    Thumbs up Norma-Jean Baker's transformation into Marilyn Monroe

    This is one of the most amazing and subtle transformations ever - and all done in the 1940's!

    Doctors just don't seem to have the same quality anymore - or is it that celebrities don't have the restraint?

    A simple improvement - allegedly rhinoplasty & an early form of a chin implant - transformed her from a beauty into sexy starlet!



    beauty is only skin deep (where's the scalpel?)

    I am not seeing a chin implant. I think she was beautiful to start with, and add in blond hair, and hair product, she looks very glamorous.

    hmm im not seeing a chin implant and im not really seeing a nose job either. I think her transformation was all about the styling.

    Oh, yeah, she's had a nose job. that's pretty much common knowledge. maybe a few other things done too.

    I saw a documentary once on early Hollywood PS and it was either
    an old plastic surgeon or an old nurse to a plastic surgeon who had
    done or been present at the whole process of making Norma Jean
    Marilyn. It involved talks with a studiohead, a photographer and a,
    what I assume would now be called, stylist and the medical team.
    There was a chin implant, because the studio people called her a
    "chinless wonder". Looking at her old photos I don't see anything
    really bad, but maybe the photographer had some input there and
    may have exaggerated some things from the point of making more
    perfect photographs.

    I don't see a chin implant - I see weightloss to get rid of the slight double chin. Basically she lost the puppyfat. The new nose is a given. Whatever she had done it was an improvement, unlike a lot of the PS today.

    She also had her teeth worked on in 1948.

    Then in 1950, Johnny Hyde (a boyfriend at the time and a top Hollywood agent) arranged for her to have her chin and nose perfected.

    definitely a chin implant. it's small and subtle but definitely there.
    she had an amazing surgeon because plastic surgery back then was practically unheard of, and was usually bad. i mean, nose jobs were pretty much crappy or really obvious until the 90s.

    Because it was subtle and only enhancing the beauty that was already there,
    not completely changing the features into a new face.

    She was simply gorgeous, and yes, her PS didn't turn her into a stretched out, trout-mouthed looking fool.
