Symbol of ultimate beauty…MARILYN MONROE
Marilyn Monroe – was an American actress and model. She became one of the most popular sex symbols of the 1950s.

Her first idea for a screen name was Jean Adair. She was also recorded signing into hotels under the names Zelda Zonk and she also signed into a psychiatric clinic under the name Faye Miller. She didn’t change her name to Marilyn Monroe until 1956.
