This year marks the 50th anniversary of the passing of Marilyn Monroe, who bid farewell to this world on Aug 5, 1962. Half a century later, her name, her glamour and her legend still live on.
Known for her sensual look, lush red lips and her signature white halter dress from the movie The Seven Year Itch, Monroe is the No.1 sex symbol of all time. For generations, she's been the epitome of beauty and glamour, playing the muse for fashion designers and make-up artists worldwide.
For example, this Halloween, MAC Pro artist Moises Ramirez has come up with six face charts inspired by famed stars and stories, including a Monroe look. Panpuri includes the sex icon into its Femme Fatale collection, featuring 10 scents inspired by 10 legendary ladies. Chanel No.5 was made famous when Monroe said, when asked about her night-time attire: "What do I wear in bed? Why, Chanel No.5, of course."
