75 Marilyn Monroe Tributes

From Classic Hollywood Collages to Androgynous Icon Makeovers

— September 19, 2011 — Fashion
In light of the upcoming release of Simon Curtis' film 'My Week with Marilyn,' there's no better time than now to revisit the mesmerizing looks and influence of pop culture and fashion icon Marilyn Monroe. Throughout the years, an incredible number of pop stars and actresses have sported looks that emulate Norma Jean, from Christina Aguilera to male model Andrej Pejic, with the latest being Michelle Williams, the star of the 2011 Monroe biopic.

Known as much for her often-scandalous relationships and lifestyle as for her films, Monroe definitely left a mark on the entertainment, fashion and even art worlds. Immortalized in the work of Andy Warhol and other artists, Monroe has inspired a seemingly limitless array of products available to fans, from voluptuous shapely dressers to skateboard decks.

For a look back at the blonde bombshell's life and work, check out these quirky, creative and moving Marilyn Monroe tributes.
