Marilyn Monroe - My favourite Movie Icon

 MAC Marilyn Monroe LE Release Fall 2012
I just came across MAC's announcement of their new Marilyn Monroe LE release which is planned for October in the US and Europe- YEAH. What a brilliant idea, have no clue why they didnt't came up with that before. I am a huge Marilyn fan she is probably the truest beauty icon I can think of. If you scroll down you can see a list with the names of the Collection. I know my bank account won't be too happy about my spendings in October, wah sooo excited, besides Diamonds mac products are a girl's best friend! :-D
As suspected, the collection consists of lots of red hues for lips and nails, beige and grey eyeshadows, subtle blushes and eyebrow products. 
Reading those news I came up with the idea sharing my Marilyn Monroe shooting pics with you that were taken a couple years ago. It was a lot of fun taking those pics and I love sliping into different roles. Kinda interesting what clothes and make up can make a difference. I hope you like my interpretation of Marilyn's look. What did you love most about Marilyn?
