Everlasting Star Community _ General Discussion _ Mm Inspired Photo Shoots

Posted by: californiadude Apr 10 2006, 02:22 AM

I know this topic has been posted a lot, and I mean a lot! but it hasn't been posted in a while and I know there are some new photo shoots out there and I havn't seen some of these photo's in previous threads.

To start off the thread, I'll post a picture of Lindsay Lohan doing some Marilyn 'inspired' photo's. I think Lindsay looks great and she's already said she's a huge fan of Marilyn!

"I have pictures of Marilyn everywhere. I used to study her by watching her films. I think she is one of the most incredible actresses."

"I feel connected with to what all she went through-she was so beautiful but such a good actress, too. A lot of people couldn't see beyond the hype and realize that she was really talented."

"I still worship Ann-Margret. She is so sexy. It's my dream to be able to remake her movie Kitten With a Whip. If I could remake some of Marilyn's movies, I'd start with Niagara."

I'd love to see Lindsay in a movie playing Marilyn, I think she's such a talented actress!
If I find any more pictures I'll post, but if you guys have any Marilyn 'inspired' pictures that might not have been posted before, I'd like to see them.

I have these from the Vanity Fair shoot.

Lindsey looks more like Bridget Bardot to me!

Posted by: californiadude Apr 17 2006, 12:59 AM

She did a photoshoot that was similar to a Bridget Bardot photoshoot, but although she doesn't look like Marilyn, I like the fact that she looks up to and admires Marilyn, you know that she's a fan.

What is Lindsay Lohan famous for? Stick anyone on a beach and it could be Marilyn inspired eh.

Posted by: LostHurlyFan Apr 18 2006, 07:20 PM

Thats just what I was thinking Fav. Although I have to say Lindsy looks healthy there at least? I have seen pictures of her looking rather sickly because she seems to be not eating. Someone please throw her a cheeseburger. tongue.gif

I just think nobody can look anything close to what Marilyn did, she was so personal!!!!!
there are many girls with better bodies, more beautiful faces,whatever you want!! But
nobody with such huge sex-appeal , magic, whatever, like Marilyn Monroe. She was
the one and only Marilyn Monroe,and the great thing about her is the huge, unbeliavable
wonderful character she created , named:Marilyn Monroe.

Though imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

Posted by: melslovepotion Apr 26 2006, 11:36 PM

Ok it is kind of annoying now. I dont mind celebrities being fans of Marilyn but some celebrities go over the top. There is a big difference of Christina Aguilera liking her and getting inspired and Anna Nicole who tries to act like her and badly at that. Marilyn did not do all those over the top setrotypical things yeah she had a soft voice but not a breathy so over the top thing. It seems like some celebrities did not do their research on her -like they just saw her and went wow shes beautiful let me do that. Not to be mean its great to see the new generation loving Marilyn unfortantly comes the people like Anna and Madonna.Lindsey I am on the fence about I know she reads about Marilyn but she is starting to blow kisses every where she goes and try to to and act like her and people telling she looks like her is getting to her head a bit, just be your self -Marilyn was. She was truly one of a kind.

Posted by: californiadude Apr 27 2006, 06:44 AM

Yeah, I agree. But I think that Lindsay was just being a fan I guess, so she dyed her hair blonde and maybe to be like Marilyn (though I heard it was for a role) but if you look at Lindsay now her hair is back to it's natural colour (RED) and she's looking very heathly so she's doing her own thing now and not trying to be another Marilyn Monroe wannabee but she's just being Lindsay Lohan.

Posted by: melslovepotion Apr 27 2006, 03:15 PM

That is true, I just dont want her to think yeah all these people said I looked like Marilyn Monroe let me look her up and tell everyone she is my idol just based on that. People said I looked like Marilyn and my mom has been told that but I dont try I just am, plus Marilyn has so many looks I think there is always a little Marilyn in all of us. I seen people that remind me of her and the fans because they have that little spark in them. So lets hope Lindsay is a good Marilyn supporter in the future biggrin.gif

Charlize Theron posing as Marilyn. I'm impressed; she looks just like her, aside from the eyebrows. marilynbybrandon_190.gif

Ex-Spice Girl Geri Halliwell posed for Glamour magazine, in 2004 , this photoshoot was inspired by Merelyn. Geri is a big Merelyn fan, so there some other photos of her in Merelyn style...

