Marilyn Monroe

Lipstick Wardrobe

Most Starlets would feel naked without lipstick.  Most glamour girls have a signature lip color they love, but it’s important to have a lipstick wardrobe so that you are prepared for any occasion.

Outfit Inspired by Marilyn Monroe in Denim

Denim is not usually a Starlet’s first fashion choice. However, when worn fitted, cuffed and with a classic white shirt it can be a chic casual choice.  No one rocked denim like Marilyn Monroe.  So I grabbed my jean by The Limited, a classic white shirt by New York & Co (also seen here in this Elizabeth Taylor inspired look), and my Forever 21 boots and tried to recreate some of Marilyn’s classic looks.

Hot Dogs and Champagne with How To Marry a Millionaire

There is one person a Starlet values above all else.  A person she tells all her deepest secrets and a person she entrusts with her most valuable asset… her hair.  I am, of course, talking about her hairdresser.  A true Starlet does not settle for just any stylist.  She searches for the perfect match, and she considers her hairdresser her partner in creating her look.
