  1. NOT loving the color or the first show shown… look too forced.  But the rest of them are very beautiful

  3. I’m sorry but she only looked cute in one shot… maybe two if you count the one of her backside. Really wanted to like this. Bummer.

  4. Agree with Anapalron – not at all. And Kittenmasks – the symmertry of MM is not there at all.

  5. This disappoints me because I love Michelle, I think she is a great actress and seems like a lovely woman, but this ed really failed to capture Marilyn’s attitude.  For the most part the outcome is stale and tries too hard, I would have liked to see this shot by someone other than Leibovitz.

  7. <3 Michelle, but she's not the right candidate for this look. She looks really uncomfortable in the cover shot.

    I feel as badly for Michelle as no be could “be” Marilyn. Marilyn herself had a hard time being her.
    Unfortunately there is a vacancy to her eyes and it’s as if she’s thinking “they’re never going to buy this”. The photo where she is reading is the best as she is not looking at the camera. Michelle lacks the self possession and confidence to look at the camera and inhabit Marilyn.
