Exclusive Marilyn Monroe Photography Exhibition

Come view exclusive photographs from Bert Stern's The Last Sitting® series featuring Marilyn Monroe on display in the hotel lobby from September 1 - October 31.

On a late June afternoon in 1962, Marilyn Monroe arrived at Hotel Bel-Air — alone, five hours late, ready to discard her inhibitions for the camera of legendary photographer Bert Stern. The 12-hour photoshoot that ensued, and the following two sessions, yielded nothing short of magic: the 2,571 portraits revealed a Marilyn completely unreserved yet utterly glamorous in wispy scarves, pink silk, birdcage veils, and an iconic black velour gown by Christian Dior. Collectively called ‘The Last Sitting®’, the intimate portraits would be the public’s final glimpse into the life of the Hollywood icon before her untimely death six weeks later.
We invite you to discover Stern’s series in this rare exhibition in the hotel lobby September 1 - October 31.
