EXCLUSIVE: Marilyn Monroe Digitally Reimagined on 'CR Fashion Book's Latest Cover

The late star wears some of today’s hottest designers on the visuals, which will also be minted as NFTs.

Shortly after the release of Netflix’s Blonde teaser and Kim Kardashian‘s controversial Met Gala dress, CR Fashion Book China has launched its fourth issue featuring the late star digitally reimagined and styled in some of today’s hottest designer brands.

“Every editor and stylist dreams of working with the greats, but none compare to Marilyn. Her iconography stands the test of time — just look at the news over the last few months. The worlds of fashion, art, and cinema continue to be inspired by her cultural impact every day,” Carine Roitfeld, who digitally styled the editorial, told Hypebae. “I will be forever grateful to her estate for allowing us the opportunity to style her, even digitally, and to our partner fashion houses for ‘lending’ us their designs.”

The CGI imagery was created in partnership with Web3 startup Amethyst and Authentic Brands Group, which owns Monroe’s estate. A total of eight looks were created for the reimagined celebrity, who is seen wearing runway looks from Miu Miu, Fendi, Balenciaga, Thom Browne, Balmain and David Koma, in addition to garments from digital fashion houses Auroboros and Tribute Brand.

Jim Gibb, the creative director for the Marilyn Monroe Estate, further added in a press release: “CR was the obvious choice to style and debut the modern Marilyn. Carine Roitfeld is a premiere purveyor of taste, and we knew she and her team would be able to conceive Marilyn in a contemporary period without losing her signature ‘it’ factor.”

Peep the images exclusively on Hypebae above. CR China‘s Issue 4 starring Marilyn Monroe is now available on newsstands. The eight cover images will additionally drop as NFTs via Amethyst.
