MM Expert Marijane Gray with Marilyn’s actual iconic white bathing suit from her 1957 photo shoot with Sam Shaw. Marijane is a modern us size six (uk size ten) and it is too small for her. Of course all sizes and shapes are beautiful, but this is a reminder that you can be petite and have curves, which is the proportion of your body shape, not your weight.

Marilyn Monroe ABC >> F >> Frank Powolny

Many of the most iconic and famous photos of Marilyn Monroe were taken by Frank Powolny in 1953. Some of these were promotional photos for films including How to Marry a Millionaire (1953) and Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953). These photos portray the glamorous side to Marilyn which was not the full part of her. Many of her fans often forgot that these photos weren't actually who Marilyn was. Marilyn felt like she lived a double life, Marilyn Monroe and some other girl. Photographer Lawrence Schiller once said "She comes out of the dressing room Norma Jeane. When she stepped infront of the camera, she was Marilyn."

On Food, Fragrance, and Flowers: I love food as long as it has flavor. It’s flavorless food I can’t stand. I usually have a steak and a green salad for my dinner, also for breakfast when I’m really hungry. I keep away from pastries- I used to love them, and ice cream, too. I skip all desserts unless it’s fruit. I just don’t like the taste of pastries. As a kid I did, but now I hate it- and as for candy,      I can take it or leave it, usually leave it. But I love champagne- just give me champagne and good food, and I’m in heaven and love. That’s what make the world go round.
   I like different scents of perfume, beside Chanel No. 5.
   My favorite flower is the delphinium. Roses, any color, are [among my] favorites, too.

In the “Heatwave” number in “There’s no business like show business” , Marilyn Monroe actually accidentally pokes her finger in a dancer’s eye.The dancer is seen trying to hide behind the tree with his hand over his eye, but is enough of a trooper to continue with the number. Right after Marilyn pokes the dancer in the eye she performs a twirl, pokes her head between the branches of the fake tree and gives the dancer a kiss as an apology.

Anonymous asked:

Are there any quotes by marilyn about her pregnancies?

thediaryofmarilynmonroe answered:

Not that I’m aware of.

There is one quote though where Marilyn mentions the topic a little bit. She talks about losing her babies.

About Marilyn Monroe:

“I told Marilyn that Judi and I were thinking of having another child. When I said that, her reaction was visible. Marilyn seemed to disappear indside of herself, almost as if she had to say something that scared her.

“I’ve always wanted a baby,” she said in a voice so quiet that it wasn’t more than a whisper.

I didn’t know what to say. She seemed not to be talking to me. It was almost, as if she was talking to her shrink.

“Having a child…That’s always been my biggest fear. I want a child, and I fear a child,” she continued.

I don’t remember everything she said, but I do recall her mumbling something about the sanity or craziness that part of her family represented. She used the words “nuts” and “weak”. I remember words like “misery” and “unhappiness”. Later I would read that her grandfather had been insane and that he took his own life. But during our conversations, all I saw was fear in Marilyn’s face. And I remember her saying something like:

“Whenever it came close, my body said no, and I lost the baby” – Lawrence Schiller (photographer and friend)
