Paparazzi were out in force to snap celebrities arriving at The Langham hotel, in Marylebone, for Zebra One Gallery’s Cocktails With Monroe exhibition, including rare original photographs of Hollywood icon Marilyn Monroe.

Last month, the gallery marked Kate Moss’s 40th birthday with a special exhibition of photos of the supermodel in the River Room at the world-famous Savoy hotel.

In attendance at last night’s show was 1960s sex symbol Shirley Eaton, 77, who starred as Bond girl Jill Materson in the 1964 James Bond film Goldfinger, famously appearing in full gold body paint.

The Mill Hill resident was proudly sporting a diamond necklace for the occasion reportedly worth £1million.

Zebra One Gallery owner Gabrielle du Plooy, 38, was also joined on the night by TV presenter Anneka Rice, 55, Camden-born actress and model Camilla Rutherford, 37, and American actress Hayley Hasselhoff, 21, daughter of Baywatch star David Hasselhoff.

It follows the gallery’s Marilyn Exposed exhibition which ran at its studio, in Perrin’s Court, Hampstead, from November last year.