Oh dear lordy those Geri ones are pretty embarassing. She looks like she doesn't want to be there.

I think these are quite new Marilyn inspired pics of Charlize Theron.


Janice Dickinson and Christina Aguilera

A few comparisons I found...






 

Posted by: Darling May 25 2006, 08:23 AM

What about this: Christina Aguilera in GQ. Try as she may she will never have the class that Marilyn did...


I'm sorry but unless you're an impersonator, this is kinda sickening and INSULTING. But I digress...
THERE WILL NEVER BE another Marilyn, these people should stop trying...its LAME

Posted by: Tiina May 25 2006, 03:40 PM

I don't like those pictures either.
Christina is trying too much, she's looking too sexy.

Everybody who tries to pose like Marilyn has got the same problem, they don't look natural.
Even if Marilyn posed nude, she still looked sophisticated and relaxed.

I can't find any diamonds photos(although I've seen tons of them) but here's a stern inspired one.

i think kate is very beautiful she has very unique features.

another christina pic.

 

Posted by: Robby Sep 16 2006, 02:22 PM

I don't really think Anna Nicole Smith looks like Marilyn, I think her face is too rough, Marilyn's face was beautiful (You can't disagree about that one), but I don't really like Anna Nicole when she tries to pose like Marilyn, it's too vulgar for me.

Posted by: rose Sep 16 2006, 03:25 PM

Madonna always brings something about her own inner strenght in photos where she inspired by Marilyn.Absolutely wonderful,strongs woman.

Kate Moss photos surprised me.She is very chameleon-type.Can make anything from her face and expressions.

Anna Nicole Smith is so naive that some of her photos actually brings some sort of childlike happiness,joy in these photos.


Then..

Lindsey Lohan...yuk..I dislike Lohan so much,yuk.Boring looking,nothing to give to camera or film -whatever.

Posted by: californiadude Sep 16 2006, 03:40 PM

I think Anna has very strong facial expressions...out of all the celebrities that do the "Marilyn" I think Anna does it the best, and I have to say it biggrin.gif I think Lindsay's "Marilyn Inspired Shoots" are beautiful! I love Lindsay as a blonde and a redhead!

Some photos of Anna-Nicole, Christina Aguilera, Mariah Carey and Madonna



 

Posted by: Tara Sep 16 2006, 06:17 PM

In that third pic of Madonna (the balcony one), I think she looks not like MM, but Jean Harlow.

Posted by: Cassandra Rose Sep 16 2006, 11:20 PM

I personally thought Anna Nicole was the only one who pulled it off. In the early 90's she was so curvy and gorgous(She still is beautiful) but she pulled it off so swell. The one where she is laying down side ways in the black dress is extremely gorgous and has a Marilyn feeling to it.

I've always thought Anna did the "Marilyn" the best...

Posted by: Katri^ Sep 18 2006, 05:58 PM

Though I don't like people copying Marilyn, i like that Christina Aguilera-pic. It's pretty! I don't like Anna Nicole Smith so those are deifinitely not my favourite "MM" pics.
It's stupid to copy Marilyn's photos; Isn't it better to be "remembered" from your own pics than from photo shoots that has been already done? No one can copy completely MM's photos, but even trying is not very cool. Unique photos stay, copyed don't. Like that Geri Halliwell trying to copy MM's Bert Stern photos?? no.gif It makes me angry, it's disrespectful. Just my opinion...

To all the people who don't really like the "Marilyn-inspired" photo shoots, maybe some didn't like Marilyn doing "Jean-inspired" photoshoots. biggrin.gif And to be honest, if I had the chance to actually have photos of myself copying the beautiful Marilyn, I would be so honored! drool.gif

Info: Mariah Carey is copying the iconic SGTG pool scene, Gwen Stefani, the Alfred Eisenstadt shoot.

