Londoners can get a rare glimpse at Hollywood icon Marilyn Monroe in this exhibition at Getty Images Gallery, now on.

In commemoration of the 50 years since Monroe’s death, the ‘Marilyn’ exhibition will pair unique photos of Monroe with original dresses and costumes worn by the iconic movie star.

Photographs will range from Monroe’s early years as an aspiring actress through her rise to international stardom. Accompanying each photo will be an original film costume or dress from the collection of David Gainsborough Roberts, owner of one of the largest collections of Marilyn Monroe memorabilia in the world.
