Doonan on Monroe
Werth here. Barney's bon vivant, Simon Doonan, in his new book, Gay Men Don't Get Fat, writes about his stint designing the installation for the famous Christie's Marilyn Monroe auction. Slate published an excerpt and while I'm not sure Doonan's observations about Marilyn's size are accurate (there has been constant back and forth about how big she really was), his unique perspective is worth a read.
