Marilyn Monroe best friends
Marilyn Monroe best friends. Dresses and jewelry of Marilyn Monroe were always admired both by fans and critics. On film set, the actress always shone. In her arsenal the diva had a large number of jewelry with diamonds, sapphires, pearls and other precious stones. But sources say that out of set the actress liked to wear shiny costume jewelry, beads and didn’t mind long “garland” of iridescent plastic. She inspired Andy Warhol and Madonna, and footage of Marilyn Monroe’s billowing white dress – the most famous in the world of cinema. But perhaps the best known image of Monroe is with pearls, which she loved.
She was born Norma Jeane Mortenson, the future Marilyn Monroe, June 1, 1926 in Los Angeles, and this year she could be 90 year old. Most of her childhood she spent in foster care until the beginning of a career in modeling. She soon caught the eye of filmmakers of the XX Century Fox, which marked the beginning of her film career.
Marilyn was given this necklace by her husband Joe DiMaggio during the honeymoon, which they spent in Japan in 1954. It consists of 44 Akoya pearls, thread length 16 inches, gold clasp with diamonds. It was bought in Japan directly from Mikimoto, so the quality is very good. Marilyn wore the necklace until the day of their divorce in Santa Monica (California), the marriage lasted only nine months.
“When Imarried Joe DiMaggio in 1954, he had already retired from baseball, but he was a wonderful athlete and had a very sensitive nature in many respects. His family were immigrants and he’d had a very difficult time when he was young. So he understood something about me, and I understood something about him, and we based our marriage on this. But just ‘something’ isn’t enough. Our marriage wasn’t very happy, and it ended in nine month”.
Sometimes she wore a necklace and after the divorce, then broke down and gave it to Paula Strasberg, her stylist, friend and teacher. Soon the owners of the necklace passed away. Daughter of Paula, Susan Strasberg gave the necklace to Mikimoto (since 1998, the company became US). As part of the museum’s collection necklace exhibited at traveling exhibitions with the support of the Natural History Museum.
Last shot of Marilyn Monroe made history as the “Marilyn’s Last Sitting” (1962) just six weeks before she died. Bert Stern photographed movie stars for Vogue. In 1982 he published a book with over 2500 photos, and instead of one, he dedicate to the actress 8 pages, this publication could serve as the impetus for a new round of the career of the actress. But became the obituary.
