Marilyn Monroe: Rare Photos of an Up-and-Coming Star, 1952

It’s a scene straight out of a movie — but in this case, it’s nothing less than a pivotal moment in a real-life Hollywood legend’s life. Clad in a show-stopping velvet dress and fur stole, a young Marilyn Monroe glides across the floor of the Club Del Mar in Santa Monica, Calif., in January 1952. The starlet is there to pick up an award, the “Henrietta” for Best Young Box Office Personality from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (the organization that bestows the Golden Globes).
