It's probably safe to say Marilyn Monroe is still considered one of the most beautiful women ever, even fifty years after her death!   Why?  Because of her attitude!  Her style!  And most importantly, her curves!   Do you know she would most likely be considered "plus size" in today's model standards?

So how did she maintain that voluptuous body?  Apparently by eating eggs, milk and ice cream!   There's an old issue of Pageant magazine, where the vixen reveals her diet.   It's not exactly one I'd follow!
