1950s screen goddess Marilyn Monroe was quite familiar with the high-end apparel items marketed by fashion magnate Joseph Magnin. Among the glamorous designer wear she modeled were a Joseph Magnin suit she wore in her high profile marriage to Joe DiMaggio ... and there’s this gorgeous pair of high heel shoes! Obtained from the estate of former motion picture industry hand Sidney Rosenstein, these gold-colored high heel footwear items bear “JOSEPH MAGNIN – LAS VEGAS” stampings on the insides and gold-colored beads accenting the outer portion of each. An accompanying LOA attests to the shoes having belonged to Monroe. Though it is unclear as to whether she wore them on the set or in her personal escapades, it is documented that they were acquired directly from Monroe’s business manager, Inez Melson, shortly after her untimely death. Original spring activated shoe shapers accompany.
