Dress Like an Icon...Marilyn Monroe


Wow two Marilyn posts in one week, I must be developing an obsession.
As you can probably tell, I also quite like Marilyn Monroe. Despite all of the glitz and glamour, Marilyn's personal style was actually quite simple. None of this wearing outlandish outfits just to hit the grocery store (*cough* Rihanna *cough*). But if you feel like dressing up a little, and need some inspiration from one of the most beautiful, stylish and iconic women in history, then look no further for help...

Oh i just looked at your other post about Marilyn. It's so shocking to see so many skinny role models these days.. and when you look at Marilyn and her curves.. wow our generation has changed in so many bad ways ;/
It's great to see women celebrating their curves!!

hi Romany


beautiful white i like the combination of black and white

So many years back a great actor is dead that is Marilyn Monroe
still we are talking about her

that is popularity

Think about your future i wish you must also get like that popularity in any field
hope in future people tell your name like Monroe

people dies but their name wont die

if i said anything wrong just forget my words

have a great day

Just watched a MM film this weekend and was absolutely smitten by the way she wears her clothes. There was certainly something about her...

I love Marilyn too she has such great effortless style. When it comes too Rihanna I am just like arrggghhh... what are you doing I mean I am unsure if she's doing it just to say 'hey, I am an individual' but its getting annoying.

ive actually never seen a marilyn flick before...

its odd, from her photographs, i dont find her all that beautiful but there is something unbelievably sexy, charming, seductive about her and the way she smiles.. and of course that body! love women with hourglass figures like hers
