Fridays Famous Photo

How to pose to be remembered through out history? Over the next few weeks I will be posting images of the most photographed and worshipped model of all time. This woman knew how to pose, and models today from all different genres hail her as their idol. Why do we see universal beauty in Marilyn Monroe?
Maybe the answer is not what people want to hear. This lady that possessed such great beauty never aged. By passing away at 36 she remained eternally beautiful. There is also a vulnerability that seeps through images of her.
The only ironic thing is that when models recreate her look today- they are so retouched that no vulnerability ever seeps through. This makes the images lack a certain Junoesque - This makes Monroe beauty unique and will so forever more.
