I'm so confused when it comes to these pictures.

I've typed in her name at google and they came up with this picture.So it seems like she's the one and only Sheilah Graham.

Great pic, mandy....
Ok, here's the deal: If that's really Sheila Graham (which we can't be sure off given that so much wrong information is out there) then the pics with the cape/gloves is from the wedding reception (and skolsky in the regular tie)...
That simply means that the OTHER pics, without cape and skolsky in a bowtie, were taken on a seperate occasion and we have it backwards....
I will snoop around some more....

Check this out...a movie starring Gregory peck and Deborah Kerr based on Columnist sheila graham relationship with a Scott Fitzgerald...thought this was of some minor interest along my snooping.....

Is there a resemblance to the real woman?

Great snooping!!!!!!
We can say with confidence that the pics of marilyn in the cape/white gloves and skolsky in the plain tie are definetly the wedding reception.....why else would they be hanging out with her, all dressed up, sipping champagne?
The other pics (skolsky in bowtie) are from another occasion....BUT WHAT????

Again, great Job!

I am sure happy we are getting somewhere (IMG:http://www.everlasting-star.net/boards/style_emoticons/default/mf_w00t1.gif) ! The lady next to MM is indeed Graham, I have this other shot of them together...
This leaves the problem of the other photos (IMG:http://www.everlasting-star.net/boards/style_emoticons/default/hmm.gif) ... Is there someone who owns the 1954 Skolsky magazine he published on MM, maybe he gives some info their, if the photos were used in the mag (IMG:http://www.everlasting-star.net/boards/style_emoticons/default/unsure.gif) . I can not access my collection at the moment and am unable to check it out (IMG:http://www.everlasting-star.net/boards/style_emoticons/default/cry.gif) !

Maybe both occasions have to do with Graham, maybe there was a rehearsal dinner or an engagement party?

Maybe both occasions have nothing to do with eachother and we keep lumping them together and that's what's confusing.
I don't think that there was a rehearsal dinner that Marilyn would attend....that's usually for the family and bridal party.
No, the occasion that we haven't figured out yet is some kind of function or party in early 1953 that we don't know of, YET!!

Ok, i read the article about Sheila Graham and the photo of her with marilyn, identifying it as "a party"....
Obviously it was sheila's wedding because she has a HEADPIECE on and a white dress....comon now! It wasn't just any ole party....unless people run around with head pieces on every day of the week.... (IMG:http://www.everlasting-star.net/boards/style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)
The two sets of pictures in question, i still believe, have nothing to do with eachother.
Marilyn looks slightly different, and most importantly, skolsky has a totally different outfit on.
Now we just have to figure out where those pics are from...i think the sheila graham wedding ones are figured out.

You don't think that Jeannette might have a point??Maybe the reception took place a day or two before the wedding(that's why Syd has two different outfits??).And it wouldn't be the first time Marilyn wore the same outfit to different events.
I don't know I'm just brainstorming.

Ok, i believe these are the sheila graham reception photos....sheila has a headpiece on and white dress..this looks like a wedding outfit to me...skolsky is in a suit and tie.
Marilyn has white gloves and a black cape style jacket on.

Here Marilyn and skolsky are sitting at a table. He is wearing a tuxedo and bowtie, Marilyn looks similar to the other pics but there are subtle differences.
Why would skolsky change his entire outfit?? Doesn't make sense....
I thought we had this solved....arghhhh!!!! (IMG:http://www.everlasting-star.net/boards/style_emoticons/default/no.gif)

Reception took place a day or two before the actual wedding? When does THAT happen??? (IMG:http://www.everlasting-star.net/boards/style_emoticons/default/blush.gif)
Sorry, but why are we trying to force these two sets of pictrues together anyways??? Can't it be some other event other than the sheila wedding???
Let's brainstorm together.......
(In my book, however, the reception always follows a wedding....am I wrong?)
HELP...lol

Maybe it was a rehearsal or so.And I was wrong what I meant to say was maybe the reception was later(my mistake sorry).

Ok, picture me on the floor ripping my hair out.... (IMG:http://www.everlasting-star.net/boards/style_emoticons/default/scared.gif)
I have an Idea....let's seperate these sets of pics and find another occasion for one of them OTHER than the sheila graham wedding.... (IMG:http://www.everlasting-star.net/boards/style_emoticons/default/blink.gif)
I am looking to see what else was going on socially in early 1953 for Marilyn....maybe we'll get to the bottom of this....
I feel strongly that when you go to a wedding and reception you don't change an outfit that same day (especially for a man)....
I also don't think that marilyn and skolsky would have attended some kind of 'rehearsal' of the wedding. That's usually reserved for family and the wedding party. Unless Marilyn was a bridesmaid and i know she was not.
So...logic tells me that marilyn and skolsky went to a fancy party (he was wearing a tuxedo and bowtie after all)..... (IMG:http://www.everlasting-star.net/boards/style_emoticons/default/rolleyes1.gif) ....so, there was something else going on that they attended and ot most likely has absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with the graham wedding....
Anyways, that's my gut feeling....... (IMG:http://www.everlasting-star.net/boards/style_emoticons/default/coolio.gif)
