What a beautiful woman.  Wow.  For years I've said that there are so many better looking women out there, but recently I have realized why she is an icon. 

If nothing else, check out the photo at 1:36.

No doubt about it, the one and only. That's why she is a legend.  

To think some buddies actually made similar claims about Carmen Electra being somewhat in MM's class.

Because you are clueless.

You have NO IDEA what was happening in that era.

You cannot relate, so you think it is unimportant.

History and Icons are NEVER trivial matters.

Do you NOT understand that is the very fabric of your own  existence today?

She was beautiful. Wish there was more of that kind of beauty about today.

Are you really arguing that she isn't an icon? ^  

You can't be serious.

Natural beauty: A March, 1946 image taken by photographer Joseph Jasgur shows a young and bright Norma Jean Dougherty, who we all came to know as Marilyn Monroe

Joseph Jasgur was hired by the Blue Book modelling agency to shoot the then-unknown Norma Jeane

Rare finds: The photos include a black-and-white image of the future Ms Monroe in a plaid button-down shirt, hands planted playfully on her hips

It all started with a red cardigan. The ‘sweater girl’ look, launched by Lana Turner in the 1937 film They Won’t Forget, was coming into vogue across America. But it hadn’t reached Emerson Junior High School, Los Angeles – until Norma Jeane Mortenson, or Marilyn Monroe as she was later to be known, found her own distinctive way.

Teenage girls in that era often wore a front-buttoned cardigan over a white blouse with a prim collar. Norma Jeane eliminated  the blouse as well as the bra and camisole worn under it. She then took a red cardigan, turned it around, and buttoned it up the back. The sweater clung to her breasts; she called it her ‘magic sweater’.


Typing cool: Marilyn strikes a pose in 1946. It was her 'magic red sweater' that helped catapult her into the limelight



Budding beauty: Marilyn in the 1940s
