65 Marilyn Monroe-Inspired Captures

The Cannes Film Festival 2012 Honors Her Iconic Influence

— May 18, 2012 — Pop Culture
The Cannes Film Festival 2012 pays tribute to Marilyn Monroe's influential past as her picturesque pout graces the festival's official poster. It will have been 50 years since the tragic death of the young starlet and the 65th anniversary of the French film festival. Her graceful grin welcomes the likes of Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Nicole Kidman and Brad Pitt to the Cannes red carpet.

There are only a handful of stars capable of influencing and capturing the hearts of countless generations. Marilyn Monroe has been a source of inspiration for fashion, art, music and pop culture. Her seductive smile, bombshell blonde locks and perfectly puckered lips are envied and echoed by adoring fans and celebs alike.

The Cannes Film Festival 2012 honors prestigious stars from across the globe to celebrate the icons of the industry. These Marilyn Monroe-inspired photoshoots indicate that despite her passing, the celebrated household name has maintained an influential presence in fashion and photography.
