Unseen belongings of legend Marilyn Monroe unveiled ++REPLAY++

(11 May 2012) LEADIN Never-before-seen belongings of the Hollywood legend, Marilyn Monroe, are on display in Los Angeles. The show marks the 50th anniversary of the movie star's death at the age of 36. STORYLINE: One of the world's most iconic actresses, Marilyn Monroe, is the star of a million dollar exhibition of some of her most personal belongings. It's taking place here in Hollywood, 50 years after her premature death. Over 50,000 fans from all over the world are expected to arrive to commemorate the anniversary. This exhibit is housed inside an old bank vault, and the contents inside are valuable - maybe priceless because of their association with Monroe. The Marilyn Bank Vault Collection at Ripley's Believe It Or Not is Hollywood's ultimate homage to Marilyn, remembering an era and commemorating the queen of the town. Among the many Marilyn items are a hand knitted cardigan, currently valued at USD $170,000. She wore this on her last photo shoot. These are all personal items belonging to the owner of the Ripley's company. Andrea Silverman, general manager of Ripley's Believe It Or Not says: "We have her famous sweater which was actually the last photograph that she did before her death. You're gong to see her makeup case. It took her over three hours to do her makeup. You guys have to come see all the cool stuff that we have. We have her shoes. We have her nightgown when she was married to Joe DiMaggio for her honeymoon" Personal items include a dresser top of Marilyn's cosmetics and makeup case. She was rumoured to take three hours to put on her makeup on every morning. An old Revlon nail polish bottle sits next to an Erno Laszlo face cream, lavender smelling salts, and an Elizabeth Arden eyeshadow. This black lingerie was worn by Marilyn for baseball legend Joe DiMaggio on their wedding night. Slippers with glass and white faux fur straps were valued 10 years ago at over USD $100,000. Also on display is a USD $12,000 lace nightcap as well as a bathing suit that was quite scandalous at the time for being a midriff baring two piece, in US size 16. A polka dot dress on show is known as the willpower dress because it took sheer willpower in the 50s to wear a strapless dress. Head scarves on display were worn to shield herself from the paparazzi. Jeanne Wolf, a veteran Hollywood journalist says: "We loved and adored her and still do. There's something about her very strong. You know she came form utter poverty. She should have had absolutely no exceptions in life and rose to be well arguably the most famous movie star in the world. There was something about her, that no one looked like her. No one reminded you of her. She invented herself. She created herself and in the midst of all of that, there was something so utterly exposed and fragile about her." Her dresses on display showcase her well documented size fluctuations. Going from 37-23-34 and a US size two when she began her career to 38-23-36 in 1962 - a US size 12. A larger than life poster shows her famous dress blowing scene from the movie "The Seven Year Itch." There are 40 pairs of shoes on display, including a pair of red Salvatore Ferragamo shoes which he made just for her. There is a copy of Marilyn's footprints in cement that were given personally to Sid Grauman, the owner of the famed Grauman's Chinese Theatre. They were made in 1953 on the night of the premiere of the classic film 'Gentlemen Prefer Blondes'. A lock of her hair as a child sits in a drawer for tourists to get a glimpse of. It is reported she experimented with 10 different blonde shades before deciding on her legendary platinum colour. Wolf says people will like the feeling of being inside the vault to see her things.

Hollywood exploited her innocents and made her a sex kitten for men to drool over and women to want to be like her......I'm sure after a while she realized it wasn't worth it.and they still do it today.

I love her image too bad for Gemini tiger that made her mentally crazy to the point that she wasn't going to last long but at least she died in her reverse year the Year of the Tiger very jealous hearted and insecure and I really a daughter I think she was fine I think she was the bomb in terms of blondes I will always think of her Jean Harlow Jayne Mansfield and Lana Turner but I say above all things though she had the beauty she was never really happy had a lot of good men Richmond Joe DiMaggio Arthur and tons of others but she chose to violate God's law when it tells you not to participate in adultery and because she did that she lost her life I think if we all can take out wonderful Beauty and not just display it but stay away from adultery I think we all in a better place may God Rest her very soul💃💅💆🏼💆💗😎😍.

Who would want to wear any of that garbage? MM was a whore. She slept with single men and married men. A home wrecker. Even President Kennedy was subjected to her whoredomes and she even had the nerve to call Jackie at the white house to rub it in. She was murdered because she threatened to tell the press that she was pregnant with Kennedy's baby- which i think she was, unless jfk divorced jackie to marry her. What a hoe and scandalous broad.

A lot of these items look very beat up. I wonder how mishandled they’ve been through the years.
Missy Oothoudt (28 days ago)
Well it could be a few different reasons. The way it was stored originally. How old it is. And how she took care of it. Idk about you but my bathroom stuff or some makeup containers have seen better days. They probably look older than they are haha not that anyone would actually miss me that way if I died but.

@JJ Grif Agree with you. Marilyn's mind was never calm or at ease. She should have had a better life, but alas, things were as they were. She did pretty well for a person who came from nothing. Sadly, being the biggest star in the WORLD did not fix, or help heal, her damaged psyche as she thought it would. So SAD!! You mentioned previously that you would have loved a Pucci dress. Good choice!! At the end of her life, Marilyn LOVED her Pucci dresses and blouses, and was even buried in her favourite green Pucci dress that had a scarf that hid the coroner's work. But she loved her Pucci purchases!! Marilyn's costume jewellery, and even her expensive jewellery, (her marriage band from Joe D, which was a LOVELY ring of baguette diamonds), were all banged up and the costume jewellery was all discoloured. They have all sold at auction though, so there you go. Marilyn would have been shocked by the greed/love/desire people have for her "things" today. She was such a simple woman. Not simple in the mind. Simple in longings for material things. She only ever purchased things that "spoke" to her. Best Wishes, Missditabomb.

Missditabomb I agree, so very sad, way too many burdens she carried. She deserved better. 😢

The woman watching Marilyn Monroe blue dress at 3:10 must be thinking "Damn, they said Marilyn was size 16! I am size 12 and I won't fit into any of these clothing".

Mockavel Velli (3 months ago)
julijakeit sizes were diff back then. "Today's standard clothing sizes are vastly different than they were 50 years ago. For instance, "a size 8 dress today is nearly the equivalent of a size 16 dress in 1958," according to the Washington Post. "And a size 8 dress of 1958 doesn't even have a modern-day equivalent—the waist and bust measurements of a Mad Men-era 8 come in smaller than today's size 00." So MM was like a modern size 8.

It is a little strange that it took that long to put her make-up on, I dont think she needed that nuch painting to look the way she did, she was nice without it, because her skin was almost perfect, and the shape of brows and face was very nice to. She had so much in herself but of course she had to painted so much for pictures and movies, they created her, and she followed them. Her body did not need any surgery, not all of them can say that even then or today. There were lots of beauty's back then, but she simply had it somehow. Very sad that she died so young, but I often think, what would have happent to her, if she went on as a moviestar, would age then have killed her, as age does to beauty's in Hollywood.......

Lets remember Marilyn was famous in the 50s, not 1763. If her things are well preserved thats because she died only 5o years ago.

Can her childhood hair lock be so blonde when she was actually a brown haired girl from the very beginning? It may be hers, maybe a very light brown, but to me it looks more of her hair lock from her twenties, when she had her hair dyed blonde.
