In "Marilyn in Fashion," by Christopher Nickens and George Zeno, the authors quote Marilyn Monroe as having said, "I believe your body should make your clothes look good -- instead of using clothes to make the body conform to what is considered fashionable at the moment, distorted or not. That's why I don't care for 'un-organic clothes' -- clothes that have no relation to the body. Clothes, it seems to me, should have a relationship to the body, not be something distinct from it."
The woman with Marilyn Monroe in this photo is Pat Newcomb, her publicist/companion. The man in the photo -- an Antonio Sabato lookalike -- is not identified. Photo by Keya Morgan/Lincolnimages.com/Provided by the authors
