By the ubiquity of her photos, a visitor to our planet would probably conclude that Marilyn Monroe was a thriving beauty, not an icon whose tragic demise occurred a full half century ago. In those five decades, we have seen the Hollywood starlet represented as a sex symbol, revived as a feminist lesson, and exposed as a troubled, haunted woman. Seldom though have we seen her presented as the fashion icon that she was—and remains. This pictorial does just that, displaying this modern day It Girl as she wore style-setting European dresses, gowns, swimsuits, lingerie, shoes, and accessories. Marilyn in Fashion features hundreds of rare, previously unpublished, and seldom seen photographs of the model/actress. A goddess if there ever was one.
