There’s a tale that 20th Century Fox (the film studio, not the vintage shop) conducted the photo shoot to capture this image of film icon Marilyn Monroe wearing a tight-fitting burlap potato sack. Now, according to The Mind Circle, there are two possible stories behind the shoot.
The first suggests that a female critic was not exactly happy with a low-cut, form-fitting red dress Ms. Monroe wore at an event. She haughtily insisted that Monroe would’ve looked better had she been wearing a potato sack.
Another tale states that some anonymous person claimed Marilyn was so gorgeous, she could make a potato sack look sexy.
While the origin of this photo shoot has been lost to the ages, it’s iconic. Marilyn was beautiful enough to rock a potato sack. And you’re one hot tater tot, so you can too!
