UNEARTHED MARILYN



 






“What do you wear to bed? A pajama top? The bottoms of the pajamas?
A nightgown?” So I said, ‘CHANEL N°5,’ because it’s the truth… And yet, I don’t want to say ‘nude.’ But it’s the truth!”

– Marilyn Monroe –




A recent discovery unearthed from Chanel’s archives has produced a sound clip never heard before of Marie Claire editor-in-chief Georges Belmont interviewing Marilyn Monroe in 1960 for her film “Let’s Make Love”
where the Hollywood siren famously revealed in her iconic breathless voice that all she wears to bed is:

CHANEL No. 5!

 



Chanel, under the aegis of Kaiser Karl, has acquired the recording which will be part of the brand’s advert campaign this Christmas.

Fifty-odd years after Ed Feingersh took the black-and-white shots, the mystique and legacy of Marilyn still lives on thanks to this magical, posthumous clip.

A-Gent of Style particularly liked the clever montage with its great build-up and suspense. Groovy tune too.

Bon week-end!











HEAT WAVE






A-Gent of Style has always had an unswerving passion for sartorialism
and has never shied away from experimenting with clothes – as some embarrassing photographs would attest.

This shoot by photographer Tomo Brejc which appeared in the June issue of the Eurostar’s Metropolitan magazine this year overwhelmed me then and still does every time I see these wondrous fierce prints and bold colours inspired by African textiles. There isn’t one item I would kick out of my summer closet especially;
and they are all available from Mr Porter. Of course. Sigh.





As the cooler weather arrives, just looking at this spread fills me with joy, optimism and warmth! I hope you feel the same way too.

Happy Friday!

WHAT A ROCKING HORSE!





“The horses are ravishing! Giving should be gorgeous; you should look forward to it”

– Joanna Lumley –




Twelve celebrities, mostly British, of the film, fashion and art worlds have been enlisted by Stars Rocking to design their own rocking horses which will be auctioned to raise awareness and funds for CHIVA Africa, a charity working in South Africa to combat the spread of the AIDS and HIV epidemic in infants, children and teenagers.



Hand-crafted by famous rocking horse makers Stevenson Brothers, each horse has been customised with glorious designs and themes to make them unique:
Judi Dench transformed hers into an ethereal unicorn named SMOW (after her grandson Simon Michael Oak Williams), Joanna Lumley’s was inspired by the fabulous outfits worn by her Ab Fab character Patsy, while Amanda Wakeley’s became a safari Zebra. Other celebrities who have designed a rocking horse include Maureen Lipman, Kelly Hoppen, Stephen Webster, Nicky Clarke,
Julien Macdonald, Melissa Odabash and Nick Walker.

 


The ravishing rocking horses, all signed by their artists, will be exhibited
at Sotheby’s Kiddell Gallery from 11-14 November 2013, after which they will be auctioned at an invitation-only event on November 14th with all proceeds going directly towards CHIVA Africa.

For more information please contact starsrocking@chiva-africa.org
or call 0208 2099100.

So, don’t say neigh, say yeah!
