It was 1926 when, in a day of June, from the sky felt Norma Jeane Mortenson, one of the brightest star the world has ever knew, rare gem of Hollywood's golden age, icon of an era, loved, imitated and idolized by entire generations: the unforgettable Marilyn Monroe. Beautiful and fascinating, elegant in her sensuality, so lively but yet fragile, she enchanted the whole world with her talent, giving to it some of the most iconic movies of cinema history, from Niagara to Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, passing by The Seven Year Itch and Some Like It Hot. Her curves and her vulnerability, combined with the innocence of her angelic face, have helped to deliver the myth of Marilyn Monroe to eternity. Her style were so coded that it needs just a few elements to characterize it and make it immediately "hers": red lipstick, black eyeliner, porcelain skin and especially the unmistakeble platinum blonde bob. 52 years after her tragic and mysterious death, her legend is more alive than ever.
Happy birthday, Marilyn!
