Hi! This is a blog dedicated to the beautiful Marilyn Monroe. An amazing actress whose photographs and films have inspired generations. I want to keep her legacy alive with this blog and to make others love her as much as I do. All the pictures I post are either edited by me or scanned by me. Enjoy! xx

“She was an absolute genius as a comedic actress, with an extraordinary sense for comedic dialogue. It was a God-given gift. Believe me, in the last fifteen years there were ten projects that came to me, and I’d start working on them and I’d think, ‘It’s not going to work, it needs Marilyn Monroe.’ Nobody else is in that orbit; everyone else is earthbound by comparison.” - Billy Wilder
