Christian Louboutin Reads ‘Blonde’

“Meanwhile, he’s recently finished a new collection inspired by Joyce Carol Oates’ Blonde, a 1200 page biography on Marilyn Monroe.*  ‘It’s such a fascinating book.  One of the most moving books I’ve ever read, actually.  I began to really look at Marilyn, and I realized she is not a style icon, but an icon herself.  I love that Marilyn attitude.'”

*It should be noted that Blonde is fiction, not biography, and that the page count in my hardback original was 752 (though some trade paperbacks run to 960 pp.)
