before and after blondes

Before the blonde,
before the Marilyn,
when she was still Norma Jean Mortenson...

No one ever told me I was pretty when I was a little girl. All little girls should be told they are pretty, even if they aren't. - Marilyn Monroe

After the blonde,
after the star was born,
a living icon, candy for any camera lucky enough to spy her...

I knew I belonged to the public and to the world, not because I was talented or even beautiful, but because I had never belonged to anything or anyone else. - Marilyn Monroe

The fascination continues...
