Each year in June, an auction is held that contains amazing Marilyn Monroe items. I purchased my Marilyn Monroe hat from Julien’s. The current auction is taking place in Las Vegas at Planet Hollywood on June 26 and 27. I’m disappointed that I’ll be missing the public exhibit of the items by just a few days, as I’ll be in Vegas for my wedding.
You can browse the entire catalogue online at http://www.juliensauctions.com/auctions/2010/hollywood-legends/icatalog.html
Lots of Marilyn items including those from the estate of Dr. Ralph Greenson. Items include; Funeral program and chest ex-ray (which I already posted about HERE).
There is a whole section on Anna Nicole Smith’s items. I was amazed to see all of the Marilyn items she had. There are even pieces of furniture she had custom made with portraits of Marilyn. It is apparent that she was a true fan.
I received this email and thought I’d pass it on.
“As we are sure you know, Marilyn’s birthday is coming up on June 1st, but what you may not know, is that there is a huge group birthday bash being planned in New York City for Friday June 4th, 2010.
We are inviting all her fans to come dressed as Marilyn and meet at Madison Square Park for music, entertainment and other Marilyn related activites. We are trying to get New York to stop and stare at the sight of this many Marilyns in one place honoring the legend as she deserves to be honored.
Here’s to Marilyn turning 84 and being just as fabulous as ever! ”
UPDATE : I have added some photos that maryellen sent along (Thanks!)
I wanted to apologize for the lack of podcasts and updates to the website. Note: to those who have sent in tattoo photos – I haven’t forgotten about you!
I am occupied these days with Vegas wedding plans as my big day is coming soon. It is a little stressful arranging everything over the internet – so hopefully it all goes well 🙂
Here is a sneak peek at my very special bridesmaids….
