Marilyn: The Face of Cannes, 2012

This photo of Marilyn – taken on her 30th birthday – adorns promotional posters for the Cannes Film Festival, coming in May. It seems fitting that the ultimate movie actress should be chosen to represent the world’s pre-eminent celebration of cinema (and no, I don’t mean the Oscars!)

An official statement explains, “Fifty years after her death, Marilyn remains one of the most important figures of the¬†cinema¬†world with her eternal grace, mystery and seductiveness.”
