The December issue of Playboy will feature a tribute to Marilyn Monroe, called ‘The Nude Marilyn,’ marking the 50th anniversary of her death. Take a look at some of the exclusive photos of Marilyn Monroe in the nude here…
The very first issue of Playboy featured Marilyn Monroe as the cover girl, so it’s no wonder the world famous magazine is paying her tribute. Take a look at the uncensored nude photos here:
The classic nude photos range from her first days as a pin-up girl to her final pictorials with the world’s leading photographers. One of the photos by Lawrence Schiller is the last nude photo ever taken of Monroe, taken just two days before her death. Some of her were taken on movie sets, and some in bed at her home.
The December issue featuring ‘The Nude Marilyn’ also features editorials by Roger Ebert and Kim Morgan, recollections from Playboy Publisher Hugh Hefner and an excerpt by novelist John Updike. That famous photograph by Tom Kelley, with Monroe on red velvet cloth, was purchased by Hefner, and says Ebert, it would not be going too far to say it was the making of Hef’s new magazine.
The December issue hits newsstands November 20.
