We are ecstatic over this new Lladro Marilyn Monroe 01009131 sculpture! In a perfect likeness, Lladro has captured the essence that is Marilyn in porcelain. From the ruby red lipstick to the widely known hair, Lladro have outdone themselves.
Marilyn Monroe is timeless. No one will ever forget her name, her hair, or her dress being blown upwards. She is known for her beauty, her intelligence, and her acting. Of course Lladro would design a piece based solely on her. After a couple of “Marilyn” pieces consisting of girls with their dresses blown upwards, they dedicated the perfect sculpture just for Marilyn. Her timeless beauty is now captured in the timeless style of Lladro Porcelain. The subtle glow porcelain gives translates beautifully to Marilyn’s likeness. She’s young, vivacious, and exciting once more.
Marilyn Monroe is internationally known, to the point where any one could identify her. But to anyone who doesn’t know who Marilyn is, here is a short biography:
Born Norma Jeane Mortenson, Marilyn was a model, singer, American actress, and a major sex symbol. She starred in multiple successful motion pictures during the 1950s and early 1960s including Some Like It Hot (1959), The Seven Year Itch (1955), and Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953).
The majority of her childhood was spent in foster homes, but Monroe started her career as a model. The modelling led to a film contract in 1946 with Twentieth Century-Fox. From there, she became an icon and a world wide sensation. Her last film was The Misfits (1961).
Her last years of life were spent ill with a plethora of personal problems and a reputation for being difficult to work with and for unreliability. She was ranked as the sixth-greated female star of all time by the American Film Institute and named No. 1 in FIlm’s Sexiest Women of All Time by TV Guide Network.
