This is my favorite picture of Marilyn Monroe. She looks so sophisticated and super sexy.
Her life fascinated me. She had a hard childhood and a hard life to boot and still managed to make it big in Hollywood. Unfortunately, her life was too short, she numbed herself with drugs and alcohol and it got the best of her. I can't wait for the book "Fragments" by Farrar, Straus, and Giroux to come out this October. It tells an intimate side of her life and has some of her poetry in it that is supposed to be quite beautiful.
