Remembering Marilyn Monroe's Fashion Legacy

On what would have been her 92nd birthday, L'Officiel pays homage to the Hollywood fashion icon who passed away in 1952.

Born as Norma Jean Mortenson on June 1, 1926, in the city of Los Angeles, California, the Hollywood icon would've turned 93 years old today.  

Growing up in a series of foster homes and orphanages, America's favourite blonde left a legacy as one of the most recognisable faces in the entertainment industry decades after her death. Starring in 'Some Like It Hot' to 'The Seven Year Itch' and 'Gentlemen Prefer Blondes', Monroe proved herself to be the quintessential blonde bombshell during her era.

We look back through photographs of Marilyn as a fashion influencer, visionary and individual, whose impact inspired many in the fashion world.
