Inspiration Friday, Norma Jeane


I recently discovered the most wonderful tumblr blog Fashion + Suggestion with an amazing collection of Norma Jeane photos! I thought I'd seen all there was to see of the girl that became Marilyn Monroe, but I was so wrong. Here are some new to me Norma Jeane photos that I just adore! Most of which have a fall like feeling to them ;o)









All photos found here

Have a lovely weekend! xo

This a wonderful inspirational post! She looks completely differnet. Like a care free young girl, instead of the va va voom sex symbol that she was later in life. I love these photos :D

I love Marylin, I have seen most of the photos before, but I always like to see them one more time.
I like to see her before been a sex symbol.

thank you for sharing these!! It is a nice change from the sex pot pictures you usually see of her!

She was so lovely pre-Marilyn, or rather pre-chin reduction, hairline electrolysis, and nose job. *Sigh* The things some do for beauty... I can't wait to see the British Marilyn drama with Michele Williams.

Cheers,

Beautiful photos of a beautiful girl! So sad her life ended he way it did. She should have lived forever...

Marilyn is always an inspiration

It's interesting to see her with such an innocent, girlish look in her eyes. You know, before all the madness. I wonder what her mind was like back then.
