Marilyn arriving, to help break ground for The Time-Life Building near The Rockefeller Center on July 2nd 1957. Notice the watch in the pictures, it was a clear joke meant at Marilyn arriving two and a half hours late.
MM Expert Marijane Gray with Marilyn’s actual iconic white bathing suit from her 1957 photo shoot with Sam Shaw. Marijane is a modern us size six (uk size ten) and it is too small for her. Of course all sizes and shapes are beautiful, but this is a reminder that you can be petite and have curves, which is the proportion of your body shape, not your weight.
Marilyn Monroe ABC >> F >> Frank Powolny
Many of the most iconic and famous photos of Marilyn Monroe were taken by Frank Powolny in 1953. Some of these were promotional photos for films including How to Marry a Millionaire (1953) and Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953). These photos portray the glamorous side to Marilyn which was not the full part of her. Many of her fans often forgot that these photos weren't actually who Marilyn was. Marilyn felt like she lived a double life, Marilyn Monroe and some other girl. Photographer Lawrence Schiller once said "She comes out of the dressing room Norma Jeane. When she stepped infront of the camera, she was Marilyn."
