Marilyn Monroe With Her Hands Pressed Against The Glass Of A Palmist's Window

The future is in your hands.

Photos via TIME

There are countless iconic images of Marilyn Monroe but this has got to be my favorite. The way she looks, from her gyspy-like outfit to her facial expression, is subliminally seductive and trademark Marilyn. But what I love most is the photographer’s direction: picking an unusual location, which is a palmistry center, and posing her with her palms out, as if inviting the viewer to read the lines on her hand and look into her future. Monroe certainly led a colorful life, albeit one with a fateful end.
