symbol whose influence far outlasted her short life. Contributors to “Fan Phenomena: Marilyn Monroe “situate the platinum blonde starlet’s omnipresent cultural relevance within the zeitgeist of current popular culture and explore the influence she has had on numerous elements of it. Her aesthetics and images have been reappropriated, recreated, imitated, and emulated by such celebrities as Lindsay Lohan, Jayne Mansfield, Drew Barrymore, Anna Nicole Smith, and Madonna. The quintessential American sex symbol, Monroe was an influential style icon on a spectrum of designers, including Dolce and Gabbana, Betsey Johnson, and Nike, all of whom have named lines of clothing, shoes, or accessories after the star. The essays here explore representations of Monroe in visual culture by looking at the ways she is reimagined in visual art while also considering how her posthumous appearance and image are appropriated in current advertisements. With an inside look at the universe of Marilyn Monroe impersonators and look-alike contests for both males and females, the book also explores numerous homages made to Monroe in music, from the 1979 opera “Marilyn “by Lorenzo Ferrero to Nicki Minaj’s song, “Marilyn Monroe.” The definitive guide to one of the most famous women who ever lived, the book will be essential reading for any scholar of twentieth-century American popular culture.

The Museo Ferragamo in Florence pays homage to Marilyn Monroe with a major exhibition and a catalog dedicated to her a half century after her death. Like many divas of the silver screen, Marilyn Monroe loved to wear Salvatore Ferragamo shoes. The exhibition and catalogue dedicated to her are the result of long research and preparatory work, presenting items from the actress’s wardrobe worn on the set or in her private life, as well as important documents that reveal the actress’s managerial side, her skill and determination in building and grooming her success. In this volume, the curators have sought to interpret a comprehensive collection of famous photographs taken in Marilyn’s day-to-day life (by such notable photographers as Beaton, Stern, Barris, Greene) that portray Marilyn in “classic” poses by comparing them with famous works of art from the past that represent similar poses and expressions, from the balanced pathos of French painter Jean-Baptiste Greuze’s Alessandro morente to Botticelli’s Venus. The catalog gathers together all the photos of clothing and Ferragamo footwear, the documents in the exhibition, and a very large group of photographs and exceptional works of art from such prestigious institutions as the Museo Canova and the Warhol Foundation, and from private collections in Italy and abroad. The catalog also includes essays addressing such themes as classic and modern beauty, Marilyn’s biography, and her relationship with other women, as well as an introduction by Stefania Ricci and Sergio Risaliti, exhibition curators.
