Marilyn Monroe was willing to do whatever it took to become the beauty she fantasized about as a teenager. Her sculpted image of herself continued until her death.

A trim figure, tight sweaters, see-through, skin-revealing gowns, makeup, hair coloring, she systematically created the image of the touchingly vulnerable blonde bombshell. Her blue eyes and big smile was a bonus.

“I’ve never see anyone stop a room like that,” said actress Arlene Dahl. “People just wanted to stand near her, smell her fragrance, breathe the same air as she.”

“It’s certainly her beauty I remember most,” recalled songstress Diahann Carroll. “As I sang, I distinctly remember being somewhat distracted by her gaze. Her tragic beauty, so vulnerable…so lost.”

On June 1, 2011 Marilyn Monroe would have been 85-years-old. People remember Marilyn today as if she’s still the 36-year-old seductress.

Her friend and acting Coach Michael Shaw saw her arrive one day at Fox Studio. Marilyn was wearing a pair of pedal pushers, flat shoes and a simple scarf. He said no one paid any attention to her because she looked like a 14-year-old kid. Then she went into her dressing room and said, “Well, time to put her together.” About 40 minutes later she came out and there was a total transformation. Marilyn Monroe walked out, he said. She was a knockout.

On May 7 & 8, Julien’s Auctions in Beverly Hills, Calif., featured a selection of Marilyn Monroe items in its Hollywood Legends auction.

A collection of 13 negatives and transparencies; with copyright; taken by Harold Davidson; of Marilyn reclining on a lounge chair poolside; 7 black-and-white, six color transparencies; sold for $72,000.
