Happy birthday, Marilyn.

The statue at the beginning of the exhibition
This year Marilyn Monroe would have celebrated her 90th birthday. Because of this there is an exhibition in Amsterdam dedicated to this amazing and iconic woman.

I am a huge fan of Marilyn Monroe and I can tell you this exhibition did not disappoint me. They tried to give an impression of her outer-persona as the moviestar and the woman she was in private. Marilyn had so many different sides to her and she cannot be defined by just one or two things, she was so much more.

In this exhibition you can see clothing (also the dress of the movie The seven year itch), personal things like her lipstick or books, or furniture from her last house, personal papers and her diary, but also props from her films, costumes and things like scripts she worked with.

If you are in Amsterdam, go to De nieuwe kerk and see this exhibition, it is a must-see for every Marilyn-fan.
It is open until February 5th 2017.
