The “Ballerina” series is one of Milton and Marilyn’s most recognized collaborations and was created in October of 1954 at the New York studio. Clothing designer Anne Klein sent various outfits to Milton’s studio for Marilyn to wear, however, all the outfits were 2 sizes too small. All of the poses in this sitting amusingly deal with Marilyn’s problem of holding up the ill-fitting tulle and satin dress. Marilyn was in New York for the opening of the Seven Year Itch.

This image captures Marilyn appearing angelic yet seductive, a look that became legendary and defined her appeal. With her toes pointed inward, a smile on her face, and a finger on her chin, Marilyn evokes the demure child playing dress up. The most recognized image from this sitting was chosen as one of Time Life’s 3 most popular images of the 20th Century.
