In Death 24x a Second, Laura Mulvey describes how the stillness of the photograph poses a threat to our perception of the moving image: Jeanine Basinger, who worked as a cinema usher in the s, describes how the movie Monroe was not especially appreciated in her cinema: Eve Arnold noted that: With me, she was in charge of the situation.
Miller and Toubiana In my paintings, Figure 2: I show her from both sides, suggest- ing a fully formed woman. But the shoulder straps from her dress disappear into the blackness of the background, reinforcing the intangibility of The Girl, a figurative Jane Doe who can only be identified by the trace of her body in her second skin dress.
In this context Marilyn Monroe is hard to ignore, as, although her films may now be little watched, her image is still very much alive and is used to sell products from make-up to vodka. The living Monroe became famous in the s, alongside American consumerism, and as such she has become the super superstar of mass production. Andy Warhol, the artist best known for critiquing this period of peak Americana, has helped to cement the visual appeal of Monroe with a series of silk-screen portraits that are now, arguably, his best known works.
This paused image seems to be almost exactly the same as the Marilyns that Andy Warhol made after her death, in his silk-screened image to her death-mask. The imaginary superimposition of the Warhol image onto the trace of the living Marilyn has a sense of deferred meaning, as though her death was already prefigured in this pose.
Monroe was known to be very particular in the selection of her image for publica- tion and, unusually for the time, had rights over what could be reproduced. Hamilton was interested in showing Monroe in control of her image, rather than depicting her in her customary role as subject.
She carefully devel- oped her own image, and despite her positioning as the ultimate subject of the male gaze she appears, as identified by Hamilton, to have worked hard for control of this image.
Her anxiety about how she came across on-screen, as seen in her reliance on her acting coach and her tendency to be late on set, is indicative of her struggle for control. My Ghoul paintings are in many ways about this struggle — the way that her constructed image and the trappings of this image consumed and clothed the real woman. Ultimately, the way she looked on-screen is everything that we reliably know about Monroe. It is said that she had a natural style that tapped into some- thing real, authentic and unbridled.
It is often noted that she felt no embar- rassment in being naked — suggesting that she had a childlike, innocent nature. Figure 3: They wear identical white dresses.

She appears to have treated clothes as mere tools of her trade and would borrow items for public appearances whenever she could rather than buy them. She tended to gauge the effectiveness of an outfit in a particular situation and if it worked she would wear it over and over. For the premiere of How to Marry a Millionaire Negulesco, , in November of that year, everything she wore was on loan from the studio: Travilla fashioned the gown in a sort of sexy fairy-princess style from leftover material […].
It is white lace over nude crepe with the lace embellished by thousands of tiny opalescent sequins […] Marilyn had already been seen in the dress two months earlier when she made her TV debut on the Jack Benny Show. The gloves, earrings, shoes, and even the platinum polish on her finger and toenails were all the property of Fox […] When this fabulous evening was over, Monroe had to report back to the studio where she was, like Cinderella, stripped of all her glittering finery.
Nickens and Zeno Monroe often wore halter neck dresses, which were very popular in the s: Painting this dress Figure 6 is akin to painting the essence of Marilyn. Most voluptuous stars in the early s had dark hair, della Vittoria, Rome.
Hair colour tends to darken with age and the and is considered to be one of the association with youth is thought to be at the root of the appeal of the blonde masterpieces of Roman Jahme, Yet despite the seediness of her surroundings and her damaged costume, her whiter-than-white powdery skin transforms her into an otherworldly Blakeian creature.
In , art historian J. This inherent racism was still in popular parlance in mid-century America as Richard Dyer notes: To be the ideal Monroe had to be white, and not just white but blonde, the most ambiguous white you can get she was not a natural blonde, she started dyeing her hair in […] she could have been some sort of star had she been dark, but not the ultimate embodiment of the desirable woman.
As Technicolor became popular in the mid-twentieth century, a number of male film theorists stated a preference for black and white, which they saw as truer to the ideals of cinema. This is, argues Rosalind Galt, because colour is seen as having an association with adornment and femininity. Can it be mere coincidence that her two most critically acclaimed films, Some Like it Hot Wilder, and The Misfits, are both black and white? In The Misfits Monroe as the sweet-natured, damaged, Roslyn wears one of her most copied dresses available to order online from numerous compa- nies , a white cherry-print sundress Figure 7.

