Marilyn Monroe – Monroe & Moran – Playboy Plus

When the iconic feminine beauty posed for the peerless pinup artist, perfection ensued. When Marilyn Monroe posed for Earl Moran in the first of their sessions that took place between I946 and I950, she was just I9 and an aspiring actress, while Moran had established himself as a leading illustrator of beautiful women; his work for magazines and calendars placed him in the company of Albertovargas and George Petty. Although Monroe had done some modeling, she had yet to pose for Tom Kelley, who took the photo that became our first Centerfold and cemented her standing as America’s reigning sex symbol.As you can see, when Monroe posed for Moran she was less the bombshell than the girl next door, whose natural vivacity would beguile any man.
