Cecil Beaton
‘She Was Just Beautiful, All the Time’

Distinguished British photographer Cecil Beaton and his New York-based assistant Ed Pfizenmaier share memories on their famous 1956 shoot with Marilyn Monroe. Both men were impressed by how beautiful she was in-person and her “variety of moves” in front of the camera. Pfizenmaier explains how both he and Beaton knew it would be a successful shoot from the onset because Monroe walked in and immediately discarded her shoes: “I kind of adore somebody that throws their shoes off…in other words, she wanted to work!”
