Favourite Photos: Marilyn Monroe

Favourite Photo

I thought I’d baptise my new ‘favourite photos’ posts with my favourite image of Marilyn Monroe. I’ve chosen this image as a first because her story has always fascinated me and I love the vivid colours used.

Marilyn Monroe with Black Bird

This image of Marilyn with a curious Blackbird has stood out in my mind for a long time. It’s one of the few photos of her where she hasn’t been “sexed up” to portray the usual ‘Marilyn’ character. The image is simply beautiful and I especially love that she’s wearing strong red lipstick. Image credit: This is Marilyn

Just for good measure I’ve added another wonderful photo of Marilyn with Sammy Davis Jr. She looks stunning and he’s just class as always. Image credit: Rockstar Gallery

    Some of MM’s most beautiful shots are those more candid. Always sexy of course but in my mind I remember those not designed to “make” her sexy – she just was. Ahhhh………Sammy. What an entertainer. They don’t make them like that anymore.
