I was inspired by a recent blog post from Dolly’s Dress Up Box (http://dollysdressupbox.blogspot.com) about an exhibit at the Getty Images Gallery in London, which focuses on the incomparable vintage style icon Marilyn Monroe. Marilyn might be an obvious choice for Old Hollywood glamour, being copied and admired time and time again, but by looking at past photographs of her you can see just why that is.
