Highlight Story

A 26-foot-tall sculpture of Marilyn Monroe with her billowing skirt has been unveiled in Chicago.

The sculpture, which has been erected in Magnificent Mile, shows Monroe's famous pose with her eyes closed and a sublime smile on her face, reports the Daily Express.

The pose has been taken from Monroe's film The Seven Year Itch, when a draft catches her dress as she passes over a grate.

Artist Seward Johnson has made the statue.
