Marilyn Monroe Exhibition

If there are any Classic Hollywood fans out there in Australia, I cannot recommend the Bendigo Art Gallery's Marilyn Monroe exhibition enough! It is fantastic!

The exhibit is full of fascinating artefacts from Marilyn's life. These include costumes worn in her films,  several clothing items from her personal wardrobe, as well as her film scripts, makeup, photos, books and much more!
It is a beautiful look at both the public and private personas of this enigmatic star.

And don't forget to take a look at the 'Forever Marilyn' statue situated in Bendigo's Rosalind Park, it's 8 metres tall and has come all the way from America where it usually resides in California.

Its a must see!

Happy Birthday Audrey!

Today would have been the 87th birthday of Audrey Hepburn!

There are not really enough words to describe how much I love this woman! Her grace, compassion, dedication and humour are a continuing inspiration to this day. Audrey was a fashion icon, and a brilliant actress, but she was also a tireless humanitarian. Her work for UNICEF is perhaps her greatest achievement and is an inspiring legacy.
So a very 'Happy Birthday' to this wonderful lady!
