A stroll through SoHo..

November 29, 2012

Last weekend I was wandering round SoHo, doing some shopping when I stumbled upon a small Marilyn Monroe exhibit. It had been put on by Erno Lazlo as a gift to New York and if that wasn’t enough, it was also free!

The exhibit featured clothes that Monroe had worn as well as some of her personal items. In many cases, it showed the item and then a photo of Marilyn wearing it. It was only small, but I really enjoyed it, and finding it out of the blue made it even better..

Nancy Beaton as a Shooting Star 1928

Cecil Beaton is regarded as one of the greatest photographers ever.
He photographs fashion and portraits and has taken pictures of some of the most well-known celebrities and icons of the last century.
I love the beauty his portraits bring out and the way he captures private and more touching moments..
