We’ve contemplated Was Marilyn Monroe the Greatest Celebrity of All Time? and had, until recently, been busy speculating whether the re-imagining of Marilyn will lead to an Oscar statuette for Michelle Williams over Meryl Streep and Viola Davis.

For some images from the exhibition of the current titleholder of “Greatest Celebrity of All Time,” check out the gallery below:
