Fashion Friday: Marilyn Monroe

Doesn't Marilyn look simply stunning in the poster for this year's Cannes Film Festival? 

I love the interplay of soft gold with the simple black and white photograph and the way that the light seems to illuminate not only from the birthday candle but from Marilyn herself. 

What do you think of this year's poster?  Do you think Marilyn is a good choice for the festival's 65th anniversary?
