She died almost 50 years ago, but her popularity and fame is not debatable. Actually, what makes her so difficult to be replaced?
Christina Aguilera’s new look is golden blonde hair and Marilyn Monroe’s make up as her signature style. Madonna looked all glamorous with a pink Marilyn Monroe style strapless gown in the video clip “Material Girl”. So many people wrote a book of a story about an actress who died at the age of 36 years, it’s like her story is endless. Why is she so attractive?
She was born as Norma Jeane Baker and considered as a woman who has everything, but it turned out that behind all the glitz and sparks, she is fragile and did not have anything.
“She died in a little bungalow, in a cluttered room, bombed out of her mind on pills and unhappiness, and I think people identify with that,” said David Gainsborough Roberts who’s admiring Marilyn Monroe and a collector of all things Marilyn Monroe.
Biographer “The Final Years of Marilyn Monroe: The Shocking True Story”, Keith Badman, also adding that the appeal can be radiated by the stronger Monroe thanks to her beautiful image, cheerful and sexy personality that she maintained perfectly. Monroe died when she was still very beautiful, nobody will ever imagine or think of how she would look like when she gets old and has wrinkles. So in your mind, Monroe stays young and beautiful.
“Her image is forever locked in that beauty. We will never find a picture of her looking old or past her prime. She was an exceptionally beautiful woman and she died very young,” Badman said.
What comes to your mind when you hear her name? Bedroom eyes? Blonde wavy hair? Diamonds and heels? Pointed brows? Open mouthed smile? Pouty red lips? That beauty mark above her upper lip?
For me, it’s how she dressed up. She knew what looked great on her and she could show off her figure whilst maintaining her modesty.
What are her colors? Marilyn wore beige, black, cream, red, white, and mostly champagne colors. Her favorite store was Bloomingdales, her favorite designer was Emilio Pucci, and her favorite shoe designer was Salvatore Ferragamo.
