Today’s Top 5

Timeless!

What always amazes me about Marilyn is that in just about every photo taken of her all those years ago, it appears each photo could have been taken today...there is no such thing as a dated look to her style, her hair, her clothes, her makeup. It's really pretty amazing.

Find the Mandolin

It's a good thing they mentioned the mandolin, or I wouldn't have noticed it.
