Marilyn Monroe was not perfect. She had a reputation for being irresponsible, and she was at times the poster child for tardiness. But Marilyn was also unrelentingly beautiful; maybe because of that trait, a little creative license was allowed on more than one occasion.
Over the past four years, Marilyn Monroe--who is dead, you must understand--has been on the cover of Vanity Fair magazine three times! The latest cover shows a radiantly fresh-faced Marilyn, still a model, photographed by Andre de Dienes.
