Marilyn Monroe is unarguably one of the most glamorous actresses ever to hit the silver screen. There is something about Marilyn that we simply cannot ignore. Till today, people are seen impersonating her at Hollywood nights, trying to mimic her fashion sensibilities, but no one coming even close to her grand persona. So, let’s take some style notes from the inimitable diva and try to find out what made her such a sensation?!
Embrace Your Shape
She may not be your typical diva with the perfect body, but she flaunted her curves proudly and wore flattering silhouettes without a care in the world. She never hid her body under shapeless knits, in fact, she believed there is no one perfect shape. If you have got the curves, own it and don’t care what the world has to say about your less-than-perfect shape. Her confidence in herself is exemplary and we can’t help but say, there is so much to learn from her, self-confidence being on top of the list.
Do gentlemen prefer blondes and blondes prefer diamonds? Well, we don’t have an answer to that question, but Marilyn admitted that she always found new places to wear diamonds. We may not be as lucky as her to nurture our love for the precious gems, but we should always embrace our love for the bling. You may not have the real deal, but why settle for one when you can have similar knockoffs. You don’t have to spend a million to look like a million bucks.
Develop Your Signature Style
Marilyn Monroe had her own signature style. When someone wears an elegant halter dress, we think of Marilyn right? We can say the same for pencil skirts and snug-fit cashmere sweaters, a simple yet chic attire that can never go wrong. You have to spend some time trying to figure out exactly what is your signature style. However, once you do, there is no looking back. Find your favorite color and make your wardrobe according to your them.
Red – the Bold and the Beautiful Color
Way back in the 1950s America, Marilyn made red lipstick a very popular color. The red lip color is always in fashion, and it can accentuate the look of any woman whether she’s a blonde, brunette, auburn, or sport any hair color. The vibrant color not only draws attention but clearly makes a bold statement.
When you wear red, ensure you do not overdo it. Ensure you keep your lips moisturized and blot out the extra red color with blotting paper to add a natural look to it. In fact, the bright red color can also make your teeth look white!
Enhance Your Beauty Mark
Marilyn Monroe started a beauty revolution as she found the perfect location of a beauty spot. This beauty mark which was located at the left side of Marilyn’s face went on to form the nearly perfect triangle with her nose and mouth. However, even if you do not have a natural one of your own, you can fake one. You can get your hands on a perfect beauty mark kit online and just use a brown pencil eyeliner to add your own beauty mark on the place you deem fit.
Once you find your perfect beauty spot, you will get used to the idea of sporting one each time you venture out. However, this is to each its own, if you like it well then you can go ahead and sport one, and if you do not like it, then just skip it. Do whatever makes you feel beautiful and confident.
The Peep Toe Style
Did you know that it was Marilyn who began this peep-toe shoe fashion? Marilyn in fact immortalized this toe-baring style, the one that made your toes stick out and take the center stage. You can wear it either as a sandal or a dignified pump, and Marilyn wore it most of the time. Once you find the perfect style then wear it as per your choice. Also, ensure your pretty toes are well manicured.
Marylin Monroe is a diva in her own right, whether it is on-screen or off-screen, she knew how to make a fashion statement every time she stepped out of her house with her effortless style.
