Of course, there is The Face...luminous, incandescent. Enveloped by a halo of swirling blonde curls, Marilyn smiles out at us radiantly, with the half-lowered eyelids and moist, red lips that were already her trademark. Her posture - not quite leaning forward, shoulders slightly raised, knees slightly bent - suggests a modest little girl, shy, almost embarassed, and completely unaware of her effect on people. This suggestion of childlike innocence and touching vulnerability, hidden within the provocative form of a strikingly beautiful woman, is what made Marilyn Monroe unique; it is what made her a star and drew people to here, women as well as men.
