Stunning original color 8 x 10 negative of Monroe taken during a Frank Powolny glamour shoot in 1953, depicting the starlet wrapped in white fur and wearing diamond earrings. In fine condition. Monroe and Powolny most famously teamed up in 1953 for a series of stunning, artfully framed publicity stills for the 1953 film Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. Immortalized for his classic World War II pinup of Betty Grable, Powolny remained a trusted photographer for Monroe throughout her career, and is noted as taking the last known still photographs of the starlet during production of Something's Got to Give, one week before her death in 1962.
