Event has a picture gallery from the evening, which saw special guest Kristina Rihanoff, of Strictly Come Dancing fame, dressed in Marilyn’s infamous gold dress.

The centrepiece of the event was an exhibition of eight of Marilyn’s most iconic dresses, including the pink dress in which she sang ‘Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend’ and the gold lamé dress designed for 1953 film Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.

The venue was adorned with Marilyn themed images, including rare photographs and an exhibit of costume design sketches by William Travilla.

Dressing Marilyn, by Andrew Hansford, contains previously unseen dress patterns, sketches, rare costume test shots and photographs of Marilyn wearing the dresses.
