Last weekend I visited the Marilyn Monroe exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery, showcasing photographs and magazine covers of the blonde bombshell from 1947 to 1962, which aims to celebrate the transformation of the world's most iconic pin up superstar. I had been wanting to visit this for some time, being a fan of all things Marilyn I was excited to see some rarer and less well known images of her. It was a very small exhibition space, I was expecting there to be a little more to see, however, it is after all about quality and not quantity, which certainly was the case here. I would definitely urge any Marilyn fans to take a visit if they are in London, as it was a lovely intimate little exhibition displaying some different photographs than we're all used to seeing of the star, as well as being free entry which is always a bonus.
