TAKE A WORD


VINTAGE BEAUTY

Marie, has asked for VINTAGE BEAUTY this week at Take a Word and at first I was a little stumped about who I might choose.   Then I thought about Marilyn, who was definitely a beauty, but what about vintage ... can she be counted as vintage I wondered.  I'd say yes, it is after all around 50 years since she sang : Happy Birthday, Mr President!!!

Thank you for looking and taking the time to comment.

I am vintage too!!!
She was a beauty!!!
I was a fan of her many different types of films. I think her acting was under rated.

Those scintillating colours are perfect for showing off Marilyn's sensual pout, stunning presentation, Ann!
(I wonder how many will notice the 'fallen' on my piece today, but I knew you would!!)

She is a stuningly beautiful subject and I adore what you have done with her. The lighting, the colours, the smokey background. First rate example of vintage beauty!
