F*ck Unicorns — We Want Makeup Revolution's New "Dragon" Highlighter

I took a film class on Marilyn and I learned some interesting facts, such as in the beginning she did have more dramatic 'strong' sexy roles (ie femme fatale) but the studios didn't want to market her into that niche and so played her up as the vulnerable, nonthreatening sexy that was to become her 'image'. If you want to see her in a film noir as a femme fatale check out 'Niagara'-she has some fab outfits in it too!!

She's lovely. She may have not been a size 12 these days but she was a size 6 which is a lot larger than the size 0 stars of today. I agree PJPJPJ!

I've always loved to see pictures, movies, & footage of her. I wish people would get back to glamorizing figures that are the same size as hers....real figures that are normal sized & healthy.

i've never been a fan but i do think she's a culture icon and think it's sad the way she died.

Nicely worded Tnkrbelli. My dad's wife is obsessed with MM's life and that is how I became interested in her life because off the screen, she had a lot going on in her personal life, just like anyone else but she was still able to shine. A sad story. Not everyone loved her in her day though, certian fellow actors couldn't stand working with her.

A compliment that I treasure to this day is when a woman came up to me and said that I was lucky because I had a Marilyn Monroe figure. I think if Marilyn had lived longer she would have been able to break into dramatic roles. She was great in The Misfits.

Megmccoy, actually Marilyn never claimed to be the first blonde bombshell and her idol was Jean Harlow--they had so many similarities in their lives, including the same hair stylist (who dyed Marilyn that platinum blonde). But Marilyn actually met Jean Harlow's mom and her mother said she was a carbon copy of her daughter Jean. I think the reason she made such an impact on people is because it was a personal impact, she touched people in different I don't like her because everyone else does---I like her because I relate to her personally! I also can't keep my eyes off of her when she's on if she doesn't touch you personally than you're one of the few. ;)

Don't forget there would be no Anna Nicole as we knew her without MM as well. Marilyn has always fascinated me, and I think you summarized it so nicely- beautiful, intriguing and yet so vulnerable. Very tragic indeed but such an influence. Thanks for the lovely gallery of photos.

sorry i know you're all going to get mad but i think she's really overstated. perhaps because of her abrupt death? dunno...

I love Marilyn! I'm reading a book about her right now in fact.

She's such a SAD mysticism, and I've always been drawn to her, but always a little skeptical about her real impact. While she did a lot to own it, she didn't invent the platinum look, and I think Gwen Stefani has cited older movie stars like Jean Harlow as her primary influence. I absolutely love Mae West, who is more the early day Madonna than Marilyn, where Marilyn was soft and played dumb where Mae West was sharp and powerful in the sexiness...

Yeah, size 12 isn't what it used to be! A "size 12" in Marilyn Monroe's day would be equivalent to about a size 6 now!
