The nude dress, designed by Jean louis for Marilyn to perform at JFK's birthday party. A dress that she described as “a dress only Marilyn Monroe could wear.”
I am so attracted by this woman recently, just can't let the book go before it's finished. Marilyn was known for making all kinds of stories, so instead of reading the biography she wrote, I suggest 'The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe' by J. Randy. It's a more truthful presentation of Marilyn.
Before reading the book, I took Marilyn as a mindless sexy blond like most of the people thought. I envied her, but did not feel pity for her. However, now, I could feel the pain in my heart for her story. She got every girls dream, beauty, fame, men's adoration, but not a father's love. All her life, she's trying to secure a fatherly role, someone that could make her feel safe. She called every meaningful men in her life daddy; she's crazy about JFK, it's just all because she want to feel safety. She wants to have a father.
I really feel thankful of my father's presence in my life. I adore him like a royal fan for the star. He taught me how to think independently, and how to be a strong person. There are two men in a woman's life, the father and the husband. You may switch husband, but you can never switch father. He's the safety harbor and the spiritual support for a girl.
After all, I really wanna say, Thanks Daddy.
