Great style is timeless. The photo is from the 1930s, but this beach wear wouldn't look out of place in the present day. I particularly like the sunglasses.

It is presumably a staged photo, but conveys the feeling of a snapshot. Super!

BTW this is a *very* famous actress, from the golden age of Hollywood. Can you name her?

@fitheach I was almost obsessed with Marilyn Monroe (and the circumstances of her death) as a teenager. I had a massive poster of her looking surprised at the hot air blowing up from a grate stuck on my wall.

I'm sure the teenage you was only interested in the photographic aesthetics.


@fitheach Well yes. Obviously but there were traits there are were subsequently repeated later (for me)

Troubled childhood, misunderstood high profile genius, drug dependency, hangers-on coupled with a conspiracy theory.

Kurt Cobain, Ian Curtis et al.

'They were so vulnerable. Why didn't we do anything ? If only we could have helped her/him !'

It is the often discussed correlation between genius and an unstable personality. The creativity that comes from living on the edge, and often going beyond that point.
