243 Marilyn Monroe is famous for answering with "I'm wearing Chanel No. 5" when once asked by a reporter if she was wearing any underwear.
She is also famous for saying "Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world".
Then there is the one she is probably most famous for: "I don't know who invented high heels, but all women owe him a lot".
It is pretty obvious that Marilyn understood the power that high heels have over most heterosexual men.
Based on the following picture, she also knew that clear 'hooker' heels had a little something extra going on as well.
The heels she is wearing in the picture above are actually pretty cool, as well as being sexy. To my eye it looks like the ribbon holding them to her feet is one piece of ribbon that goes through a hole under the toes, does a cross-over over her toes, then goes under the arch of the shoe, and back up to tie around her ankle.
Without a doubt the picture that Marilyn is most famous for is this one following.
These picture, and the series it comes from, were taken as promotional pictures for the movie "The Seven Year Itch". Apparently the idea for this shoot for the promotional of the film came from Marilyn herself after actually having her dress lifted like this when walking over a de-frosting grade when on a date.
This famous up-skirt shoot was done (in New York) at around 1:00 a.m. in the morning and there was a crowed of around 5,000 people there—mostly men. Marilyn was required to repeat the shoot sequence 15 times before the director was happy with the results.
When I was a teen I didn't really get the big deal about Marilyn Monroe, but now I am a bit older I think I do understand how amazing she was for her time. I didn't used to think that she was that attractive, but now I have even changed my thinking on that. She was hot and she knew it.
They obviously like her in Japan too. At one stage, and it may still be there, they did a large rice field picture of Marilyn using 15 different types of rice.
One thing is for sure, if Marilyn lived today she would not be doing this shoot. She would likely either have no panties on at all or would be wearing a very revealing thong.
And no some eye candy for you ... and I am sure Marilyn would have loved to have tried heels like these to see how well they worked.