They're both beautiful. bye1.gif

Yes, it is from the video "Cool" but Gwen is a fan of Marilyn, and the minute I saw the video, I thought of the Eisenstadt shoot. The black turtleneck, red lips and blonde hair...

To put it bluntly, I don't like Christina Aguilera. I don't like Madonna. And I don't really like Lindsay that much anymore. But I truely think it's great that they are modeling after one of the most beautiful people in history. thumbup1.gif They just need to do a more natural approach to it. That's what Marilyn did.

Posted by: Katri^ Sep 25 2006, 05:08 PM

I think that the Lisa Marie picture is one of the best pics I've ever seen of someone doing "Marilyn". You're right, the make-up looks almost perfect wink3.gif

Posted by: SAiKARO Sep 25 2006, 09:00 PM

i have that picture of lisa marie presley! it's from a make-up artist book (i can't think of the make-up artist, doh!)
when i flipped through the book i thought it was marilyn at first and then i saw that it was lisa marie presley. there's another picture of her in that book posing as marilyn. i will scan it later.

EVA Longoria has recreated screen legend Marilyn Monroe's famous skirt scene for a sexy new telly advert.
The Desperate Housewives star's pose mirrors Monroe from the movie The Seven Year Itch, in which a draft catches her white dress.
Eva, 31, features in Pepsi Max's latest campaign, to be aired for the first time this week. And the actress, Gabrielle Solis in the Channel 4 show, revealed she's "excited" by the ad.

Eva said: "It's cheeky without being rude - hopefully everyone will enjoy it."
Pepsi bosses were delighted. Bruno Gruwez said: "Eva was the perfect choice for our Max Your Life campaign.

"Not only does she appeal to consumers around the globe, she truly looks to get the maximum out of everything she does."

Eva is quitting Housewives and has warned fans they are unlikely to see her again in a telly series.
She added: "I love doing both TV and film but I would never do another show after Desperate Housewives."
Eva recently made her big screen debut in thriller The Sentinel.

- I like Eva, so I think the pictures will look pretty good, if it's true. blush.gif

Posted by: SAiKARO Sep 25 2006, 11:55 PM

i scanned the other pic of lisa marie presley. personally i think the picture of her posted before looks more like marilyn. the make-up artist is kevyn aucoin. this is a scan from his book, making faces. it's a really neat book!
i also scanned the steps to doing "the bombshell" look that was in his book, incase any of you want to do your make-up like marilyn for a day! enjoy!

I like Stefani so much. I never was a Madonna fan. Material girl video made me want to vomit back in the day. (Diamonds are a girls best friend).

Posted by: SAiKARO Sep 27 2006, 10:59 PM

yeah, i'm not that big of a madonna fan either. or an aguilera fan. when they have the marilyn inspired looks, i'm just not feeling it. but gwen, i think she's always pulled it off perfectly!

Posted by: Tiina Sep 28 2006, 12:22 PM

That's because Gwen doesn't go over the top. She's not trying to act like Marilyn she just takes little things from MM's style and mixes them with her own style.

Gwen is very beautiful, she's not trying to look like Marilyn too much, like Madonna (I haven't ever been a Madonna fan, and I never will ). - I'm not a huge Christina Aguilera fan, but she does look a bit like Marilyn in some pictures! But she's trying too hard too... :( Not good.

I too like a lot Gwen Stefani.Very beautiful and elegant woman.
Christina Aquilera has interesting voice but well,I'm not too big fan of hers.
Madonna was my favourite,very intelligent but maybe little too calculating.Anyways,I like her still but she is not int the top of my list no more.

Sybil Saulnier, those pictures are a good example of how much a person can be put in hair, makeup , and clothing to resemble monroe, yet there just is still no spark. its almost strange to see it, like the french actress does resemble marilyn to some degree yet there is no extra,,,hmmm,,,je n'sais quoi...teehee

so here's some of cindy crawford. shes not necessarily posing like mm but it just reminds me of her..however,i have been looking for the shots of her and grace jones made up to look like marilyn...i want to say kevyn aucoin(makeup artist) did both of their looks for the shoot but i can't remember.

