L.A. Story Spotlight: Donelle Dadigan

Discover Los Angeles

Visitors should set aside at least an hour to explore the museum, which includes Max Factor’s world-famous make-up rooms, where Marilyn Monroe became a blonde and Lucille Ball became everyone’s favorite redhead. Displays include everything from Max Factor’s unique “Beauty Calibration Machine” to Monroe’s million-dollar dress and Hannibal Lecter’s cell from The Silence of the Lambs.

“My mother was an educator, my father was an educator, and I was an educator,” says Dadigan. “So my mother and I, we realized - harkening back to our times of being school teachers - that the best way for us to get our children and our students to be interested in the subject that we were teaching was that we had to entertain them. If we entertain them, they couldn’t help but open their minds to what they were being taught.”

She continues, “So we felt if we take that component and put it in a museum, showcasing what we think is the number one export of Los Angeles - Hollywood - we couldn’t help but have an opportunity for visitors from all the around the world to come and see this.”
