Breezy Marilyn Monroe statue debuts!

Marilyn Monroe is finally revealed in Pioneer Court on North Michigan Avenue Friday morning, July 15, 2011 in Chicago, Illinois.

Chicago — It's safe to say nobody is having their picture taken as much in Chicago right now as Marilyn Monroe. The scene on Friday in a plaza along Michigan Avenue resembled a movie premiere, with dozens of people clicking pictures as fast as they could at a 26-foot-tall sculpture of Monroe that was unveiled first thing in the morning.
Monroe is taking the famous pose from the movie "The Seven Year Itch," with her skirt billowing as she enjoys the breeze from a subway grate. But that didn't mean people weren't surprised that when they walked around the side and the back of the sculpture they could see clear as day Monroe's lacy underwear.
The sculpture is set to remain on the plaza until spring.
