Remembering Marilyn Monroe

The ultimate sex symbol.  A pop culture icon that was immortalized through many a different mediums. 

Last August 5, was Marilyn's 49th death anniversary. Official records said that she died of a drug overdose but there were a lot of questions that remain unanswered until today. But no matter the uncertainty surrounding her death, there is no doubt as to her lasting legacy to the social culture. She has been imitated by many but never truly captured in essence. The one and the only Marilyn Monroe (and that's coming from someone who was born in 1968).  You just can't help falling in love with this woman.
The picture gave life to the term sex symbol.

Painter Andy Warhol drew a couple of inspirations from this Marilyn photo.
