Happy Birthday Marilyn

Happy Birthday to the wonder woman Norma Jean and her iconic creation Marilyn Monroe.
It's very easy to get obsessed with this lady and I have recently read books upon books on her, trying to find one that is non salacious. The best books with the best images are Marilyn - Metamorphosis by David Wills and Marilyn in Fashion by Christopher Nickens as they simply celebrate instead of titillate.
Marilyn's dresses all seem iconic, simple, bold and tighter than clingfilm she must have been a real pleasure to dress and work with as a costumer.
