Monroe is known as a symbol of glamour and has always been revered for her curvy shape. In these new photographs, she is wearing a short-sleeved dress and a pair of thick-rimmed cat-eye sunglasses, proving once again why she is the eternal fashion icon.

It’s always fun to get a new reminder of the first fashion icons. Maybe I’m alone here but I can almost see a little of Lady Gaga in these photos. Do you see it?

    I think Lady G pulls from many different icons. That is why she is popular. I really liked when Marilyn Monroe was more demure.

    I think any platinum blonde modern day “icon” is pulling inspiration from the original blonde, Marilyn Monroe. Nobody does bombshell quite like she!
