Mr. President...Marilyn Monroe!
Today, 29th May 2012, John Fitzgerald Kennedy would be 95 years old. Ten days ago was the 50th anniversary of the famous song 'Happy Birthday Mr. President' sung by The Blonde Bombshell: Marilyn Monroe.
We will always remember it for three reasons:
- The first one, there were many rumors about Miss Monroe being the President's lover.
- The second one is that it was one of her last major performance, given the fact that she died on 5th August 1962.
-The last one is the stunning dress she was wearing. She was radiant with her open-backed dress made of flesh-colored soufflé gauze encrusted with rhinestones. It was sold in 1999 for $1.26 million at a New York auction.
Mr. President, Be-Bop Lashes wishes you a Happy Birthday, wherever you are.
