Marilyn Monroe: Most notorious style Icon of all time!August 7, 2012
It’s been 50 years this week since her tragic and widely controversial death on August 5 1962, and fabMom thought it only necessary to do a little “tribute” write-up about History’s most notorious fashion butterfly. That said; I am not going to give you a history lesson on the life and death of Marilyn Monroe, in fact if you do a little search, with very little effort, you’ll find all there is to know about her. However as a fashion blogger it was only a matter of time before I was going to mention our beloved Ms Monroe…after all, the fashion and beauty world would certainly miss a huge chunk in the pie if not for the legacy Marilyn left behind. So for that I commend the only woman I know, able to make a flying dress look so sexy. May we continue to ‘pout our lips’ in appreciation of her large contribution to the industry.
True, she may not have been the most talented actress of her time, yet her movies made millions. She may not have been the luckiest in love, but she dated of the world’s most famous men and even went on to marry some of them. Neither did she have a pleasant upbringing, but Marilyn Monroe rose above all that and with her electrifying confidence, sexy wit and incredible beauty, became the world’s most loved style-icon. And today, half a century after her death, she is still considered the very core of beauty personified.
So, In remembrance I’ve selected some of my fave Monroe pics…
