I’m pleased to report that I’m presenting a couple of talks at Albury’s MAMA as part of the exhibition on Marilyn Monroe that opens this week – from the website:
MAMA is proud to present a selection of public lectures on the life of Marilyn, celebrity and American modern art. In this second lecture opportunity, award winning writer and fashion specialist Nicole Jenkins speaks on Marilyn Monroe, her clothes, celebrity, and body image.
Marilyn Monroe’s hourglass figure defined the feminine fashions of the ’50s and was shown off to great effect in the gowns of Hollywood designers including Edith Head, Billy Travilla and Orry-Kelly. Join me in a lively talk about some of the most iconic, flattering and valuable dresses in the world and what they reveal about the complex woman who wore them.
