A little glamor...


I found this poster at Beaubourg, just above a restaurant and I really loved it right away. The "curtain" is actually a garland (probably a remain from Christmas?!). I thought that after yesterday's demonstrations and the sh... weather that we're experiencing at the moment, it was time for a little glamor. And when it comes to glamor we have our share in Paris, but Marylin is eternal ;-)

  2. Even less painted she was heart-stopping impressive.

    It says much about her impact that to the present day we can see famous people attempting to imitate Marilyn’s look, such as here.

  3. I spotted this same Marilyn in Paris back in 2006. Glad she is still there!

  4. I just turned off my music, checked PDP, and there was Marilyn. I should add that I was listening to the Kinks:

    "But please don't tread on dearest Marilyn
    Cuz she's not very tough,
    She should have been made of iron or steel,
    But she was only made of flesh and blood."

    What timing. Great shot, Eric.

  8. Great shot, Eric. Hard to believe Marilyn has been dead for almost 50 years. Do you suppose there will still be pictures like this one 50 years from now?

    Details are in the comment box with "Water games at La Defense"

    Cheers!

  10. Bravo Eric...finally a picture worth hanging on my wall.

    Alexa...good question! I wonder if we will even have pictures in 50 years or maybe just "virtual memories"

    Tall Gary, Those legs!...and Marilyn's aren't bad either.

  13. Great ! It is sometimes difficult for me to know what is glamor. I mean glamor or sexy or sensual, that makes some subtleties.
    Now, I have THE reference for glamor. Marilyn, obviously. But she was also sexy and sensual ... so ... ? Drummond is right about Marilyn's pout. Was that more sensual than glamor? I think it was? I love what Fran wrote too. Was that part very sexy in Marilyn? I think it was too.

  14. I always feel so sorry for her. She was glamorous and beautiful, but never seemed happy. It is an interesting shot though. I wonder what it looks like a night when all the lights are on. Beautiful, I imagine!

  16. I can still remember the day she died like it was yesterday. I was ten years old and my mother cut the picture off of the front page of the newspaper[which showed her body being removed from her house on a gurney]because she thought children shouldn't see something like that! Compared to what kids look at today that was nothing! She has entered the ranks of the immortals..huh?? As far as Carla goes, I think it was smart of Sarko to marry a beauty to distract the masses at times...Non?

    And I like the garland from Christmas, feels like a curtain.
