Some like it hot, but we like it chic in Ferragamo!

On Tuesday night the Italian luxury brand celebrated the opening of Marilyn, a retrospective dedicated to Marilyn Monroe for the 50th anniversary of her death.

Items on display at the Ferragamo museum in Florence, Italy includes 50 outfits and 30 pairs of shoes from the actress' movies along with portraits, magazine covers, and film clips.

Salvatore's widow, Wanda Ferragamo, who was at Tuesday night's opening said of Miz Monroe:

"I never met her, but I know Marilyn used to buy our shoes at our Park Avenue store in New York. She was always wearing our pumps, especially with sequins in red or white."

The exhibit will run from June 20 to January 28, 2013, so if you're in Italy anytime soon be sure to stop by to glare at little piece of history!
