Before She Was Marilyn Monroe, Norma Jeane Baker Took Her First Selfie, And It's Just Beautiful

Before she dyed her hair platinum. Before she married for the first time. Before she changed her name to something a bit more catchy, Norma Jeane Baker took a selfie.

The young bombshell snapped this self-portrait at a photo booth circa 1940, donning a hounds-tooth jacket, plaid shirt and a wide-brimmed hat. The photograph proves that, even without all the glitz and glamor, Miss Baker had a smile that could light up a room.

The photo, which was originally gifted to a relative, is extremely rare, given that all negatives from the photo booth were later destroyed.