Posted by: Tiina Oct 25 2006, 02:25 PM

In my opinion Mira Sorvino looks nothing like MM in those pics. I haven't seen the movie where she played Marilyn, but some other Sorvino movie and I think she's OK as an actress, but not anything special like for example Meryl Streep is. To me Sorvino is just another pretty face. But I would love to see that movie! Maybe I would change my mind.

I would have to agree. I'm sure Poppy did her best but I felt sheer embarrasment for her throughout that awful mini-series.

Posted by: Katri^ Oct 25 2006, 03:18 PM

I haven't seen that movie where Poppy Montgomery is, though I would love to! She looks a bit like MM...
But I think that even if Sorvino ( I can't say anything about Montgomery, I haven's seen any of her films ) did her best job, it
wasn't quite "good enough" (and I belive that Marilyn probably likes that they are making movies about her life)... Hope you understand what I'm trying to say biggrin.gif

Posted by: Tiina Oct 25 2006, 03:18 PM

I have to admitt that I enjoyed watching the mini-serie. I should see more of those movies where different actresses play Marilyn, because Blonde is the only one I have ever seen. I can't really say who act as Marilyn the best or did Montgomery suck if compared to Sorvino or Judd.

Posted by: Katri^ Oct 25 2006, 07:53 PM

Norma Jean & Marilyn is the only MM movie, that I have seen, where some actress plays Marilyn. It's hard to compare actresses, when you have seen only one film about her life! smile1.gif

i agree with you tiina. anyone can dye their hair blonde, put it in pin curls, wear red lipstick, and put a beauty mark on their face. but they won't have the beautiful sparkle in their eyes like marilyn had. that's where so many people nowadays don't realize when they are trying to get the 'marilyn' look. no.gif

Yep, that's true. If Mickey Mouse would wear a blonde wig, and put some makeup on, they would probably say: "Oh, there's Marilyn Monroe! Mickey looks just like her!" no.gif I don't think it's right to compare Marilyn to someone who doesn't even look like her...

I watched Blonde a while ago and I also thought it was awful, concentrating purely on all the negative aspects of Marilyn's life and I don't think the actress who played her brought out any of her humour or warmth. It's the only Marilyn related programme/film that I've turned off halfway through because it was irritating me so much.

Posted by: Tiina Oct 27 2006, 10:39 AM

It was years ago when I first saw Blonde. I was just starting as a Marilyn-fan and I enjoyed watching anything related to her. I didn't know that the mini-serie was so negative to Marilyn's memory, because I didn't know that much about her life. I think if I would see Blonde now, I would probably be irratated just like you.
These days keeping Marilyn's memory alive and protecting it is very important to me, but back then I just liked her photos and thought she was beautiful, I didn't really "knew" her like I do know, if you know what I mean. balloon.gif

I realized we don't have that many photos of Mariah Carey posing in Marilyn style in this thread and so I will add some. I love Mariah's voice, she's a great great singer. I think her public image is too sexy these days, but she's got the voice! And Mariah LOVES Marilyn.













 

Posted by: Katri^ Oct 31 2006, 06:32 PM

I don't like Mariah Carey very much, but some of those pics are very pretty! smile1.gif

Posted by: Tiina Oct 31 2006, 07:33 PM

I bet you don't like Mariah, because you picture her a bit evil in your mind, maybe? Mariah is known as the queen divah. People (the press) says she's quite a b***h, but who knows? We don't have to believe everything what they say about her, just like we don't believe everything they claim about Marilyn.
Like I said I dislike Mariah's image, but she hasn't always desperately tried to look like a pornstar. When MC started music was the number one thing about her and Carey's voice was truly at her best. People thought she was pretty too, but like I said Mariah was known for her voice not for her looks. These days when someone mentiones Mariah Carey you immediately remember her as the pretty girl with huge boobs and than a bit later you remember that oh yes, she could once sing too... Some people say she can't sing anymore, but they are being too hard on her. It's true that she can't sing like she used to, it was sheer perfection, but Mariah is still a great singer. It's sad that she lipsynchs alot these days though... because I don't think she needs to do that.

