The enduring magic of Marilyn Monroe: As we mark half-a-century since the late star's death, her appeal has never been stronger





From last year's award-winning film My Week With Marilyn to glossy ad campaigns from Dior and Dolce & Gabbana, the actress's signature look is more relevant today than it was in her lifetime...





Only 11 years after her death, Elton John sang his ode to Marilyn Monroe. 'And I would have liked to have known you, but I was just a kid,' went the lyrics. 'Your candle burned out long before your legend ever did.'
What he didn't know at the time was how much truer his words would ring a few decades later.
Monroe passed away a half-century ago this Sunday, a murky death that remains one of Hollywood's most tantalizing mysteries. But look around: Her legend lives on, more vibrantly than ever. 
In a development this fiercely ambitious actress surely would have appreciated, the 1950's bombshell has become a 21st-century pop culture phenomenon.

Enduring appeal: Marilyn Monroe passed away a half-century ago this Sunday. But in the 50 years since her death, the 1950's bombshell has become a 21st-century pop culture phenomenon
Just flip through a celebrity magazine: Some of-the-moment young starlet or pop singer will be channelling (or outright appropriating) those platinum locks, the bright red lips, moist and slightly parted, and that joyously, almost defiantly curvy figure, sheathed in something skin-tight and glamorous.
Was that Marilyn on the red carpet at last year's Teen Choice Awards? No, it was Taylor Swift, wearing a white halter-style dress just like Marilyn's in The Seven Year Itch, in which the actress stood atop a subway grate and let the breeze of a passing train lift her skirts. (Oh, and that dress? It sold at auction last year for a mind-boggling $5.6million, including commission.)
 

Was that Marilyn in the Dolce & Gabbana ad a while back? No, it was Scarlett Johansson, all white-blonde hair and ruby lips. And there was Charlize Theron in a Dior ad last year, meeting up with the real Marilyn, not to mention Marlene Dietrich and Grace Kelly, via CGI. 
Magazine spreads have featured Nicole Kidman, Lindsay Lohan, Rihanna, Michelle Williams, Viola Davis and others having their Marilyn moment.

Madonna, of course, has famously appropriated Monroe's look into her image. So have singers Christina Aguilera and Gwen Stefani. 
In June, on what would have been Marilyn's 86th birthday, Lady Gaga tweeted 'Happy Birthday Marilyn - They'll never take our blonde hair and lipstick,' along with a picture of herself, Monroe-like. 
Nicki Minaj says she's 'obsessed with Marilyn Monroe.'
'Most women under 40 haven't seen her movies. For them, she's a style type - the ultimate hourglass figure. And a lot of women identify with that'
On the big screen, Miss Williams earned an Oscar nomination for her moving portrayal of Monroe in My Week With Marilyn. And one of TV's most popular new shows is Smash on NBC, which follows a Broadway musical based on Marilyn's life, with two actresses competing to play her.
Heck, there's even been a giant Marilyn traversing the country: A 26ft-tall, 34,000lb statue of the actress, white dress billowing and undies showing, by artist Seward Johnson, now resting in Palm Springs, California.
And there are plans for much more - thanks to the purchase in late 2010 of Monroe's estate, which includes among other things her name and image - by Authentic Brands Group and its partner, NECA.

The company's CEO, Jamie Salter, says he aims to upgrade the Marilyn brand by moving away from cheap souvenirs and developing Marilyn-themed cosmetic lines, spas and salons, sportswear, swimwear, footwear, handbags and more.
There are even plans for - wait for it - the inevitable Marilyn Monroe reality show, in which young women would compete to become a new Hollywood icon.

But just what is the secret of Marilyn's enduring appeal? It depends on whom you ask - and that's fitting, really, because Marilyn, more than other iconic celebrities, was different things to different people.
There was, most simply, Marilyn the actress - a Marilyn that often got lost in all the hype, despite her desperate aspirations to be taken seriously. Film historian Leonard Maltin laments that many people know Marilyn 'as an image and an icon', but not as an actress.
Monroe showed off her dramatic chops in The Misfits, for example, and Bus Stop. But she is probably best remembered for her delightful comic turns in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes as the gold-digging Lorelei Lee who sang Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend in that classic pink gown; as the sensuous but ditzy Girl in The Seven Year Itch; and as sexy band singer Sugar Kane in Some Like it Hot.
'Marilyn just leaps off the screen,' says Mr Maltin. 'She has a luminosity that transcends everything else.'
Still, an entire younger generation is enamored of her for something completely different, says Brandon Holley, editor in chief of Lucky magazine, which draws women in their 20s and 30s.
'I think most women under 40 haven't seen her movies,' Mr Holley says. 'For them, she's a style type - the ultimate hourglass figure. And a lot of women identify with that.'
Christopher Nickens agrees. 'Marilyn was the epitome of a certain kind of feminine ideal,' says the co-author of the recently released Marilyn in Fashion, a rare look at Monroe's influence in that field. 
Her key fashion legacy, he says, was to bring body-conscious clothes into everyday life, with elegance.
People gather around Seward Johnson's 26ft-tall sculpture of Marilyn Monroe, in her most famous wind-blown pose, on Michigan Avenue, in Chicago

