Most Iconic Swimsuits: Marilyn Monroe

Summer is now in full swing with the weekend's barbecues and bronzing by the pool, and so it's time for our annual iconic swimwear round-up. This year, we've included some new faces (Sports Illustrated's most recent cover girl Irina Shayk) amid old favorites (the one and only, Marilyn Monroe). Take a look below and tell us which iconic bikini or one piece you wish you could romp in the waves in.

Los Angeles, Dec 3 - A newly discovered film clip which purportedly shows Hollywood legend Marilyn Monroe smoking pot is to be put up for sale on eBay by a collector who says he paid $275,000 for the footage.

Keya Morgan, a New York-based collector, who had been making a documentary about Monroe's death, said the footage was taken by a friend of Monroe's sometime in the late 50s.

The Monroe friend, who is only identified by the name "Gretchen," retains the copyright.

"I got (the pot). It was mine. It was just passed around. It was not a party. It was just a get-together. You know, come over and hang out," she was quoted as saying by the Los Angeles Times.

In addition to showing Monroe smoking, it also shows her relaxing on a couch, giggling and bizarrely smelling her armpit.

Monroe died apparently of an overdose of barbiturates in 1962 at age 36.
