Vanity Fair continues to conduct the orchestra that refuses to stop playing the symphony that celebrates the omnipotent presence of Marilyn Monroe.
The star that eluded the bittersweet experience of aging in front of the cameras and fading away like a tarnished gem died in 1962 at the age of 36. But like Elton John eloquently posed, she lived her life like a Candle in the Wind. Now we understand why she was revered then and absorbingly studied now, especially when you feast your eyes on this latest spread.
Supermodel Kate Moss who adorns the June 2012 cover of British Vogue looks like she could literally be the unrequited love of Adonis. The theme is steeped in a bowl of glitterati; GOLD seems to be the chosen overlay which is an appropriate choice considering the upcoming Olympic Games that will be hosted in London town this summer. Kate looks like she would be a medal worth striving for!
As for who did it best – We have to go with the woman who invented the art of commanding the camera to light up at will. Nobody does it better than Marilyn!
