One of My Favorite Icons: Marilyn Monroe


Marilyn Monroe continues to be one of the most celebrated and enduring icons of all time.  Today’s generation knows the face of Marilyn Monroe but do they know the story behind this complex actress who has inspired musicians, writers and artists.  In the fashion world, Monroe is one of the top fashion icons in the world…extraordinary considering this young actress had a short life.

I’ve read several books on Monroe and I am excited to see there’s finally a movie about her life coming out  this Thanksgiving.  The Weinstein Co. is proud to present “My Week with Marilyn”, based on the memoir of the same title written by Colin Clark.  “My Week With Marilyn” is a tale through the eyes of a young assistant to Laurence Olivier, Colin Clark, while on the set of Monroe and Olivier’s film, “The Prince and the Showgirl.”  Revolving around the tension between Olivier and Monroe and captivating the charm of seven special days Clark spent with the blond bombshell, “My Week with Marilyn” is sure to captivate audiences this holiday season.

The film stars Michelle Williams (“Blue Valentine”, “Shutter Island”, “Brokeback Mountain”) as the legend herself, along with Kenneth Branagh (“Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets”, “Hamlet”, “The Road to El Dorado”) as Sir Laurence Olivier and Eddie Redmayne (“The Other Boleyn Girl”, “The Yellow Handkerchief”, “The Good Shepherd”) as Colin Clark.

Are you a fan of Monroe’s wardrobe?  Here’s your chance to achieve Monroe’s expensive look for less.  UniqueVintage.com has a collection dedicated to the idol.  Take a look at the photos below, and then head over to the website to see how you can achieve your sleek and sexy look.
