Objects of Desire: Marilyn Goes From Scandal to Chanel

When asked by reporters what she wore to bed, Marilyn famously quipped, “just a few drops of Chanel No. 5.” The iconic French perfume is featured in ‘Object of Desire,’ an article for the October issue of UK nostalgia mag Yours Retro (#55, with Sean Connery on the cover.)

Elsewhere there’s an ad for a special issue, 50 Scandals That Rocked Old Hollywood, in which the furore over Marilyn’s nude calendar, and rumours about the Kennedys are featured – available next Thursday, November 3rd. She was previously voted the No. 1 Hollywood star in a staff poll for the 2019 special issue, 100 Greatest Movie Icons.
