She was curvy and far from being waif thin like the models we often see today. She was the standard for her time. Women wanted to be her, often emulating her fashion style of the 50's. Little does anyone know, she was solely responsible for creating her own iconic look...platinum blond hair, full red pouty lips and knock em' dead dressed to accentuate her hourglass shape! She knew what she was doing, and boy did it work for her!
It was in the news just today, that thirty years ago, Anton Fury of New Jersey randomly bought an envelope full of negatives at a garage sale and found out after having them developed, that there were thirty three pictures of the late actress/vintage sex symbol, Marilyn Monroe...An unexpected treasure! He stated after buying them, he tucked them away for a few decades and is now interested in having them appraised.
A 'rare find' such is this is, is a perfect example of why I love doing what I do!
"Happy Birthday Norma Jean!"
