It’s been 50 years since the death of Marilyn Monroe, and Playboy is honoring the iconic star with a gallery of nude photos spanning the actress's illustrious career. The rare photos come from Playboy’s expansive archive and feature shots of Monroe in bed, at the pool, and on movie sets, among other locations. One photo, the last Marilyn ever took in the buff, was shot two days before the star's death.
“It's really all about the collection and the way it’s composed," Jimmy Jellinek, Playboy's editorial director, told The Daily Mail. "This is the first time we've shown the totality of our collection, from the beginning to almost days before the end of her life. It showcases the arc of her life.”
