Marilyn's smile

Bert Stern, ca 1962
Marilyn Monroe - icon and in so many ways, a sad story.  But today I came across this image of Marilyn taken by the famed photographer Bert Stern, in 1962 in a photo-shoot that made him famous and I was so struck by her smile that I just had to do a collage.  Fun on a cloudy Saturday - putting off all those other things I 'really' had to do.

PS - the saddle shoes are actually hers.
