Happy Birthday, Marilyn! June 2, 2012

Posted by myblueheavenknits in Uncategorized.

Today, we are in Palm Springs and celebrating what would have been Marilyn Monroe’s 86th birthday.  She got her star on Palm Springs (PS) own Walk Of Fame and her statue is a traveling art display, here just for her big day.  Marilyn was discovered here in PS and although she was a candle in the wind, she will ever be remembered for this famous pose, from Seven Year Itch.

And, yes, she is wearing the cutest white panties with lace trim under that flowing dress:

Now I saw the actual pair of panties, framed and under glass on one of the Hollywood memorabilia shops on Hollywood Blvd. several years ago.  Yes, they were “Grannie Panties”, but maybe a size 6 – gosh, they looked so small although we all know she was one of the plumpest stars in her time.  I guess the camera really adds those pounds, something we can all agree on.  So, Happy Birthday, Marilyn.  We miss you!!
