Now I understand why they say the original is always better.

Anybody who wears a skirt or kilt needs to (1) know that this sort of thing can happen and (2) how to mitigate the situation. Just sayin'

Another reason why I prefer a fitted skirt... no skirt volume to lift like that.
A b-line or a tailored skirt is just fine in a lot of wind....
I think Marilyn had her technique nailed down too - she had a bit more style? He's looking too awkward there... he needs to own that look....

Its true - you can't beat Marilyn.

In addition, Marilyn's shot wasn't a matter of happenstance, it was part of a movie scene. The special effects personnel had a fan on some sort of trolley rigged up to simulate a subway train passing below the sidewalk. They shot the scene in the middle of the night and Marilyn still drew a crowd.

Unfortunately, that shot also clinched Joe DiMaggio's decision to divorce her.

Which didn't stop him from sending flowers to her grave every single day after she died.

Social norms aren't changed by Congress or Parliament; they're changed by a sufficient number of people ignoring the existing ones and publicly practicing new ones.
