On May 19, 1962, in front of a crowd of 15,000 guests at Madison Square Garden, Marilyn Monroe slipped off her ermine fur coat and performed what might be the sultriest rendition of the “Happy Birthday” song the world had ever seen. On the receiving end of the ditty was none other than President John F. Kennedy, who was celebrating his 45th birthday.

It’s hard to say what wowed the crowd more that night—Monroe’s provocative performance or the barely-there dress she delivered it in.

The night would mark one of the star’s last

Still mourning the loss of the Thin White Duke? Maybe a piece of art from the musical icon’s private collection will help ease the sting. Famous for his shape-shifting personas as Ziggy Stardust, Aladdin Sane, and yes, the Thin White Duke, the late David Bowie was perhaps less known as an avid art collector—and, true to his nature, the more idiosyncratic the work, the better.

A highlight of the auction, which will take place November 10–11 in London, is Bowie’s extensive collection of works by the Milan-based Memphis Group. An avant-garde design collaborative formed in the 1980s and led by Ettore Sottsass, Michele De Lucchi, and Andrea Branzi, among others, the group spearheaded the now widely recognized postmodern design movement.