The dress is a perfect combi- nation of sweet the cherry print with its virginal connotations and seductive low cut, slip-off-the- shoulder ties, figure-hugging. Monroe divorced Miller soon after the film was completed.
This face, with its parted lips and lowered lids, has become, even more than the Monroe body, the essence of Marilyn. Of the many paintings that I have made of Monroe, most are faceless Lomax The Ghoul series goes one step further; it is also bodiless. She is like a wisp of air, a nothingness to be projected upon.

My disembodied depictions reflect this slipperiness; the real Monroe, whom of course we can never really know, is never actually visible at all.
The outfit for some reason was never cleaned Hansford At a BFI panel discussion on Monroe, panellist Bonnie Greer described how she considers Monroe to be a subversive figure, criti- quing the whiteness that she is often said to embody.

She is now an avatar for whatever we decide to project upon her. The real flesh and blood person that was Marilyn Monroe is no longer relevant or even real. She is a ghoul, a spectre. Occasionally the real dresses are exhibited in museums with all the disap- pointing charisma of lifeless nothings, padded out by fake mannequin forms.
But the stilled images of her in these dresses manage to remain fresh, and dare I say strangely relevant. The ghostly whiteness of my Ghoul paintings, with the colour-free seriousness of black and white, may seem to play to the dark, conspiratorial stories of Monroe victimhood.
But I see them in a different way: Rather than mawk- ish shrouds, they are wiggling flesh rendered in fabric, stilled and captured in oily, viscous paint.

Cliff hanger continues which really ticks me off. This is not enticing me The story continues with a little bit more back story on Michael, who is a major douch. This is not enticing me to follow this author at all.
Too many authors are take a 1 vol or at most 2 vol book and stretching it out to 3 vols but making each vol short under pages. This is not an author that I intend to read again! Marilyn Cruise has done it again in her sequel White Chapel. I absolutely adored this novel and found myself turning the pages eagerly wanting more. I cannot wait for her the last book in the series to be released!
Cruise effectively continues the story of a stripper and a billionaire who wishes to marry her for an inheritance. This novel is crazy passionate and had me not knowing my feelings toward the two as a couple. My opinions were changing and developing with every turn in the story.
There Marilyn Cruise has done it again in her sequel White Chapel. There is only three things you need to accomplish tonight: The first book in this series, The Black Chapel, is a blast. This book, The White Chapel, is great as well. It is a bit slower because Scarlett is at a low point in her life, feeling guilty about all of her lies but not brave enough to speak her truth.
Despite wanting to shake her at times, I get that it is hard to be brave, and I still enjoyed her and Michael's dynamic throughout this book. Scarlett starts getting it back together at the end, so I am looking forward to seeing her development in The first book in this series, The Black Chapel, is a blast. Scarlett starts getting it back together at the end, so I am looking forward to seeing her development in the third book!
Which I need to dive into right now, so if you'll excuse me Jun 01, Lorraine Brattin rated it it was amazing. Incredible book 2 I loved how we got to learn more about the characters Scarlett and Michael and how their lives have come together in this gripping story about love and lies.
I also love how Michael's mom becomes a key part of their story. Ready for book 3 in the series and hope to find how this love story ends.
Dec 31, Marie rated it really liked it. Just when things are finally looking up for Scarlett and Michael, the shit hits the fan and the heartbreak begins anew.

Absolutely Blindsided Marilyn Cruise has definitely left me blindsided. I never saw how Michael and Scarlet's story would have turned out this way.
I am absolutely loving their story. I am so excited about the third book to find out what happens. Jul 31, Wendy Taylor-Hamilton rated it it was amazing.
Love Diana I bought the first installment because it was free. This one I paid for. I was not disappointed one bit. The inheritance gets shuffled around so much you need a score card.
Can't wait to see how this plays out.
