Marilyn Monroe – Ballerina Sitting (B-08)

The Essential Marilyn Collection
Milton H. Greene
  • The Ballerina series is one of Milton & Marilyn’s most recognized collaborations. It was created in October of 1954 at Milton's New York studio. Clothing Designer Anne Klein sent various outfits to Milton’s studio for Marilyn to wear. However all the outfits were 2 sizes too small. 

All of the poses in this sitting amusingly deal with Marilyn’s problem of holding up the ill-fitting tulle and satin dress.This image captures Marilyn appearing angelic, yet seductive, a look that became legendary and defined her appeal. 

Here, Marilyn is shown from the waist up.Pin_it_button
