She still brings tears to my eyes! When I was a child I thought she was a kind
of Goddess, and ofcourse she was. I was so inspired by her, and cried when
she was found dead in her Hollywood home. I realised all of a sudden that the
world I was living in couldn't accomodate someone as luminous, intelligent, funny
radiant and ofcourse vulnerable as Marilyn. This photo was taken by Cecil Beaton,
in my opinion, the master portrait photographer, amongst other things.