Though she wasn't seen as a fashion icon during her lifetime, Mr Nickens thinks Marilyn shared something with other style icons like Jackie Kennedy, Grace Kelly, and Audrey Hepburn. 
'They didn't follow trends,' he says. 'It's about knowing yourself and what works for you, and having that confidence.'
Confidence isn't necessarily something one associates with Monroe, of course. In that Elton John song, Candle in the Wind, she's a beautiful innocent victimized by a terrible Hollywood machine - people who 'whispered into your brain' and 'set you on the treadmill' and 'made you change your name.'
Screen icon: The appeal of the star, pictured in 1953 in the film Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, has only got stronger with time

That falls into a familiar victim narrative about Monroe, who was indeed victimized as a young girl, according to multiple biographers. Born Norma Jeane Mortenson in 1926, she spent much of her childhood in foster homes, and there are allegations she suffered sexual abuse.
But a victim of Hollywood? Monroe's latest biographer, Lois Banner, begs to differ. She says Monroe the movie star 'was a constructed image' - one the actress herself worked very hard to invent, from the dyed hair (Norma Jeane was a brunette), to the make-up, that breathy voice, and the famous 'wiggle walk.'
And her dumb blonde screen image? Nothing like her, says Ms Banner, a professor of history and gender studies at the University of Southern California. 'She was extremely intelligent.'
But why has Marilyn's appeal only gotten stronger? 'First of all, she died very young,' says Ms Banner, freezing her image for eternity. But another reason is the existence of thousands of photographs of Marilyn, bursting with life. 
'She's conceivably the most photographed person of the 20th century,' says Banner. The author's third reason is more cynical: 'There's a lot of people making money off her,' she says.
Which brings us back to Mr Salter, whose company is also using social networking to court a young consumer base for the Marilyn brand.
On Facebook, Marilyn has three million-plus fans, 70per cent of them under the age of 24. She also has some 53,000 Twitter followers. 
Mr Salter's brand vision? 'To seduce the world with products that capture the iconic personality, style, glamour and elegance of the legendary actress,' according to the promotional materials.
'Look at what Marilyn was,' he says in a telephone interview. 'She's a total fashion icon. She invented the red carpet. She knew her brand.
'I've got the best model in the whole world.'

Behind the scenes of Burberry's atmospheric autumn/winter campaign starring Gabriella Wilde and Roo Panes






Burberry is continuing to create a buzz on social networking sites after embracing the power of social media to promote their Autumn/Winter campaign starring Roo Panes and Gabriella Wilde. Since images of the campaign have been released, the fashion house's Twitter and Facebook fans have rocketed whilst also raising Wilde and Panes's profiles.
Now the fashion brand have released behind the scenes pictures of their atmospheric shoot which was filmed at night by Mario Testino under the creative direction of Burberry's Christopher Bailey at the Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich London.
One of the pictures shows St Trinians actress Wilde in make-up as she prepares for her close-up. Another shows Testino and Bailey behind the camera as the glamorous shoot takes place.

Bailey said they were delighted with the resulting pictures and videos that were produced following their night of filming. He said: 'Using London as the backdrop, we shot the series of cinematic, emotive black and white images and short films with the incredibly talented Gabriella Wilde and Roo Panes, who effortlessly bring the campaign and our collections to life across all of our platforms.'
 

The resulting pictures and videos have been cleverly trickled out via social networking sites and Burberry's own website. Today, as well as the behind the scenes pictures, the fashion house also released more pictures of Wilde and Pane modelling clothes and accessories from their range with the titles 'the long wait' and 'footsteps and shadows'. A video called 'London Streets' has also just been released which is a continuation of previous short films starring Wilde and Panes in the classic old Hollywood movie style.

