Marilyn Monroe, Vogue Shoot in Black Dress (Straight), From The Last Sitting, 1962

Photograph
By Bert Stern
About the image

Marilyn Monroe touches her hands together while staring into the camera in a modest black dress. Stern sought to photograph Marilyn as she never had before - as a Vogue fashion model. A bit of a divergence from her usual, Marilyn readily accepted the challenge, and the pair worked tirelessly until two or three in the morning. By the end of the shoot, the room was covered in rolls of film, trays of food, and bottles of champagne.

Exhibition History:
Several photographs from Stern's archive were featured in our exhibition: Marilyn Monroe & James Dean “Forever Young”, February 2009.
