Marilyn Monroe costume

One of the most iconic of all characters, Born in Los Angeles in 1926 as Norma Jeanne Mortenson. Monroe played ditzy blondes in her films but in reality was a style icon who has inspired everyone from Madonna, to fashion designers and artists. One of the reasons everyone loves Marilyn is her honest attitude and classic quotes, such as: “I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.” – Marilyn Monroe
