Hi Ladies - hoping you all can help me out here! I picked up this really cool piece of stretch knit years ago, but have never gotten around to sewing it because - I'm embarassed to admit - I don't know who the faces in the fabric are, and I'm sure someone will ask!

I want to make a simple summer knit dress, I'm thinking two of the faces may be JFK and Marilyn Monroe, but not sure. Any movie buffs, history buffs, or those with just really great facial recognition that can help me? I'll try to insert the picture here:
Thanks in advance!

Trying to figure out what I'm doing wrong, I keep getting the dreaded red x in a box!

Liz - whatever you did, you are GOOD! I finally got my link to work up above as well, hopefully someone can enlighten me as to whose face will be stretched across my bum!

The woman with her chin pushed forward is Marilyn Monroe. I believe I also see Elizabeth Taylor and possibly Audrey Hepburn.

and the man with the jfk appearance looks a bit like Rock Hudson. The hairline part is opposite most of the pics I found, but the image could be reversed.

Women to me are Marilyn Monroe and Liz Taylor.

Men appear to be Paul Newman, the smaller face that recedes into the background, and the Kennedy-esque face seems more like a young Teddy Kennedy than John. It is a softer, younger face to my eye.

The woman with the distinctly almond eyes might be Sophia Loren (this is the one I originally thought was Hepburn).

I agree, the larger male face is Newman. Not sure about he smaller. Kennedy seems very unlikely (aside from jfk's assoc. with Monroe), and doesn't fit what seems to be a movie star theme...
