Unseen Marilyn Monroe Images on Display in New York, Highly Addictive Manolos, Anti-Violence Rings by Philip Crangi, And More…

-------

This week at Milk Studios in New York, 62 photos (several of them previously unseen) of Marilyn Monroe will be on display for a two-day photo exhibition called Picturing Marilyn. The Dior dress she is wearing in her famous shoot with Bert Stern has been re-created and will be on display at the exhibit preview on November 9. [WWD]

Here’s an interesting one: Drug dealers in Spain smuggled cocaine into the country using fake Manolo Blahniks. They molded the cocaine, in the form of paste, into a shoe (with fake Manolo tags). Each pair was reportedly worth about $69,000. [Huff Po]

Fashion photographer Andreas Laszlo Konrath got his start photographing punks and skaters. These days, he’s more likely to be found backstage at Lanvin and Dior shows than skate parks. Find a selection of his work with his commentary on NewYorker.com, along with his photos of actress Nina Arianda for today’s profile story on her. [The New Yorker]

Jewelry designer Philip Crangi has joined forces with Ethos Water creator Peter Thum and John Zapolski to found Fonderie 47, a do-good line of metal jewelry. The company is “aimed at reducing Africa’s estimated 20 million assault weapons by turning the metal into jewelry.” One ring results in the destruction of more than 75 guns. [T]

Quiet On The Set, Please, Someone’s Butt Is Getting Bit

-------

Club Monaco has leapt into spring with help from an old hand, 80-year-old photographer Bert Stern. The lensman—best known for his photographs of Marilyn Monroe—shot the brand’s latest campaign, and blowups of the resulting black-and-white images loomed over the party Club Monaco threw last night at its Fifth Avenue boutique.

Known as a creator of classy, feminine photographs but not necessarily as a people person, Stern spent most of the evening downstairs in the quieter men’s department; upstairs, the swirl included jewelry designer Eddie Borgo and style documentarians Scott Schuman and Garance Doré. Lorenzo Martone found himself toting around Jessica White’s bag while she did some shopping. “Light-colored things,” White (pictured, right) explained. “I like very dark colors, but I’m going to lighten up my hair for the springtime—it’s going to be a reddish-brown. So it’s about soft, neutral colors.”

While her friend and fellow model Irina Shayk (pictured, left) wandered off with the personal shopper they were sharing, White recounted getting in trouble not so long ago for racy pictures leaked from the set of the latest Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. “We did a sandwich position where the photographer and the makeup artist were biting my buttocks. People took it really seriously. I had to make a public statement. So now I won’t allow people to take photographs on set anymore. They can’t photograph me getting my butt bit,” she explained. Presumably, that’s never been an issue for Stern.
