To him she seemed so beautiful, so seductive, so different from ordinary people, that he could not understand why no one was as disturbed as he by the clicking of her heels on the paving stones, why no one else’s heart was wild with the breeze stirred by the sighs of her veils, why everyone did not go mad with the movements of her braid, the flight of her hands, the gold of her laughter. He had not missed a single one of her gestures, not one of the indications of her character, but he did not dare approach her for fear of destroying the spell.

Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez (via observando)

Because once you destroy the spell, all is a slippery slope.

Marilyn Monroe in an unused costume for Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953)

This jeweled belt and feather fan are part of the original William “Billy” Travilla designed costume Marilyn was to have worn during the "Diamonds Are A Girl’s Best Friend" number from “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.” The publicity surrounding the recent discovery that Marilyn was the nude model in the “Velvet Dreams” calendar photo rendered this particular costume too revealing. The pink gown worn in the film, also designed by William “Billy” Travilla, was a last minute replacement. (x)
