This famous Frank Worth photoshoot set at the Beverly Carlton Hotel  in 1951, featuring Marilyn wearing a lovely swimsuit and gorgeous sandals with lucite platforms, is one of my favourites. She looked more beautiful than ever and happy.
In this picture Marilyn was applying lotion to her legs. The lotion in question was Nivea skin oil which, according to the advert above, was the “liquid counterpart of Nivea Creme, with similar protective, soothing qualities.”
 The Beverly Carlton has been renovated as the Avalon Hotel. The location is the same – West Olympic Boulevard in Beverly Hills.
