Over 50 years ago, Marilyn Monroe sang the now infamous "Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend." However, the style icon had more insights than many give her credit for. Sometimes dark and tumultuous, at others witty and lithe, Monroe had perspective on life, love, and style. Perhaps we should take to heart her appreciation for life and its trials, and that at the end of the day the only one you need to answer to is yourself. She said:
"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."
