The other day, a friend and I were discussing the phenomenon of Ms. Norma Jean. She was saying how she didn't really buy in to Marilyn's sex goddess status, and that she didn't find her all that gorgeous. I disagree. I find her to be the epitome of femininity and grace, and the archetype of the tragic heroine; as a Gemini, she obviously straddled many different roles with ease - pin up, recluse, bombastic blonde, misunderstood star, bodacious, brilliant, and ultimately alone. Here are some of the photos I've scanned of her. Hope you enjoy them. As always, please credit if you re-post. All photos scanned from Vanity Fair, Celebrity Skin, and the book "Too Young To Die".