The campaign has been well-received with Burberry currently up to 13,180,946 likes on Facebook and 1,162,741 followers on Twitter.
As well as Facebook and Twitter, their cross platform campaign has also been sent directly to Burberry's fans on Burberry.com, YouTube, Google+, Instagram, Pinterest, Sina Weibo, Douban, Kaixin001 and Youku.

Thanks to the involvement of Panes, who can add singer-songwriter to his list of talents, Burberry have also released an official soundtrack on iTunes featuring Pane's songs which have also been used on some of the campaign videos. The latest 'London Streets' video however, which you can view below, uses British singer-songwriter Joan Armatrading's 'It Could Have Been Better' as the backing track.
Fans of Panes will hear more from him though as the Burberry campaign continues to be released while Wilde will be seen again on the big screen soon as she is to star in the remake of classic horror film Carrie, which will be out next year.

'I've learnt I'm in a very modern fairy tale. But I also know I don't need the Prince Charming to have a happy ending. I can make the happy ending myself.'
She continued: 'Being in love is the dream. But the reality of making it work is not like the movies.'
The raven-haired beauty also explained how she doesn't want feel the need to preach to her fans but hopes they follow her lead.
Speaking to Elle she said: 'I can't tell a person when it's time for them to have sex... or if they should have a cigarette... But I try to live my life with a lot of integrity... hopefully, that sends a message.'
In the interview, Katy added that she will remain a 'candy queen', but will make a change when she stops loving what she is doing.

Russell Brand recently went public with his new girlfriend Isabella Brewster when they were spotted sharing a kiss as they grabbed a bite to eat at a Greek restaurant in Los Angeles.
Despite the fact he has moved on from Perry, Brand recently described his marriage to the pop goddess as 'lovely'.

The funnyman spoke fondly but distantly of his ex-wife during a radio interview with Howard Stern two weeks ago, during which he also confirmed he is currently dating Isabella Brewster.
He said: ‘[Before] we got married, I just thought, “I’ve got to marry her, I love her so much.” And then we got married and I thought, “OK, this isn’t really working out.”’
However he insisted there are no bad feelings between him and Katy and explained: ‘It was a lovely relationship. It mostly didn't work for practical reasons and we went our separate ways.’

'I don't really want to talk to my mother about S&M': 50 Shades of Grey fan Victoria Beckham regrets recommending kinky read as she poses in racy briefs for Glamour






Victoria Beckham has revealed she's a fan of 50 Shades of Grey, the erotic fiction novel dubbed  'mummy porn'
The mother-of-four, who is married to handsome football sensation David Beckham, confessed she is already onto the steamy second installment of the three-part series, Fifty Shades Darker. 
The 38-year-old has also convinced her own mother, Jackie Adams, to read the books but she is too embarrassed to discuss their content with her.
She told the new issue of America's Glamour magazine: 'I'm halfway through the second one. I even bought my mum the book! But every time she tries to engage in conversation about it, I kind of dodge the subject.

'I don't really want to talk to my mother about S&M.'
As well as getting into a lather for the magazine's cover shoot - she slipped into in a bubble bath wearing a tiara - she also posed in just briefs and a orange lace top while standing in front of a well-stocked fridge.
 

In the frame, she is seen holding a milkshake, complete with whipped cream and a cherry on top, to her lips but given her lean frame and famously strict diet, it's rather unlikely she actually took a sip. 
In another shot, she models a dress from her own collection in an office while wearing a pair of black-rimmed reading glasses.

As well as modelling for the magazine, she also edited the prestigious September issue.
She said: 'It’s been exciting for me to see my ideas come to life, from type colors to photo selection to casting.
She even created her own list for the magazine's regular 'Don’ts' column: 'Boat shoes (unless of course you’re designer Alber Elbaz or on a boat!), Bermuda shorts, nose rings, Crocs, and American tan tights (that’s nude pantyhose to you).'
She also opened up about why she rarely smiles for photographers, saying it has become part of her image now she's a designer.

'I actually used to smile a lot in pictures. I think I only stopped smiling when I got into fashion. [Laughs.] Fashion stole my smile! I’ve created this person. And I’m not saying that’s not me, but I wouldn’t say that’s the whole me. It’s an armor that goes up.'
Victoria also revealed she is open to having another child to add to her brood, which already includes Brooklyn, 13, Romeo, nine, Cruz, seven, and 12-month-old Harper.
Asked where she sees herself in five years, she said: 'I'd like everybody to be healthy and happy. I'd like to be growing the business at a steady pace, and to be making more women feel empowered, beautiful, and confident.
'And I'd never say never about another baby. It's a juggling act - a career, family, a husband who's busy. But I'd never say never!'
