Marilyn Monroe as Lorelei Lee from Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend)
One name comes to mind when iconic stars are mentioned, and that is – Marilyn. Pin-up model, singer and actress, Marilyn Monroe became the very definition of sex appeal to people all across the globe. Her distinctive platinum blonde curls made her stand out wherever she went and her public profile became greater than her on-screen roles. One of her most memorable roles was as Lorelei Lee in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. “Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend” is the most famous number from this musical comedy and Marilyn’s shocking pink dress and dripping with diamonds look was famously recreated by Madonna in her “Material Girl” music video.
