BFI Marilyn Monroe season

marilyn-monroe-southbank-season-artwork-june-2015Marilyn Monroe season has been declared by by the BFI Southbank. How much love do we have for them now?

In June, the star’s birthday month, they are screening 15 films starring one of Hollywood’s most iconic actresses, including some rarely-screened ones (like We’re Not Married and Clash By Night), in partnership with Stylist Magazine.

Apart from Hollywood starlet, sex-symbol and tragic heroin, Monroe is also a fashion icon, having donned one of dresses that made fashion history to grace her famous curves – who can forget the white halterneck with flowing skirt (by costume designer William Travilla) over a New York City subway grate, from the 1955 film Seven Year Itch?

Cinematic and fashion history birds with one stone, I say.
