‘I think I am a mixture of simplicity and complexes. But I’m beginning to understand myself now. I can face myself more, you might say. I’ve spent most of my life running away from myself.’ - Marilyn Monroe
What would be your favorite picture of marilyn ? Like which one would be significative and represent who she was?
what an excellent question :) I think I need three pictures tho to really show you how i see her :)
The first picture is the one how the world saw her / liked to see her / and it’s obviously a part of hers she liked showing. It would be the dolled-up Marilyn ( it also happens to be one of my favorite pictures of hers)
the second two pictures show a more private Marilyn and though it was taken during a photoshoot it shows her genuine , intelligent and rather private character perfectly in my opinion. She loved to laugh, talk to her friends on he phone and read ( many people don’t know that she owned lots and lots of books)
