50 Years On

There's no doubting that for the last 50 years the ICON that has become of Marilyn Monroe is a star that will not be falling. Women are in awe of her no apologies sexuality, the bold red lips and sultry eyes.  The times she isn't shy to show you she too can be vulnerable underneath all the jewels & make-up, her innocent laugh & equally infectious smile.

In the last 50 years we have seen numerous books, documentaries, TV & cinematic films, collectable dolls, exhibits, unseen photographs, clothes and so much more inspired by Marilyn.

MAC Cosmetics earlier this year unveiled plans of a Marilyn Monroe collection for the fall.

Her likeness was used alongside other memorable actresses from the 30s - 50s in the 2011 Dior perfume commercial starring Charlize Theron .

Marilyn has indeed had a influence on make-up.

I want to grow old without face lifts. I want to have the courage to be loyal to the face I have made.
― Marilyn Monroe
