These 13 Vintage Photos Of Marilyn Monroe Are Party Season Gold

From her shock of platinum hair right down to her immaculately pedicured toes, Marilyn Monroe will forever be one of the world’s most beloved beauty icons. But her appeal only increases when party season hits: a time when bold lipstick, glamour and just the right amount of sass all come to the fore. Yes, Chanel No 5 was a must for her (the fragrance is famously the only thing she wore to bed), but she was also partial to a slick of rich, ruby-red lipstick to frame her dazzling smile, along with a classic feline flick. 

While being fabulous – party or not – was in Monroe’s bones, her ultimate beauty secret was an admirably simple one. “Most importantly, keep smiling,” she once said. “Because life is a beautiful thing and there’s so much to smile about.” Below, discover some of the original blonde bombshell’s best festive beauty looks to take inspiration from – smile very much included.
