Sixty years after the death of an icon, and an icon she remains. Marilyn Monroe to this day inspires millions of people and continues to influence beauty, fashion, art, and film to no end. She is an emblem of new age glamour, breaking the mould of long-standing body ideals with her signature curves.
Marking the anniversary of Marilyn’s death, new films and documentaries are being released this year to illustrate the extravagant and mysterious life of this megastar. With top Hollywood actresses stepping into the role (we’re excited to see Bond girl Ana De Armas take the lead in Netflix’s Blonde) we’re curious to see each portrayal of such a poignant character.
It may seem like an easy feat, depicting a person with so many mannerisms, quotes, outfits, and beauty looks that are so distinctively “her”, but in reality, her complexity and level of fame and familiarity among multiple generations of people make it an incredibly intricate part with absurdly high expectations. Everyone thinks they know her from the image the media has fed us over the years – the character presented to the world. But there is so much more to her personality and her accompanying persona than the public really know. We cannot wait to explore the truth of the individual she was underneath it all.
