"Upskirt Photo" or "Marilyn Moon-roe"

Recently, Chicago got a little flash of Hollywood.  On north Michigan Avenue, in a spot called "Pioneer Square", Seward Johnson's "Forever Marilyn" blew into town.  You would think a 27 foot woman would know better than to wear a dress like that in a place dubbed, "The Windy City".

On Tuesday at lunch, I walked up to see the statue and snap some pictures.

The funny thing is, I took a picture like this one with my cell phone, posted it to Facebook, and tried to tag that Sassy Carnival Girl, but failed.  But about 10 minutes after I posted it, she commented on the picture.  Spooky!

That's a "stiff" breeze!

Marilyn-03

You can see both London and France from here…

Marilyn-04

Wonder how long it will be before a graffiti artist decides he can't resist the temptation?

Marilyn-05

Baby got back!

  Marilyn, where are your hands?  Is that why you're smiling?

Marilyn-08

Back in 2009, Seward Johnson had another statue in the same plaza.  No one was trying to look up her skirt.

My review.  I get that it's derivative, and not original.  And by looking at Marilyn's feet, I can tell she's going to show some age pretty quick unless she's going to get her makeup done frequently.  With all that said, I like it.  It put a smile on my face, and it certainly had people talking.

And yet, no picture of someone standing between her legs, looking straight up, mouth open.

All I gotta say is thank God she's wearing underwear!

@Joshua: how much you wanna bet he's going back the second he has time to do just that?