I don't know why I defend her like this! laugh.gif I used to hate her too, because I thought she was needless in the music world, just another pretty face with the shape who has nothing to offer to anyone but then I heard her earlier recordings and watched her performing live in the 1990's and because I sing too I was just amazed by her talent, I can only dream of having a voice like Mariah's.
I guess I have gone a bit off topic biggrin.gif so about the pictures: I think Mariah looks beautiful in them and she's classy. I love the pics her at the beach and those where she is "Norma Jeane".

Posted by: Katri^ Oct 31 2006, 07:54 PM

I love Mariah's songs! She has an amazing voice. I have once seen her performing live on TV ( or youtube, don't remember laugh.gif ), and I was really impressed. She really can sing, and it was great to just listen to her.
You're right, Tiina. I probably imagine her as this evil bitch because all the magazines and stuff... I can't judge her because I don't know her at all! I can compare her to Marilyn; they both were/are misunderstood. Maybe that's not the best word to this, "misunderstood", but I can see the "Marilyn/Mariah" thing that way.
It's good that someones defending her! biggrin.gif
I changed my opinion quite fast about this, but it doesn't matter.
And about those pics, the "Bert Stern- Mariah" pictures are so beautiful! She looks great. smile1.gif
This must be the longest "message" (or something like that) that I have ever posted in ES, lol! Not as long as yours Tiina, but anyway biggrin.gif

Posted by: Tiina Oct 31 2006, 09:34 PM

Hi Katri biggrin.gif You don't have to change your mind about Mariah just to agree with me. I hope you didn't take my earlier message as an attack against you or anything, because that wasn't my "plan" at all. balloon.gif
Yes the two ladies have some things in common, probably that they are both misunderstood just like you said Katri, but I think that Mariah isn't as misunderstood as Marilyn is because she really wants to be known as "the sexy Mariah Carey" and that was something Marilyn run away later in her career, because she wanted to be taken seriously as an actress and didn't want to be known just as the beautiful blond bombshell.
I'm guessing that Mariah is a bit insecure about herself and her career, because she's getting older every year and it effects her looks and as a singer she also surely worries about her voice too, because age effects on that too, especially in Mariah's case because she has used it through her life. That's why she has created this new sexy image so that people wouldn't think that oh she's old and also looks old (compared to other popsingers). She has to compete with young stars like Beyonce, Aguilera, Spears and others, so no wonder she's so precise about looking just right. I think Mariah doesn't look that great in her other photos (younger ones), because they are so un-natural. When she's doing Marilyn she looks better because she has to go for more softer look.

I'm defending her because I admire her as a singer, but she's not my idol or anything.

I don't really like the second one .. Ripping of the Bert Stern session this time. I liked her in Evita, but that's just it. She's not my type for a singer.

Posted by: Katri^ Nov 1 2006, 03:44 PM

No, I didn't change my mind because of that. I just can't judge her (or anyone else), because I don't know her. I haven't seen very new pics of her, but she looks great in the old ones. When she's doing those MM-poses, she has this softer look in them, like you said Tiina.
Well, I must say that I like Mariah more than Madonna! I haven't ever been a Madonna fan, and I'll never be! mellow.gif I don't like her music, that's it. I can't say what's she like in person, but anyway... I hate Madonna-Marilyn pics, they are not as beautiful as Marilyn's. She looks kind of hard, not as kind and friendly as Marilyn in her pics. laugh.gif

Great! So I'm not the only person who dislikes Madonna on this board laugh.gif I felt like I was the only one when I joined ES. I blaimed Madonna for stealing ideas/style/image from Marilyn and other retro stars and some people didn't like it when I raised my voice and said how I feel about Madonna. I didn't have anything positive to say about her back then.
I still don't like Madonna... but I like some of her songs, like Vogue. I think it's cool.

