"People always thought they knew who I was..."
THE LAST SITTING
June. 1962. Marilyn Monroe arrived at the Hotel Bel-Air. Five hours late. She had agreed to a photo sitting for Vogue magazine with photographer Bert Stern. Marilyn never granted photo sittings. 2,571 photographs of world-famous designer fashion and nudes were taken. The photographs would be the final glimpse into the life of the Hollywood icon. What was said? Only two people know. Two people who would never meet again. Six weeks after the photo sitting, Marilyn Monroe, the Original American Goddess, would be dead.
