Own A Piece Of Hollywood History

We love looking to movies for fashion inspiration but can’t imagine actually owning Marilyn Monroe‘s pink dress from “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes” or the carpet bag from “Mary Poppins.” For starters, Marilyn’s dress would never fit. However, movie fanatics and fashion lovers who want a piece of history will want to prep for antique company Profiles in History‘s Hollywood Memorabilia auction. The collection of iconic costumes from famous movies begins June 10, and Profiles in History claims Marilyn’s pink dress is “the most important film dress to ever come to auction” and expects it to sell for anywhere between $150,000 and $250,000. Meanwhile, Julie Andrews’ bag could grab $10,000 to $12,000. Clearly you’d have to be majorly rich to place a bid. [Stylelist] Keep reading »

Jennifer Lopez Makes Like Marilyn Monroe On “Lopez Tonight”

Celebrities loooooove Marilyn Monroe. Lindsay Lohan, Gwen Stefani, Christina Aquilera, and Scarlet Johansson all channel her on a regular basis. And last night, Jennifer Lopez became the latest to make like the original blond bombshell when she slinked onto “Lopez Tonight” in a floor-length dress and blond wig to sing “Happy Birthday” to George Lopez, just like Marilyn did for John F.

Strange Marilyn Monroe Memorabilia For Sale

I get that Marilyn Monroe was like the biggest sex symbol of all time. But how obsessed with her would you have to be to want to buy her chest x-ray? Seems creepy to me, but the auction house manager charged with selling her 1954 x-ray is confident that people will want this “ultimate look into the legend.” Yeah, that doesn’t sound stalkerish at all. In fact, he thinks this chest x-ray, taken while she was undergoing treatment for endometriosis, will bring in at least $1,200. Not me said the flea—I don’t want a dead woman’s x-ray in my house. Nor do I want her psychiatrist’s couch or her financial records, which are also up for auction. [Newser]

After the jump, some more Marilyn memorabilia that you could have had but you’re probably glad you don’t. Keep reading »

Does Photoshop Retouching Really Deserve Its Bad Image?

Retouching is getting a very bad name in the media these days, and photographer Jean-Baptiste Mondino is fighting back against a possible law in France that would require any Photoshop image to clearly mention its changes via a warning label. While instances of bad airbrushing and tampering have become extremely apparent as of late, he’s out to show that not all alterations are bad. In fact, he wants to prove that they’re more commonplace than anyone realizes. This weekend, he published a photo of a woman Photoshopped in Libération’s Next magazine, but instead of giving her skinnier hips, he enhanced her curves (reminiscent of Beth Dittos’ Love cover).