Marilyn's hair was beautiful! I always wonder how she kept it looking so pretty and youthful, because blond short hair with curls makes almost everybody else looking older than they really are. Good example is Madonna in the 80's with her curls... it was a catastrophe.
I would love to have my hair styled like Marilyn had hers, but I'm afraid it would make me look old and stupid.
I have always loved Marilyn's hair if anything about her looks. I don't understand your fiance...

Posted by: Ileana Nov 1 2006, 06:12 PM

I think it's the fact that his grannies were both in their prime during the Marilyn age and short hair was trendy, so they kept it, it's not really granny hair, just '50s. Anyway, if you read this, shame on you, baby! laugh.gif

In my perspective, I really don't like the Madonna pictures of Marilyn.

Those hard-core interpretations of then tasteful Marilyn pictures give credit to the ideas today to Marilyn being seemingly "slutty." In no way any picture of Marilyn was being done distastefully (even when she was nude), but Madonna just makes it look dirty! rolleyes1.gif

Scarlett Johanson doesnt look like Marilyn, but she has that classy 50's look for sure and she does it really really well. i like her way better than Christina Aguilera

Posted by: Tiina Nov 2 2006, 03:59 PM

I respect Madonna as a businesswoman, she has got a very strong will and she knows what she wants and how to get it (she surely knows how to sell herself) But I think it makes her a bit vicious, that's how I see her as a person. Some people say Madonna has just got a lot of self-confidence but I think she's got a lot of anger instead. blush.gif I don't know if you guys know what I mean, but... I think women/girls sometimes think that if they act very mean and in a bitchy way other people will think they have a lot of self-confidence, but self-confidence hasn't got anything to do with being evil and pushing other people down.
Espcially young girls sometimes creates this sort of "shell" around them to get respect from others. They actually want others to be afraid of them. Women and girls has to compete with men and boys who rule(d) so that's why some females want so much to emphasize their self-confidence and if they don't have it they can always act like they do. In my opinion Madonna is one of those.
Or maybe not. Maybe she just wants to get her name in the history books. I bet Madonna wants to be remembered like Marilyn, as a legend and a symbol of... something. But no matter how hard she tries she will never be like Marilyn, ever.

I agree it's a bit much for children under the age of say...14 to dress up as a sex symbol, but Elle Fanning is a real Marilyn Monroe fan! She dressed up (as most little girls do) as her favorite movie star for a Halloween AIDS charity in 2004. Her parents should not have put her in 3 inch heels! She was only 6 years old at the time! Like I said, A BIT MUCH!



Elle Fanning "dressing up"?


Posted by: Isabella Nov 4 2006, 02:17 AM

I think they are trying so hard, that they fail.

But we have to remember, that even the great MM was copying somebody.

I like Madonna as a Madonna, not Madonna as Marilyn.

And I think itīs nice that people like Christina bring some personality to the music business, but trying to copy Marilyn is just wrong way to do it no.gif

Itīs just better to be who you are...

Offtopic: I was watching TV and they played her new video (christina aguilera). There was somekind of circus people in it (?) and I think Christina look just like Jean Harlow in it!

Posted by: Tiina Nov 4 2006, 04:05 AM

Yes I watched the video from YouTube and after that I tried to find pics of Aguilera on the elephant laugh.gif
When Christina's 50's phase started she tried to look more MM, now she looks more a mix of different old Hollywood stars. It makes me laugh when people say that look at Christina she has come up with this brand new idea of bringing back the good old glamour from the 50's, because it's not anything new! Other stars; singers, actors/actresses has been inspired by Marilyn and others for many years before Christina became known. It's not her idea. rolleyes1.gif But she has never looked better, that is true.

I was a bit disgusted because of that child dressed up as Marilyn. unsure.gif I'm not sure why. I guess it's just too much. The first thing that came into my mind was that some sic pervert would like that no.gif

Posted by: Tiina Nov 4 2006, 04:57 AM

I'd like to add these Scarlett pics to our collection balloon.gif
I think she is a very very beautiful woman. She's not afraid to show her curvy body which is very Marilyn.

