Marilyn Monroe died 49 years ago, but she still inspires women the world over. From Megan Fox having Monroe’s face tattooed on her arm (which is now in the process of being removed) to Lindsay Lohan naming her legging line “6126″ (Monroe was born on June 1, 1926), Monroe’s influence is more vast than other stars of her time – even Audrey Hepburn doesn’t garner as much idolatry. And if you’re a young celebrity in Hollywood, there’s usually a magazine or photographer who wants to do a “Marilyn Monroe shoot.” I think Lohan’s on her fourth; Hugh Hefner decided her reshoot for Playboy would be inspired by an early Monroe session for the magazine. Inside, check out the many Monroe-inspired photoshoots.
My Week with Marilyn was originally supposed to be released last weekend, but now won’t be released until November 23rd. Until then, we’ll have to wait to see if Michelle Williams can really embody the icon.
What do you think, Lovelies? Who gets the essence of Monroe the most right? What does the legendary Monroe mean to you in this day and age?
