Marilyn: The Inspiration
This photo book was the inspiration for "Some Like It Hot," our nod to retro style. O's creative director, Adam Glassman, chose actress Viola Davis, who was nominated for an Oscar® for her role in Doubt to channel the timeless glamour of movie stars like Marilyn Monroe, Lena Horne, and Eartha Kit. "I wanted to show her in another light," he says. "When I saw her on the red carpet during awards season, she had that classic sexy quality," He gave her the book as a gift the night before the shoot.