Scarlett has a square face. Square jaw, square nose - very manly. Personally I don't find her stunning.

QUOTE(Tiina @ Oct 31 2006, 07:33 PM) [snapback]119083[/snapback]
I bet you don't like Mariah, because you picture her a bit evil in your mind, maybe? Mariah is known as the queen divah. People (the press) says she's quite a b***h, but who knows? We don't have to believe everything what they say about her, just like we don't believe everything they claim about Marilyn.
Like I said I dislike Mariah's image, but she hasn't always desperately tried to look like a pornstar. When MC started music was the number one thing about her and Carey's voice was truly at her best. People thought she was pretty too, but like I said Mariah was known for her voice not for her looks. These days when someone mentiones Mariah Carey you immediately remember her as the pretty girl with huge boobs and than a bit later you remember that oh yes, she could once sing too... Some people say she can't sing anymore, but they are being too hard on her. It's true that she can't sing like she used to, it was sheer perfection, but Mariah is still a great singer. It's sad that she lipsynchs alot these days though... because I don't think she needs to do that.

I don't know why I defend her like this! laugh.gif I used to hate her too, because I thought she was needless in the music world, just another pretty face with the shape who has nothing to offer to anyone but then I heard her earlier recordings and watched her performing live in the 1990's and because I sing too I was just amazed by her talent, I can only dream of having a voice like Mariah's.
I guess I have gone a bit off topic biggrin.gif so about the pictures: I think Mariah looks beautiful in them and she's classy. I love the pics her at the beach and those where she is "Norma Jeane".


Mariah is a big Marilyn fan. Of course she bought Marilyn's white baby grand piano which now sits in her New York City apartment. Also, the shots posted above are a big rip off of all the Bert Stern setups. But I did like the inclusion of a mini-tribute to "Something's Got To Give" in Mariah's video for Don't Forget About Us (Mariah does the pool scene). Very few people know about that movie, so Mariah (or one of her handlers...but I think it's more likely Mariah) must have done her homework.

Of course everyone's entitled to their opinion but I think it's suddenly become the trend to bash Scarlett, you only have to look at the last few messages on here. The Marilyn comparison as I've said before is largely a press issue, she dosen't go round telling anybody she's the new Marilyn it's not as if she's conceived it at all. I think everyone's just getting a bit flustered about it because they're being told by magazines and newspapers that she's the 'New Marilyn' and it's putting their backs up because we all know there never will be another.

If you just don't like her then fair enough but maybe people should have a bit more perspective and a free mind rather than just sharpening the knives with the crowd.

Posted by: Tiina Nov 8 2006, 02:52 PM

Trend or not, I don't like Scarlett as an actress. She's not the worst out there, but when she shows up on screen she doesn't give me goosebumbs or anything. But like I said, she's a very beautiful lady.

By the way, I never said (not that I remember) that Scarlett looks like Marilyn from her face, you know? I only said she's got the curvy, feminine body that Marilyn had. I put those pics there because I thought they might have been taken to create photos in the classic Marilyn-style which this thread is about. I didn't really compare Scarlett to Marilyn.
And another thing that bothers me! Sometimes when I write here some people might misunderstand me, because I think in finnish (can't help it) and then I try to translate my thoughts in english and at times you probably have some difficulties to understand what I mean, like for example "She's not afraid to show her curvy body which is very Marilyn."

i agree with robm i think when celebs do photo shoots they are marilyn 'inspired '. i don't think they actually think hey look at me i'm marilyn. marilyn has and always be an inspiration or muse to people, celebs or just us guys, thats marilyn she inspires and makes you think.
i actually feel sorry for celebs that do anything marilyn as they are torn to pieces by marilyn fans when all they are is inspired they are not ripping marilyn off.
i love it when i see marilyn inspired work its cool they are keeping her and her image alive and introducing marilyn to new younger fans who otherwise may have never have heard of marilyn.

