Other than the dress, I didn't think this resembled Marilyn very much. In life, she was almost always a little fuller in the cheeks, legs and upper arms. She was a size twelve, where this figure is maybe a size six, or an eight.
Jamie commented that the museum got lazy and threw a Marilyn head on a random body, but I thought it was a comment on today's standards for celebrities. I really believe that if she were alive and trying to compete in today's market, she would have starved herself down to a zero and had her real breasts redone into hard, perky little D's.
Sometimes I'm so glad that I don't have to compete against all the tiny girls, old or young. I didn't mind a few years ago (before switching jobs and quitting smoking) but these last few years have kicked my ass and it's kind of difficult to stay that smaller size unless you starve or start running.
I am no runner, lol.
I do have a goal to lose some weight, but even if I don't, I will continue to dress well and take care of my hair and make-up. I'll buy sexy shoes and wear pencil skirts, and I'll flirt like mad with my husband when he's least expecting it. That always makes me feel perfect.
