Bert Stern

Prabal Gurung SS14

Roses which featured on photographs taken from Bert Stern’s « Last Sitting » series with Marilyn Monroe (commissioned by « Vogue » in 1962), inspired the floral motifs of the Prabal Gurung Spring/Summer 2014 Show.

Other Bert Stern-inspired collection and campaign : Versace Spring/Summer 2014 Menswear (one pattern revisited, in an Andy Warhol-style, a Marilyn Monroe’s portrait by Bert Stern, taken from the « Last Sitting » visuals), Yves Saint Laurent (the ad campaign of the « Rouge Volupté » lipstick, launched in 2008, starring Kate Moss, was based on Bert Stern’s « Last Sitting » images, that Marilyn Monroe had crossed out).
