The Power of Marilyn’s Ferragamos

In 2012, the Ferragamo Museum in Florence, Italy dedicated an exhibition to Marilyn, including original clothing, photographs and memorabilia, plus her multiple pairs of Ferragamo shoes. The exhibit, which also compared Marilyn’s iconic imagery with classical art, is now featured on Google Arts and Culture. It’s a nice tribute to a memorable event, but unfortunately the article includes several quotes commonly misattributed to Marilyn (such as ‘I don’t know who invented high heels, but all women owe him a lot’ – which was actually said by Bette Midler.)
