Marilyn Monroe – Oriental Sitting (DG-01)

The Essential Marilyn Collection
Milton H. Greene
  • Look magazine gave Milton an assignment to shoot oriental gowns. Marilyn posed as the model. Close family friend, artist Joe Eula was the stylist. They created the right setting with Asian-style furnishings: a screen, a table and large pillows with tassels. Milton and Joe’s wicked sense of humor led them to include Pekingese dogs as an Asian accessory. One of the images from this sitting appeared in Look’s June 14, 1955 edition. Pin_it_button
