15 ways to live like Marilyn Monroe in 2020
I stumbled upon this carbon copy of a receipt. Marilyn requested 12 splits of Dom Perignon 1953Champagne to be delivered to Marilyn Monroe at The Beverly Hills Hotel, Bungalow 21.
2. Wear Chanel No 5.
Marilyn Monroe’s favorite perfume was Chanel no. 5
3. Eat Romanoff inspired chocolate souffle.
Marilyn Monroe was reportedly fascinated by the chocolate souffle served at this swanky Beverly Hills restaurant. Now defunct, the glittering restaurant was once a haven for Hollywood stars of yesteryear. Pictured here is a party celebrating The Seven Year Itch that was hosted there.
4.What vintage movies.
Charlie Chaplin: She reportedly loved Charlie Chaplin films (not surprising considering she dated his son!), and Clark Gable and Marlon Brando were two of her other favorite actors.
5. Read Ulysses.
Marilyn reading Ulysses was a famous photo… was it all staged, or was it the book her favorite? I am not sure. But I do believe she loved to read…she had a rather extensive library.
6. Buy yourself some roses.
Her ex-husband Joe DiMaggio was well aware of Marilyn’s love of roses. So much so that he staged a rather elaborate token of love that continued to her grave. He made sure that a dozen long-stemmed roses were delivered to her grave twice a week at Westwood Memorial Park.
7.Wear Salvatore Ferragamo.
Salvatore Ferragamo made Marilyn’s favorite pair of shoes. They were featured at an exhibit at the London Design Center.
8. Wear Nivea and Vaseline.
9. Collect vintage art prints.
Marilyn Monroe’s favorite artists were Botticelli, El Greco, Goya, Michelangelo, and Picasso.
10. Listen to Frank Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald.
11. Eat Tootsie Rolls.
12. Drink warm milk with eggs for breakfast.
13. Wear Erno Lazlo.
14. Wear red lipstick.
15. Wear simple separates.
