Marilyn Monroe has been an iconic figure in pop culture and a sex symbol for most of the world since her entrance into the mass media through movies and Hollywood. There isn’t much of the star’s body that couldn’t be considered iconic. It is then no surprise that her lips are voted thumbs up for a beauty trend.
Los Angeles: Marking its Golden Jubilee celebration, the beauty and health retailer ‘Superdrug’ has conducted a poll to find out the top five iconic beauties across the globe. Marilyn Monroe’s red bold lips have been voted the most iconic beauty trend of all time with the sultry smoky eye trailing next.
About 2000 women participated in the poll. Monroe was an American actress, model, singer and film producer who has featured in a vast number of commercially successful movies during 1950 and early 1960s.
She was titled as the Film’s sexiest women of all time by the TV Guide Network in 2009.
The designation as the second most iconic beauty look was the classic dark, smoky eyes given to singer Cheryl Cole and socialite Kim Kardashian.
In the third spot was a TV personality Sam Faiers followed by designer Victoria Beckham and actress Twiggy in the fourth and fifth place respectively.
The director of Superdrug, Simon Comins, said, “In recent history there have been some really iconic beauty trends. The fact that some trends have come and gone, and then come back again shows that beauty trends are as cyclical as fashion, and they have all been sported by the famous faces of the day.”
“The research also shows that the power of a fabulous red lip remains one of women’s favorite and most dramatic beauty looks,” Comins added.
This study revealed that nearly half of the woman opines that the new trends in fashion and make up arises from celebrities and nearly one in every five women has copied an iconic look from the famous faces.
Around two third of the women wished that they were more brave as regards experimenting with new looks while typical women were satisfied just trying three to four iconic looks over their lifetime.
How much talent Marilyn had as an actress is up for debate, but playing tootsie-foot with no less than the President of the United States and his brother, and the mystery surrounding her death, make Monroe a conversation piece into the 21st century. There seems to be no limit to the interest of this iconic sex symbol.

Zingerman’s Take A ‘Zing’ In The Movie ‘Five Year Engagement’ – An Open Letter To Zingermans – By Andrew Robertson
Subject: The Movie ‘Five Year Engagement’ Dear Zingermans; I’m surprised you allowed Judd Apatow to use your good name (and facilities) in his very unfunny movie which depicts Michigan in an extremely unflattering light. The actors playing Zingerman’s employees in the movie were disgusting both in their appearance and their handling of food. The movie was so [...]

I went to see the movie ‘JOBS’ yesterday with two of my children. It was a matinee showing during a weekday so we were 3 of 12 in the theatre at showtime. The movie has something for everyone; sex – drugs – and rock and roll. Oh yea, there’s some technology, power struggles, back-stabbing and [...]
NOTE: I HAVE NEVER WRITTEN ANYTHING LIKE THIS REGARDING ANY POLITICIAN. You might find this “junk” but you might not. My thoughts follow. Aloha, Dan Inouye. With your even keel, your Robert Mitchum voice (in my opinion) and your steady facial expressions (free of quirks – you had nothing to hide) were a Medal of [...]
Each Thanksgiving for the past several years, I have made a holiday Cranberry sauce. In the Mid-Western part of the United States the tradition of Thanksgiving is closely related to not only what blessings have been granted over the year, but what foods will be consumed on this day of feasting. This years sauce is [...]
I was at the Detroit Madonna concert on November 8, 2012, and witnessed her getting booed off the stage when she made Pro-Obama statements – (http://www.freep.com/article/20121109/ENT04/121109002/Madonna-concert-Detroit-Obama-politics). It was startling to see Madonna booed so strongly at her concert, in her home town, in a Democratic state that supposedly voted for Obama… What was more startling [...]
