Forever Favoring The Style Of The Iconic Marilyn Monroe

24 Jan


What would you call the style of some one who is imitated (but never duplicated) and idolized for past, present and future generations to come? Timeless, and that is exactly how I would best describe the style of Marilyn Monroe, who I, along with countless amount of people, will forever favor. Her image in the white halter dress is one that will always be ingrained in my mind. Probably the most famous pin-up, MM was stylish at every moment, whether on the beach, in front of the camera, or lying on the couch. Not to mention, she looked just as sexy in that iconic gold gown as she did in slim cropped pants and and a knit sweater. The photos of Marilyn taken over 50 years ago depict her fashion sense that is just as in-style today as they were then and I bet they will still be in 50 years from now and on. I truly believe MM put the GLAM in Hollywood Glamour. In addition to her signature blond hair, bombshell body, stunning good looks, dreamy bedroom eyes, and fascinating life story (that was sadly cut way too short), Marilyn Monroe will be loved and adored (in my books, if not in history’s) as one of the best dressed women of all time.

    Yes, it’s amazing how she still has an iconic status even amongst people of my generation. Ask me the name of another female film star from her time and I think the only one I remember is Jane Russell, and that only because she was in a Monroe film.
    Mind you, not many people can claim to have slept with a President and to have been the wife of one of the world’s greatest playwrights.

      Marilyn is definitely like no other, and I don’t think any one can say they lived a life like hers. Simply one of a kind.

    Marilyn is one of those fashion and style icons that will live forever. She was always entertaining. Cheers to Marilyn!

    It’s funny how things come about. I kid you not, just yesterday I found out from a good friend of mine that she is a huge Marilyn fan. If my friends and blog friends are talking about her, I suppose I should do some reading!

      If you do get familiarized with Marilyn, I don’t know how any one could not be a fan. Happy reading!

    I completely agree with everything you said here. Marilyn Monroe was gorgeous, and her fashion sense was out of this world.
