The exhibit is on display through December 30, 2012.

“The Hollywood Museum is where glamourous stars were created!” says Donelle Dadigan, Founder and President of The Hollywood Museum. Dr. Christmas presents color coordinated, jewel-tone trees designed to complement Max Factor’s world-famous makeup rooms, where Marilyn Monroe became a blonde, Elizabeth Taylor a brunette & Lucille Ball a redhead, among others. This is where the silver screen stars from Hollywood’s Golden Era got their signature look, and this year’s trees are designed to reflect the glamorous and treasured past of the historic Max Factor Building, as well as today’s iconic female entertainers.
“Max Factor created “Color Harmony” make-up due to the invention of 3-strip Technicolor film, and Factors’ color harmony formulas are still used today by Industry professionals,” Dadigan adds. For example, Max Factor believed celery green was the perfect complimentary color for his red-head clients including Lucille Ball, Maureen O’Hara, and Rita Hayworth.
”Our Christmas tree in the ‘Blondes Only’ room sparkles with icy blues because Max Factor thought it was the perfect color to highlight the blondes he styled in that room including Marilyn Monroe, Jean Harlow, Lana Turner and Barbara Stanwyck,” says Dadigan.
Also on display is an extensive collection of Christmas ornaments signed by a galaxy of stars, including Lauren Bacall, Angela Lansbury, Jacqueline Smith, Heidi Klum, Paris Hilton, Brittany Murphy, Phyllis Diller and many more.
