I tried to find the thread that exists of this subject but didn't find it. Anyway, referring to all those terrible pictures of an aged rather awful looking Marilyn with bright turquoise (?) eyeshadow, I think one simple photo could give the answer how she would have looked as older - of course a lot the same as her half-sister Berniece, here in a same picture. Berniece certainly has the same grace and looks.

Marilyn apparently smoked occasionally. It might have affected her aging, as well as the pills and whatnot. (Had she lived to be an old woman, I believe she would have gotten rid of the pills.) Seeing how her half-sister looks like gives a good starting point to what Marilyn would have looked like as an old lady.

Considering they were half sisters, this is definitely the closest we will ever get to knowing what Marilyn would have looked when she was older.

Lovely photo, thanks for posting (IMG:http://www.everlasting-star.net/boards/style_emoticons/default/smile1.gif)

I've always loved that photo of Berniece, she looks beautiful and very like Marilyn (IMG:http://www.everlasting-star.net/boards/style_emoticons/default/throb.gif)

I agree that photos of Berniece show how Marilyn may also have aged - very gracefully. The resemblance actually seems even stronger than when Marilyn was still alive, to me.

I'm not sayin that smoking is healthy, but even if a person smokes it doesn't allways result in lots of wrinkles, alcohol is much worse. Anyway, here's one picture of Berniece, particularly her nose and smile resemble so much what Marilyn looked like yet when Norma Jeane, look closer. She's the one in the left, of course.

I have to agree with you on that. I've been smoking since I was twelve and I still look way younger than many of my former non-smoking friends.
It's how you look after yourself, and Marilyn was very good at that. (IMG:http://www.everlasting-star.net/boards/style_emoticons/default/balloon.gif)

Probably if Marilyn would go on to take pills and to drink she wouldn't be so beautiful now...In that photo Berniece is very similar to Marilyn.

I think that she looked at her best towards the end of her life. Real 60s and more psychologically mature; I always liked the sixties style. And beauty is not all that is important.

I always thought Marilyn looked young for her age despite her habits. I wish her half sister and niece would do more things about her. They are the only genuine link left to Marilyn. Does anyone know if marilyn's niece has any children?

Mona Rae never had children . and Berneice never smoked , Marilyn did smoke occassionally but it wasnt in her daily habit . I sure wish also that Marilyn's neice Mona Rae and her Sister Marilyn would publish like a second book on After Marilyn . I have included some shots from around 1994 nicky62:rolleyes: forgot to attach the pic

I think Marilyn was looking more and more stunning as time went by. I'm sure she would have aged gracefully as her appareance was very important to her, she wouldn't have let herself go like alot of older women do. And her half-sister and mother aged well too.

Also, I don't think smoking always affect the way you ages.. Take a look at Gene Tierney or Audrey Hepburn.. They have been quite heavy smoker since they were young women and they aged incredibly beautifully, more than many people who didn't smoke.

I like particularly the last picture; the jawline comes as close as possible what it would have looked like on her around 70-80 plus everything else, her eyes have remained mostly the same which isn't difficult - but then she could have been through some plastic surgery to tighten the face like Elizabeth Taylor - but then of course she'd have maybe gotten enough of that sort, and just let herself be the way she is; really skillful work Nicky!!

I'm sure she would have been just as beautiful. I did these by using paintshop awhile ago. (IMG:http://www.everlasting-star.net/boards/style_emoticons/default/balloon.gif)

Hi everybody it's been some time that I haven't shared Marilyn age progressed and this weekend mark's her anniversary .
I always dream she is alive and well doing talk shows movies and even catched on with the writers bug.
She could have aged beautifully with some nip and tucks or as they say a little freshen up .
And also today July 30 is her sister Berniece Birthday hope you all enjoy and hold a good thought for Marilyn Love Nicky62
