Marilyn the Ballerina

Monroe was very sensitive and in many ways intensely child like.

Many feel this evolved from her turbulent childhood and the dreams she had for a better more fairy tale life to replace the childhood of longing for things she could not have.  She took every advantage to emulate that in her adult life as one might imagine her doing so while dressing up as ballerina.

Simply Marilyn Monroe

There really was nothing simple about Marilyn Monroe.

She was a sensitive fragile sort that would cry hysterically at the sight of a struggling kitten or puppy, a dying bird or anything of the like would send her to a sobbing mess.  There is also the sexy Marilyn smoking and seeming as if she were the most worldly woman on the planet.  Yet biting her nail may well be the reveal to the anxiousness always present within her.

Seven Year Itch

The seven year itch was one of, if not, the biggest phenomenons of her times.

Marilyn in all her beloved innocents revealed a captivating wonder in her photo of legendary per portions in this highly sought after image. With Marilyn you never knew if it were purely an innocent accident or a calculated publicity stunt with both existing in harmony.

Marilyn and Makeup

Imagine having all the pretty play things at your disposal you once only dreamed of.

Marilyn enjoyed the endless hours of pampering and playing with the wonders of hair, dress and makeup. She no doubt was a kid in a candy store enjoying all her fame allowed her.

Monroe and Dean

One can only imagine the thoughts racing through Marilyn's mind each time she met another great man.

Marilyn a one time foster child, the little girl with so much pain in her background had finally made it, reached the dreams of her life time with each new real life fantasy.  She met so many amazing powerful and sexy men, what's a girl like her to do?

Marilyn's Love of the City

She was both excited by and in love with the hustle and bustle of the big city.

Hollywood came as second nature to Marilyn. If ever a girl was born to be a star it was Marilyn Monroe.  It is so sad that it all ended so soon for Marilyn Monroe.  Imagine what she would have done if she were still alive today? Can you imagine Marilyn in her 80's?

Victoria, I agree and yes she and James Dean seem like a natural fit, maybe they were to much alike...

2uesday, Yes she did, Marilyn has inspired so many people, both artistic and not.

Brenda, Cool, sorry I missed that. I love Marilyn Monroe.

2uesday, that's a very good point, I never thought about it before but pictures of Marilyn do seemingly fit into any time, decade or trend.

I watched a documentary on her last week. It pretty much said everything you said here.
