It seems the world is crazy for Marilyn Monroe all over again. With the success of the film My Week With Marilyn (including a Best Actress Oscar nomination for Michelle Williams) and another rumoured biopic starring Naomi Watts, Marilyn is back in force.

This year’s Cannes International Film Festival celebrates and pays tribute the iconic star by featuring Marilyn on the festivals poster.

The festival organisers explain, “the festival is a temple of glamour and Marilyn is its perfect incarnation. Their coming together symbolizes the ideal of simplicity and grace.”
