The exhibit is framed by beautiful large-format photographs of Monroe captured by photographer Milton H. Greene, and unique historic video material from the Paley Archive chronicling the icon's contributions to television.

The collection features costumes, her yellow-and-black sequined number for Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, her ball gown from The Prince and the Showgirl, and a look from How to Marry a Millionaire. as well as her address book and original scripts.
