Marilyn Monroe with glossy red lips

Marilyn Monroe brings the movie-star glamour, or attempts to, in this undated color photograph by Ronald Grant. Marilyn Monroe's blonde hair, lush lips and unmissable beauty mark (that is, mole) were considered the epitome of Hollywood sex appeal back in the day. She was born in 1926 and died at the young age of 36 in 1962.
