20 Stunning Vintage Photos Of Marilyn Monroe

Happy birthday, Marilyn Monroe! Today, June 1, would have been the original Hollywood bombshell's 90th birthday, and we want to celebrate.

As the story goes, back in 1945 a photographer snapped a photo of a brunette named Norma Jeane at the factory where she was working. Months later she became a successful model, appearing on magazine covers and securing a screen test with 20th Century Fox. By the end of 1946, her hair was changed from brown to platinum blond, and Marilyn Monroe was born.

To us, Monroe represents the ultimate sex symbol, with killer curves and a a luscious pout. And we can't forget about her sexy and feminine style. Marilyn is no doubt a style icon whose signature look has been copied for decades. So on this day, we're paying tribute to Marilyn, Hollywood's most bodacious bombshell.

Have a look through the gallery to check out some stunning vintage photos of the actress and perhaps take a little inspiration for your summer outfits.
