She was and still is one of the most remarkable women in the world. Marilyn had grace, elegance, beauty and a real knowledge of what it is to be a human being.

Had she lived she would have shared her 90th birthday the same year as the Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, another iconoclast.  Both of whom are beautiful and smart. The original power women.
