Marilyn Monroe Is Brought Back To Life…
One of the world’s most iconic screen sirens may have died back in 1962, but did Marilyn Monroe ever really leave us? Monroe was an American actress, model, and singer, who became a major sex symbol, starring in a number of commercially successful motion pictures during the 1950s and early 1960s.
Christened Norma Jeane Baker, Monroe has always had a special place in my heart – I’ve read every book about her, watched all her movies and have always been infatuated with the haunting mystery that she held in her eyes. Yes, she was a blonde bombshell and looked the picture of ‘Hollywood’ donning her famous red pout and billowing white dress, but every now and then a photograph would capture her sadness, and I found myself intrigued and wanting to know more about her and what or who it was that sadly cut her life short. If I could bring one person back for just a day to ask them all my unanswered questions – I would certainly choose Marilyn.
Well, I may not have all my questions answer, however, it would seem the brand ‘Sexy Hair’ is just as infatuated with the actress. Monroe appears in a new series of ads for Sexy Hair, which has billed the ad campaign with the tagline, “Styles Change. Sexy is Forever.”
For Miss Monroe, “forever” is certainly not too far from the truth. As reported in the Huffington Post “Sexy Hair licensed the rights to Monroe’s name, quotes and image from Authentic Brands Group, which owns all the rights to her estate, and will be launching an extensive campaign come October”.
And so the iconic actress once again makes headlines. Following in the footsteps of Vanity Fair – for which she has graced many a cover, Christian Dior – who also harnessed the power of Monroe in the 2011 J’Adore Dior commercial starring Charlize Theron with a digitized Marilyn, Grace Kelly and Marlene Dietrich, Sexy Hair has also captured her timeless appeal.
So, what do you think of the new ads featuring Monroe? Do you feel sad that she is selling hair product? Or are you happy to see her star in her own campaign? Personally, as a huge Monroe fan, I think its fabulous and Miss M would be happy to still be winning leading roles in campaigns such as this…
