Hi guys, it's been a heck of a long time since I last posted! Anyway, I'm looking for more pictures from a fashion-shoot-type session Marilyn did in New York in the late '50's. She wore a black A-line-type dress with a huge white bow at the collar and elbow-length white gloves, and in many of the pictures, she's posing near a white piano. I bet this session is somewhere in the "Specific Sessions" subforum but I don't know who the photographer was so I don't know where to look. I'm attaching a photo from the session that I found recently in "Rare Pictures" to see if any of you recognize it.

Thanks,

-Joe-

Here you go, Joe (IMG:http://www.everlasting-star.net/boards/style_emoticons/default/bye1.gif) I don't know the photographer, but it was in Marilyn's NY apartment on April the 29th 1958. I don't think there's a specific thread for these, so I won't dare embark on a quest to find them (IMG:http://www.everlasting-star.net/boards/style_emoticons/default/laughing.gif)

The bow was a little too overpowering, IMO. Oh well, we all have our moments! She was only human (IMG:http://www.everlasting-star.net/boards/style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

I always thought it was a cute frock too, Dwane. It's very girly. (IMG:http://www.everlasting-star.net/boards/style_emoticons/default/marilynbybrandon_190.gif)

Thanks very much, Ileana! (IMG:http://www.everlasting-star.net/boards/style_emoticons/default/jumpymm.gif) I'd seen scattered photos of this shoot in books and online, but hadn't gotten a bunch of them all together in one place before.

I do have to agree, that bow is rather excessive. The dress itself is very slinky and the gloves are perfect, but the bow...well...

Tell me the honest truth now, folks. When looking at these pics, do any of you have the stray thought crossing your mind that Marilyn, having been disappointed in her quest for a role in "The Brothers Karmazov", was angling for a role in the next remake of "Little Lord Fauntleroy" instead? (IMG:http://www.everlasting-star.net/boards/style_emoticons/default/scared.gif) (IMG:http://www.everlasting-star.net/boards/style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

By the way, in the sixth picture, Marilyn is raising one leg in a gesture very much like what Anne Hathaway, in "The Princess Diaries", calls the "foot-popping kiss". You know what I mean; the moment in classic movies (especially romantic comedies) where the heroine kisses her guy and is so overwhelmed that one of her feet "pops" right off the floor. Jane Russell did that in "Son of Paleface", but I'm not sure - did Marilyn ever do it in any of her movies? Real life? (Even in striking a pose with some lucky fellow?)

This one is gorgeous. Think it needs to be flipped though. No photographer noted. Is there a thread for this session?

A bigger version I found on Ebay. The seller credited Sam Shaw as the photographer in the description. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/hmm.gif)
