Surpassing decades of wrongfully established stereotypes, Marilyn Monroe’s iconic figure gets to be celebrated to this very day and within good reasons. Photographer Heike Suhre brought the femme fatale spirit back under the spotlight, by building her glamorous photo shoot upon the same ingredients that left the world madly in love all those years ago: blonde beauty, classic curves, red lips and sparkling diamonds.
The timeless portrait evoking Marilyn’s utterly seductive character has model Melissa Houben (www.melissahouben.com) reenacting some of the star’s most famous poses, so keen on emphasizing the radiant, almost mystical beauty still living inside each and every woman. Melissa’s striking figure akin to Marilyn’s classic curvy silhouette feels like a glimpse of a nostalgic past being brought back to life.
Nothing can quite compare to the effortless appeal, the undeniable sense of elegance and the long-living charm exuded by the unique Marilyn Monroe, but luckily enough we still get to rediscover her glow and fell in love with her spirit time and time again, due to moments like this one.
