Fashion News Roundup: Giorgio Armani Wishes He Were an Architect, Marilyn Monroe is Still in Fashion, and Justin Bieber Wearing Pantaloons

Marilyn Monroe Exhibit Draws Classy Fash Crowd: No angel-wing-and-thong ensembles here. A collection of rare photos of the ill-fated starlet titled Picturing Marilyn opened last night at Milk Gallery to a stylish group including Coco Rocha, Jessica Stam, and Georgina Chapman. Dree Hemingway had the honor of wearing a stunning Dior-created replica of the black dress worn my Ms. Monroe in her "Last Sitting" photographs. {WWD} Armani Opens New Hotel, Wishes He Were an Architect: Giorgio Armani, who has just opened his newest luxury hotel in Milan and has plans for several others in Paris, New York, and London, says that he wishes he could "have a fresh start as an architect." If only the 77-year-old had the eternal youth of fellow Italian Roberto Cavalli, he'd still have at least 43 years to make that dream a reality. {Telegraph} Pop Stars Go Waaay Old School in Classic Paintings: Ever wondered what Beyonce would look like in Queen Elizabeth's clothes? Or daydreamed about Justin Bieber in blue velvet 18th Century pantaloons? No? Neither had we. But now that you're curious, here they are, in some pretty convincing re-imagined classic paintings. {MTV Style}
