Legends never die. This has never been more true, especially when speaking of the silver screen siren, Marilyn Monroe. 50 years after her departure from this earths soil, Marilyn is still gracing the covers of major fashion magazines and debuting in world renowned film festivals. Vanity Fair pays tribute to the fallen Goddess with exclusive outtakes from her last on-set photoshoot and The 2012 Cannes film festival, has chosen to share the spotlight with Marilyn, as they too celebrate the festivals 65th anniversary.

They say she was born a ward of the state bouncing from orphanage to orphanage, but if you ask me, she was a born a wonder to the world. An enigma in her own right. The offspring of seduction. The creator of fantasy and sexual suggestiveness. Given the name Norma Jeane Mortenson at birth; re-named Marilyn Monroe at her rebirth, draped in an air of devilish innocence, this single starlet lit up the Hollywood skies and the imagination of men and women everywhere. From the likes of icon Andy Warhol to baseball extraordinair, Joe DiMaggio, whom she shared a short lived engagement with before moving on to playwright, Arthur Miller, who wed in 1956; Mrs. Monroe wooed them all! Not even our 35th President stood a chance against this enticing hypnotist. Her aura was like a starving lioness on the prowl seeking whom she may devour… Not even Marilyn knew the effect that she had on her many admirers.

After her untimely death at the tender age of 36, the world grieved and have been mourning ever since. We are not celebrating the anniversary of her death so much as we are revering the existence of a LEGEND. Long live the one and only, queen of the screen, Marilyn Monroe.
