Marilyn Monroe has to be one of the most emulated and copied figures of Hollywood. Celebrities look back to her style and classic beauty as a standard for the red carpet. Many have even replicated old photo shoots of her.
I’ve put together a bunch of images of celebs rocking the Monroe. Who do you think did it best?
If you think you can do it better then these celebs, FrightCatalog has you stacked for your next Marilyn tribute. Don’t forget the red lipstick!

You guys keep asking how I do my the dreads in my hair and how I do the beads and how I keep the red in.
I’m going to make a video about all of that. It’s not as complicated as it looks.
Here are the steps to get you by before I air the tutorial:
1. Bleach the hair. Flash lightning kits 30 volume work best. Pick random piece of hair you want to be colored and bleach it til it turns the color of a banana peel.
2. Pravana CHROMASILK hair color. That’s the shit you use. I’m telling you. It LASTS and it’s cheap. And I like cheap.
Jack Sparrow Adult Scarf with Dreads: instant cara pirate. and it’s only temporary! Perhaps this is a better route?
3. Dreads? Take random hair from Claire’s or Hot Topic. The clip in stuff. I like it because it’s not real hair and it dreads after being washed a few times. I literally take the hair… and braid it into my own hair. That’s it! A simple braid! Secure with beads of your choice and elastics.
I wash my hair about once or twice a week. My hair doesn’t get oily or greasy looking. It looks bad when I wash it and looks good about the 4th day or so. That is just my hair type though. Everyone has different hair. You may need to wash it more or less depending.
Use SULFATE FREE shampoo because it helps the color last longer and keeps it brighter. I don’t wash the dreads but I scrub my scalp and roots and the shampoo and water runs through the dreads. I leave them in. They’ve been in for two years and counting. Good luck!
Devil Do Red Black Wig: Seriously- wigs are easily changeable and don’t do damage to your hair. Try this before you bleach and dye!
WARNING: This is a lot of damage to your hair. Seriously. Just try adding beads and braiding your Clip In extensions and just clip them in when you want them and take them out when you don’t. My dreads have been in so long that if I take them out I’ll be almost bald. You don’t want that. I used to use clip ins but then I realized I wanted them to be in 247 so I just sort of used metal wire and string to lock them in permanently. Dummy!
That’s the type of mood I am in today. As a result of this fantabulous mood… may I introduce you to a wonderful collection of items to blow.
