Style Icon: Marilyn Monroe









Source: google.com via Sunny on Pinterest



Continuing to remain one of Hollywood's most famous stars, Marilyn Monroe, has always been one of my favorite style icons. She is the ultimate symbol of femininity, Old Hollywood, glamorous good looks, and sex appeal. She did everything from wooing a president to appearing on the first cover of Playboy. Marilyn always celebrated her figure and her sensuality. She also managed to look alluring without dressing too revealing, instead often favoring, well cut figure flattering dresses, sweaters, and pencil skirts. Her influence in fashion and popular culture is immeasurable and she will forever be the ultimate blonde bombshell.

Don't forget to enter our giveaway for a beautiful personalized necklace designed by the lovely Sima Gilady.
