For decades, Marilyn Monroe has been one of the most inspirational style icons. Her legendary work has left not only the film and entertainment world in awe, but both the fashion and beauty worlds as well.
Eight days ago from today marks the 50th anniversary of major sex and fashion icon – Marilyn Monroe’s young and tragic death. Leaving her signature look of platinum blonde hair, red lips, the beauty mark and a curvy body as one of the most sought after and revolutional looks.
In honor of this style icon, here are some Marilyn-inspired-trends that will not fail you:
1. Red Lipstick: Bump up your confidence, because you’ll need some for this bold look. Applying red lipstick may be intimidating at first, but with this beauty trend, you’ll have the bombshell look down in no time.
2. Black Eyeliner & Mascara: To achieve those iconic Marilyn eyes, thicken and wing out your black eyeliner, then add a couple more coats of “blackest black” mascara.
3. Curve Hugging Attire: Ditch the sweats, and replace them with a form fitting curve hugging pencil skirt, sheath dress or plunging halter neckline. It’s all about showing off those beautiful curves!
Take a look around and it’ll become pretty clear that Monroe really left her mark. From hit-television shows such as Smash and Gossip Girl to countless modern fashion and pop icons such as Madonna, Monroe’s inspirational work of art is truly breathtaking and really everywhere you turn.
Other famous icons include Lady Gaga, Christina Augliera, Gwen Stefani, Rihanna and many more.
Now it’s your turn! We dare you to embrace your inner Marilyn.
I knew I belonged to the public and to the world, not because I was talented or even beautiful, but because I had never belonged to anything or anyone else. -Marilyn Monroe
