Fascinating Vintage Photos of Marilyn Monroe at Home in 1953

These photographs were taken by Alfred Eisenstaedt for an issue of LIFE magazine in 1953. "Eisie" as he was known in the trade, photographed Marilyn on her patio. Marilyn is wearing white pants (and in some photos checkered pants), and a black turtleneck top.

"When I photographed Marilyn Monroe, I mixed up my cameras - one had black-and-white film, the other color," Alfred Eisenstaedt said. "I took many pictures. Only two color ones came out all right. My favorite picture of Marilyn hangs always on the wall in my office. It was taken on the little patio of her Hollywood house."
