Marilyn Monroe “Marilyn always dreamt of being an actress. She didn’t, by the way, dream of being just a star. She dreamt of being an actress. And she had always lived somehow with that dream. And that is why, despite the fact that she became one of the most unusual and outstanding stars of all time, she herself was never satisfied. When she came to New York, she began to perceive the possibilities of really accomplishing her dream, of being an actress.” ~Lee Strasberg I don’t mind living in a man’s world as long as I can be a woman in it. Marilyn Monroe No one ever told me I was pretty when I was a little girl. All little girls should be told they’re pretty, even if they aren’t. Marilyn Monroe I’m very definitely a woman and I enjoy it. Marilyn Monroe If I’d observed all the rules, I’d never have got anywhere. Marilyn Monroe

There are so many of these out there- I just picked my favs of this set.
Jean Patchett 1926-2002 Vogue Model. Modeled in the 40’s , 50’s and early 60’s. In a period when models could be deliciously snooty, Ms. Patchett was more modest: not the girl-next-door type, but not as sophisticated as Ms. Parker, either. She was punctual and polite, often saying ”yes, ma’am” and ”no, sir.” When she introduced herself to an editor or a photographer, she said: ”I’m Jean Patchett. You don’t darn it. You patch it.” So cute! From: http://www.nytimes.com/2002/02/04/nyregion/jean-patchett-75-a-model-who-helped-define-the-50-s.html Enjoy the photos!
