The diva of yesteryears and Playboy’s favourite back then, Marilyn Monroe left too young? An inspiration for sure, Marilyn Monroe stirred the silver screen with her unique abilities in acting and the sassiest of skills as well. Marilyn was a lady who cared two hoots about what the media would write about her, especially about her flings and her sense of ‘bare-it-all’ style. She didn’t bother at all about what the tabloids spoke of her, when she graced many a red-carpet fanfare and occasions. While her counterparts burned green with jealousy and envy, Marilyn left no stone unturned to make heads turn around and grab a look!
Here are ten trendiest haute couture looks of Marilyn Monroe to try, as a tribute to the legend that once was!
