In 1955, Marilyn Monroe appeared at the premiere night of the Ringling Bros., Barnum & Bailey Circus at Madison Square Garden. In circus finery, Monroe garnered all her glamour and took the turns in the Grand March astride Kinardy, an Indian elephant painted pink for the event. The special performance would benefit the New York Arthritis and Rheumatism Foundation. 

Take a look at the eye-catching girl that night through 16 stunning vintage photographs below:
