The world that acknowledges her as that iconic beauty elevates her to that goddess level so many see her as.

Was she the most beautiful woman in the world for a time? Yes. It is how we perceived her to be and how she was. Norma Jean became Marilyn and in the true sense of Hollywood she was the stuff that dreams are made of.
