  • Marilyn's raised skirt is raising eyebrows.

    Marilyn Monroe, in her iconic white dress, is catching a breeze in the Windy City and drawing some controversy.

    At 26-feet, a towering sculpture of Monroe's famous pose from the film "The Seven Year Itch" was unveiled on Chicago's Magnificent Mile. In the film, Monroe's dress billows as she passes over a subway grate.

    But the giant re-creation at Pioneer Court of that famous scene is raising eyebrows by revealing too much Marilyn for some people.

    The sculpture, entitled "Forever Marilyn" by artist J. Seward Johnson, leaves little to the imagination. The crowd at the plaza can go around to the side and at the back of the sculpture, see Monroe's lace panties.

      OMG I love it! I totally adore Marilyn Monroe, when I was in high school I did a project on her and it was all down hill from there!

      My opinion: if you don't like it, don't look at it!
      Typos are very important to all written form. It gives the reader something to look for so they aren't distracted by the total lack of content in your writing.

        This may just make my wife want to take a trip to Chicago. She loves MM. Don't get me wrong, I like her. But, my wife is the MM nut.

          Maybe this should replace that French thing that's on Ellis Island?

          There's definitely something very 'American' about this.

          And that's a good feeling... um, if you're American.

                  Heh heh, those are some big ol heavy duty granny panties. They cover more than a lot of girls pants nowadays.

                    people are way to uptight about things!

                    Seriously...those bloomers are more respectable than the average 18 year olds formal wear!

                    And if you really don't want to see it, then just don't crane your neck up.

                      And don't those panties also represent one of the most irresistible Meccas for vandals?

                      Hmm... looks like a NSFW PS party coming soon.

                        thought a similar thing that could be pitched to them.

                          I think you might not be the first with that thought.

                              ha ha ha Bladez!

                              If it's all the same to you, I'd rather not go into that dark place of my mind where I could even consider the concept of Marilyn breaking wind.

                              By the way, in the original photograph, why are only girls looking up her skirt? I find that somewhat troubling.

                              (PS. Not that I wouldn't take a sneaky peek!)
