The famous skirt flair, that blonde hair & winged eyeliners, the bikini shots & witty quips, that body confidence, and nonchalant attitude is what marks and make the truest DIVA of our generation – Marilyn Monroe.
On her birthday, we celebrate the Diva, her contribution to fashion and the bad-ass attitude with which she set the tone for women power for generations to come.
Here’s are Marilyn Monroe in her iconic looks and some of wittiest excerpts:
“I don’t mind living in a man’s world as long as I can be a woman in it”.
“Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.”
“A wise girl knows her limits, a smart girl knows that she has none.”
“It is better to be hated for what you are than to be loved for what you are not.”
“I only know I want to be wonderful.”
“Always, always, always believe in yourself. Because if you don’t then who will, sweetie?”
“Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.”
“Sometimes you just have to throw on a crown and remind them who they’re dealing with.”
“To all the girls that think you’re fat – because you’re not a size zero you’re the beautiful one. It’s society who’s ugly.”
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BEAUTIFUL!
