Marilyn Monroe must be one of the most recognizable and used faces in our culture. And although dead stars have been unnecessarily used in ads before, Monroe fits perfectly in Color Bar's "Become Someone" campaign promoting their make-up line. She is joined by none less than the legendary Elizabeth Taylor.
The print ads feature beautiful artistic paintings of both iconic females that were assumingly created using Color Bar products.
I give the art director Anirban Guha two thumbs ups for this campaign by Leo Burnett ad agency, Delhi, India.
