It was said that though she had a vast fortune and all the fame in the world, Marilyn owned no jewelry and only considered her collection of books and records amongst her most cherished possessions. Despite all her success, she still stayed in a modest one-room apartment at the Beverly Carlton Hotel (in Beverly Hills, of course). I just adore this photo of her. She had such a comfy reading corner, and simple. I could stay there for days.
