Ever Wondered What Marilyn Monroe Would Look Like With A Neck Tattoo?

Marilyn Monroe With Tattoos

Seattle artist Cheyenne Randall is the mastermind behind my new favorite Tumblr, Shopped Tattoos, where he adorns legendary photos with amazingly realistic body art. My favorite images are the vintage photos (I seriously cannot stop staring at that Marilyn pic), but I must admit, the inked up and hipster-ized version of Will and Kate is pretty fantastic too.

Marilyn Monroe Sexy Hair Ad

Affordable haircare brand Sexy Hair just unveiled its fall ad campaign, and it turns out the new face of the company isn’t exactly new. It’s Marilyn Monroe. Sexy Hair purchased the rights to images and quotes from Monroe’s estate to create ads for its Spray & Play hairspray, which Monroe herself obviously never used (a partnership with Aqua Net probably would have been more accurate). The ads, which employ the tagline “Styles change. Sexy is forever.” are definitely eye-catching, and Sexy Hair is far from the first company to use Monroe’s image to shill products: MAC released a Monroe-inspired collection last year, and the year before that, Dior used some high-tech trickery to have Monroe star alongside Charlize Theron in a TV commercial. Not to mention the endless celebs who take it upon themselves to impersonate the Hollywood legend (with varying degrees of success).

So what do you guys think of these new ads? At first I thought the whole thing was a little weird/inappropriate, but as a slightly obsessive Marilyn fan with very little will power, I must admit after looking at the photos for a few minutes, I found myself wanting to buy a can of this hair spray (I’m a sheep, I know).

Revealed: Why Marilyn Monroe Posed Nude

A new memoir reveals that it was simple jealousy of Elizabeth Taylor that spurred Marilyn Monroe to pose nude. Monroe agreed to be naked while exiting a swimming pool during a photo shoot, as long as Taylor did not appear in any magazines running the images, reports Vanity Fair, which is publishing the images in this month’s edition. (While Monroe made just $100,000 for her final film role in “Something’s Gotta Give,” Taylor pulled down $1 million in “Cleopatra.”) But the nude pictures weren’t the only place Monroe bared all. A smattering of her conversations with photographer Lawrence Schiller, as per his memoir Marilyn & Me … Read more!
