Poor sweet Marilyn... sandwiched between Mick Jagger and the resident grabber.
 
The Audrey and the Marilyn are classic but I love the blurred one of Lee Miller.
 
Lee Miller was a famous muse among the Modernist circles in Paris. Beyond being a strikingly beautiful woman who gained the attention of Picasso as well as Man Ray, she was a talented photographer herself. Miller took any number of photographic self-portraits:

As a war photographer, the horrors she witnessed and documented at the concentration camp, Dachau, after it was liberated, haunted her for the rest of her life. In the years that followed, she became an alcoholic to dull the pain. 'She was a peacetime casualty,' says her colleague and fellow photographer David Scherman; but not before she had achieved so much... including some of the most horrific and iconic images of the war.
