Christina Hendricks Channels Marilyn Monroe – What’s Hot and What’s Trending 13 July 2014

Christina Hendricks channeling Marilyn Monroe in blonde wigChristina Hendricks Channels Marilyn Monroe – the 39-year old Mad Men star is famous for her very curvy figure and also her fiery red hair. However the red locks were hidden under a blonde wig as she headed out yesterday evening.

Christina was seen wearing the platinum blonde wig as she partied at the David Arquette’s West Hollywood club Bootsy Bellows on Saturday with some friends.

Although she is well-known for her red hair Christina has recently admitted that her natural hair colour is actually nearer to the blonde you can see here. She apparently started dying her hair at the tender age of 10-years old after she was captivated by Anne of Green Gables. Her mother said that she should could dye her hair to match her heroine and the rest is history.

Some of Christina’s other secrets include a near addiction to buying lipsticks, especially in red and coral colours and the fact that her favourite scent is Cannabis Rose from Fresh. The perfume includes notes of Bulgarian rose as well as bergamot, dark chocolate and white musk. The scent links in to Christina’s Mad Men character Joan who started wearing a lot or dresses with rose designs on them and the link was made between her character’s clothing and her choice of perfume.

New Unseen Photos Of Marilyn Monroe In American Exhibition – What’s Hot and What’s Trending 26 May 2014

Sexy Marilyn Monroe photo showing cleavage - taken at Niagara 1952New Unseen Photos Of Marilyn Monroe In American Exhibition – a new US exhibition is opening next month which features some unreleased photos of Marilyn Monroe.

For a woman who died 51 years ago the actress still creates a huge amount of interest. Much like Princess Diana part of the mystique is a beautiful woman who because of her untimely death stays forever young in the public’s mind.

The Limited Runs exhibition is due to open in LA on 6 June at the Boulevard gallery and will move on to San Francisco’s Sarah Stocking Gallery a couple of weeks later before finally showing at the Whitespace gallery in New York from 22 July.

Many of the photos being exhibited have not been seen for over 60 years and there are also some previously unreleased images. Many of the pictures show Marilyn in a more relaxed pose than the usual staged photos. The image you can see here is taken by Allan ‘Whitey’ Snyder in 1952  whilst Marilyn was on location filming her first starring role in the movie Niagara.

Work by other photographers such as Milton Greene, Thomas ‘Doc’ Kaminski and Lani Carlson is also featured in the new exhibition and show her on set whilst filming other movies such as River Of No Return and Bus Stop. Read the rest of this entry »

Jessica Chastain To Play Marilyn Monroe – What’s Hot and What’s Trending 24 April 2014

Jessica Chastain in see-through dressJessica Chastain To Play Marilyn Monroe – according to The Wrap Jessica Chastain is to play iconic Hollywood sex symbol Marilyn Monroe in a new movie.

Chastain has certainly proved she can act after her award-winning performance in Zero Dark Thirty. Add to this the fact that she is happy to go nude on-screen as seen in her performance as Maggie Beauford in 2012 movie Lawless and she would seem to have all the requirements for the role. Except of course that as a redhead she will be taking on the part of the woman who is probably the most famous blonde of all-time.

It would not be Jessica’s first time taking on the role of a blonde woman as she has previously played blonde character Celia Foote in The Help, a role which won her an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actress.

Jessica is said to be close to signing up for the role as Marilyn in the new movie Blonde which is based on the book of the same name by Joyce Carol Oates. There has been talk of an adaptation for some years now and originally Naomi Watts was being lined up to play the part of Marilyn but that was back in 2010.

The original book ran to almost 1k pages and was very well received by both critics and the general public. It goes into great depth about the problems Marilyn encountered and covers many of her relationships including her difficult early years with her mother. The Sunday Times said of Blonde “nobody has ever caught Marilyn more brilliantly in words than Oates”.

The new movie is to be produced by Brad Pitt’s production company Plan B and he is believed to have been instrumental in convincing Jessica to take on the role of Monroe.

Andrew Dominick is likely to direct Blonde and he has said of the new project that it is a “really sprawling, emotional nightmare fairy-tale type movie … about an abandoned orphan who gets lost in the woods”.

It is not the first time that Blonde has been taken to the screen as back in 2001 there was a 2001 tv movie adaptation of the Oates novel with Aussie actress Poppy Montgomery (Without A Trace and Unforgettable) taking on the role of Marilyn. This tv movie also starred Ann-Margret as Delia Monroe, Marilyn’s maternal grandmother. If it had been possible to go back a few years in time we think that Ann-Margret would have made a superb Marilyn. Whoever remembers her rolling around in molten chocolate in The Who’s 1975 rock musical Tommy will now that not only had she got the acting chops for the part she also had the body.

Filming on Blonde is expected to begin in August this year and is likely to hit cinemas some time next year.

Dillinger was friends with many of the great and the good during the heyday of Hollywood and those friendships gave him unrivalled access to photos of the stars at play during the many private parties he was invited to.

Some of the photos that have just been released show Marilyn Monroe with her fellow movie stars from the 1960 George Cukor directed film Let’s Make Love. THey are shown relaxing off-set at a private party being held  at the Beverly Hilton.

At the time Marilyn was married to the writer Arthur Miller and Montand was married to French actress Simone Signoret. Read the rest of this entry »
