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".
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!
You can see both London and France from here…
Baby got back!
Marilyn, where are your hands? Is that why you're smiling?
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.
