Sunday Sweetness with a Buxom Blonde Legend
Marilyn Monroe in Memories, Quotes and Cover Shoots
This quote is among my personal top five belonging to the legendary icon, Marilyn Monroe. 50 years have passed since the tragic death of this timeless beauty, each year exposing new discoveries on the history and struggles endured by the tortured soul of this American icon.
American fashion, beauty and feminine evolution based publications have been, and will continue to offer significant memorable mentions and vintage collections of Marilyn Monroe, captured in images that translate the life, love and legend that was left behind. Features of Marilyn Monroe have been sprouting up across the web, television and in plans for printing!
The June 2012 issue of Vanity Fair magazine will feature a flawless capture of Marilyn Monroe. This issue will be the fourth time since her passing that Vanity Fair pays publication homage to Marilyn with a commemorative cover in her honor.

Over the past four years, Marilyn Monroe–who is dead, you must understand–has been on the cover of Vanity Fair magazine three times! The latest cover shows a radiantly fresh-faced Marilyn, still a model, photographed by Andre de Dienes. It’s amazing, the hold that this woman–gone almost 50 years–still has on the world.
The VF story inside deals with MM’s famous nude pool scene, from her last, uncompleted movie, “Something’s Got To Give,” photographed by Lawrence Schiller.

“just before Marilyn Monroe’s shocking death, in 1962, photographer Lawrence Schiller hit the jackpot, capturing the world’s most famous blonde at her most seductive.”
To put it bluntly, I seem to have a whole superstructure with no foundation. But I’m working on the foundation.- Marilyn Monroe
