Phony Family Photo
Where would we be without PhotoShop? This is an interesting take on a family photo. I like how Caroline looks repulsed in the Marilyn version, as she seems to be pushing away her mother's nemisis. As you can see from the original print, she's simply trying to keep herself from falling off the ledge (and poor John-John had to be cropped out altogether). What's also interesting is how at-ease and comfortable Marilyn looks in the fabricated portrait. Almost as if she could belong. She's a little dressy for Hyannis port, but what the hay.
For more twists on the Kennedys and more of Marilyn inserted into their lives, read O! Jackie.
