I Want to Be Like Marilyn!

I love Marilyn Monroe and have a huge painting of her in my bathroom (see it here). What many people don't realize is that "Marilyn Monroe" was a media produced persona. Norma Jeane Baker was not only an actress by profession, but lived her everyday life in the spotlight as someone else. According to her acting coach, even her voice was fabricated. It's one of the reasons why I appreciated Michelle Williams' portrayal in "My Week With Marilyn" because of her humanistic performance.

My favorite Marilyn Monroe movie was "How to Marry a Millionaire" because Marilyn was super cute in it. She was beautiful in so many ways, but I picked out some of the glam takeaways I want to incorporate in my beauty routine soon (and even included an informative video that not only breaks down her iconic look, but details of her rich life). Take a look below!
