Hollywood glamour

Over the years we have seen many celebrities trying to channel that ‘old school’ Hollywood glamour look for their red carpet appearances. And, while some get it right, in my books they’ll never capture that same magic as some of the stylish starlets from the past.

Marilyn Monroe

Marilyn Monroe is by far one of the sexiest style icons in history and remains one of Hollywood’s most famous stars. Even now, nearly 60 years after her death, people are still fascinated by her – some mega-fans even resorting to plastic surgery to look like her. Others take a more ‘tame’ approach and either collect items once belonging to the troubled actress or by simply trying to copy her impeccable style.
