Save Room For Dessert!

Have you ever had a meal so good and filling that you actually turned down the climactic finish of cherries jubilee, baked Alaska or strawberry cheesecake?  Well, if a person could be dessert, it would be Marilyn Monroe as pictured below, and there isn't a man alive who could resist her.  Marilyn is always beautiful, but in this costume she is positively packed with sugar and spice and everything nice.  I ran across this amazing picture, and just had to do a little tribute to share with my dear Readers.  Is she magnificent or what?

  1. An absolutely amazing photograph.

    To paraphrase Charlie Brown: I know I may not be the epitome of female pulchritude, but why do we have to have Marilyn to emphasize it.

    1. Amen! That hat!! I wonder what my pastor would think if I wore it to Mass today? I want that hat!

  2. Hmm. The first thing I thought of when I saw this was Eliza Doolittle. That's a role Marilyn could've done, I bet (though not as good as Audrey, obviously). If someone had thought to put her in a costume drama of some sort, it probably would've been a supporting role in a big ensemble so she wouldn't have had to carry the film, perhaps with Cukor at the helm to guide her.

    1. Cukor would have been good for Marilyn, Rich -- he was a wonderful director of women!
