Ella salta en el sofá // She leaps on the sofa (by Cecil Beaton, 1956)

Todas las estrellas querían ser fotografiadas por Beaton y él quería fotografiar a las estrellas. Para Monroe, Beaton había estado tratando de organizar la sesión durante tres meses, pero ella todavía se presentó una hora y 15 minutos tarde a una suite en el hotel Ambassador de Nueva York.

Él escribió: “Ella retoza, chilla de placer, salta en el sofá. Ella se pone un tallo de flor en la boca, chupando una margarita como si se tratara de un cigarrillo. Es cándida, espontánea, alegre, una puesta en escena infecciosamente jovial. Probablemente terminará en lágrimas.”

All the stars wanted to be photographed by Beaton and he wanted to photograph the stars. For Monroe, Beaton had been trying to arrange the shoot for three months but she still turned up an hour and 15 minutes late at a suite in New York’s Ambassador hotel.

He wrote: “She romps, she squeals with delight, she leaps on the sofa. She puts a flower stem in her mouth, puffing on a daisy as though it were a cigarette. It is an artless, impromptu, high-spirited, infectiously gay performance. It will probably end in tears.”
