A few weeks ago we were lucky enough to attend the launch party for Tashen’s new book Norman Mailer, Bert Stern: Marilyn Monroe. The party was held in Beverly Hills at the Hotel Bel Air and was swarming with swanky celebs, including our very own Susan Seid, president of The Vera Company (Pictured above with photographer Bert Stern).
This masterpiece of a book is $1000 and includes pictures from Marilyn’s iconic last photo shoot with photographer Bert Stern, with commentary from the author of her biography, Norman Mailer. The book comes in a fabric covered box and the image featured on the cover is of Monroe draped in an orange and yellow striped Vera scarf! This amazing book is also lined with the design of the scarf. Marilyn Monroe by Taschen books would make an amazing gift for any Vera fan (or Marilyn fan!).
