It cannot be denied that Marilyn Monroe is one of the most iconic artists in the entertainment industry.

Many have tried to emulate the curvacious actress and they are yet to capture the magical essence that was part of her persona.

The Getty Images Gallery is presenting Marilyn, a collection of imagery and memorabilia to commemorate 50 years since the untimely death of the entertainer.

Showcased in London for the first time, the exhibition will feature a number of original dresses and costumes worn by the Hollywood icon, alongside unique and iconic photographs.
