    Rare Marilyn Monroe photos hit auction block

    A collection of never-before-seen photos of Marilyn Monroe — and their accompanying copyrights — are going up for auction.

    Celebrity auctioneer Darren Julien says more than 100 images of Monroe will be sold the highest bidders later this month.

    The photos come from the estate of Allan "Whitey" Snyder, Monroe's personal makeup artist for 15 years. One image shows Snyder applying makeup to a lingerie-wearing Monroe on the set of "Let's Make Love" in 1960.

    Letters, telegrams and a money clip from Monroe to Snyder are also among the lots set to be sold during Julien's Auctions' Hollywood Legends sale on March 31 and April 1. The auction also includes memorabilia from Frank Sinatra, James Dean, Charlie Chaplin and Sammy Davis, Jr.

    'Smash' Stars Megan Hilty And Katharine McPhee Talk Uma Thurman, Future Musical Numbers And More

    The "Some Like It Hot" number, which has been seen in some commercials, is a focal point of the episode. "The number just builds and builds and builds and builds until the end and everybody -- even the audience -- is exhausted," Hilty said with a laugh.

    Just because Ivy has the part doesn't mean her romance with director Derek (Jack Davenport) will come crashing to a halt.

    "It's not just a one-time thing to get a job; it's a real relationship, albeit a strange one, a very unconventional one," Hilty said. "But that's what makes it so interesting: They're two characters that find this thing that kind of works for them, but it's dangerous at the same time."

    Davenport said while Derek and Ivy are legitimately into each other, they do have their own underlying motivations.

    "We jokingly refer to each other as Mr. and Mrs. MacBeth," Davenport said. "It's been really good and really interesting because I think one of the things that is handled very well -- and very unflinchingly and unapologetically, I suppose -- is they're both very ambitious people and they're quite tactical. Whilst they're undeniably attracted to each other, they also have other agendas which they don't necessarily have to spend all night discussing, but they're not idiots."
    Over on Team Karen, the small town girl seems to be getting awfully cozy with Ivy's friends, especially after that killer Adele cover, and McPhee says that will continue.

    "I still remain friends with them. It's an interesting thing," McPhee said. "It's kind of like just how things happen when you're in a show with people: You become really close to them. You kind of never know if you'll even talk to each other when the show is over, but for the moment, you're really kind of close to each other."

    McPhee said Bobby (Wesley Taylor), Jessica (Savannah Wise) and Sue (Jenny Laroche) are caught between Ivy and Karen, balancing friendships amidst tension.

    "They're always trying to defend one or the other or play both sides because Ivy for a period of time is the star so you have to be good with the star and they all feel bad for me," she said. "They kind of become cheerleaders for me along the way. Nothing dramatic happens between all of them as of yet."

    Aside from the ongoing Ivy/Karen drama, a new force to be reckoned with is coming to town: Uma Thurman. The "Kill Bill" star will appear in five episodes -- starting in episode 10 -- as Rebecca Duvall.

    "[Thurman] plays a difficult Hollywood star who may or may not get involved in the 'Marilyn' musical," the executive producer of "Smash," Neil Meron, said on set. When pressed for details, Meron was tight-lipped, but said Thurman is "going to give a hell of a performance."

    "Smash" is already well into wrapping its 15-episode first season, but that didn't keep McPhee and Hilty from naming dream guest stars.

    Kim Kardashian steps back in time to rekindle the fifties glamour of screen siren Sophia Loren

    She's not afraid to show her cleavage and is famed for her bootylicious curves, but Kim Kardashian opted for fifties chic while filming a new advert.
    The reality star turned back the clocks to resemble Academy Award-winning beauty Sophia Loren, who won her Oscar for Two Women in 1962.
    Kim brought sophisticated glamour back to life with a pencil skirt, white shirt, cream handbag and orange belt that showed off her tiny waist.
    The 30-year-old also sported a pair of chic sunglasses, while tottering around in skyscraper heels that matched her bag.
    She adorned herself with a grey chiffon headscarf, that blew in a gust created from a fan, and kept bling to a minimum with a simple pair of gold earrings and a watch on her left wrist.