Tiina - my comments weren't actually aimed at anything you said so I'm sorry of you made you feel that they were. I totally respect your views on Scarlett's acting and of course you're free to make them.

By the way I ordered Norma Jean and Marilyn and I received about a week ago and... I just think that it is rolleyes1.gif shall I say disgusting... I just hate it! The first time I watched it I couldn't make it to the end. I had to stop, because I got so angry! angry.gif They seem to have almost everything wrong in that movie (I mean the facts! For example in the movie Marilyn dies in the ambulance though everybody knows she was found dead from her home...) and the way they make Marilyn look! Like she was just a stupid slut who went to bed with any man if it was good for her career! VERY DISRESPECTFUL.
I hate Mira Sorvino as Marilyn. She was ridiculous I mean I just laughed my head off many times during the film! I don't understand why she was picked to play her. She doesn't even look like Marilyn.
Ashley Judd was better, but I was terrified of the role she played. In my mind Norma Jean(e) was this cute and shy girl not like Ashley Judd's Norma Jean. In the movie NJ was just a little slut and Judd spent probably half of time naked in the movie. And the way they made her speak "fuck this and fuck that"... not Marilyn's style at all.
I hate Norma Jean and Marilyn. Yuck

Gwen's hair is very co-cool laughing.gif but I see a lot of extensions there!

Posted by: Tiina Nov 24 2006, 02:35 PM

You are right. But I think in this photo there are no extensions and I'm going to take that one with me.

I like Gwen too, music's going a bit downhill lately, but she always impresses me with her style and I love the make-up!
Red lipstick all the way! thumbup1.gif

You say 'her' face, but there's something you don't know about 'her' laugh.gif



She is a SHE, you mean she was a man! she has had gender reassignment surgery so there fore is a woman!!

Posted by: Ileana Nov 25 2006, 10:39 PM

Well, let's just say I said that to emphasize the difference between 'her' and women who are actually born women. For clarification's sake, I'm sure 'transsexual' is a better way of saying it than 'woman'.

I heard Aguilera the other day saying her influences are from the '20s, '30s ad '40s, in other words 'Me, exploiting Marilyn Monroe's look?! Never!' Oh, please! laughing.gif

Posted by: Tiina Nov 27 2006, 07:02 PM

Christina has mentioned Marilyn many times in different interviews.
Her album might be inspired of the 20's, 30's and 40's but I think Marilyn has been an inspiration to her looks.

Here's a piece of news I found about Naomi Watts.

 

Posted by: Ileana Nov 27 2006, 07:11 PM

Actually she was talking strictly about her look in that elephant video, and true, her look is more Mae West/Jean Harlow, but the elephant is Marilyn's, give it back! laughing.gif

Posted by: Tiina Nov 28 2006, 04:18 PM

The elephant thing must have come from Marilyn. Madonna did it too.
Christina was more interested of Marilyn when her retro-phase started, she had her hair short and curly and always tried to pose like MM and talked more about Marilyn. Now she only mentions Marilyn among with other stars.

Posted by: Ileana Nov 28 2006, 04:23 PM

Wonderful signature pic, Tiina! throb.gif

Posted by: Tiina Nov 28 2006, 05:09 PM

Thanks biggrin.gif

Posted by: annette Nov 28 2006, 06:45 PM

Some of the women looked great in those pictures, Iīve seen the Lisa Marie Presley picture before and I just love it. Also Charlize Theron was amazing, hadnīt seen those before, wow smile1.gif

Posted by: Tiina Nov 29 2006, 02:25 PM

That's true, Lisa Marie is just amazing as MM. yes.gif She looks so much her that it's a bit scary!

A small picture of Finnish actress Sari Siikander from the musical 'Marilyn'. Is she recreating the Red Velvet photo's? Sorry that it is so small.


 

Posted by: Katri^ Nov 29 2006, 05:54 PM

That scene was so well done! She was singing "Do it again" at the same time, if I remember correctly biggrin.gif

Posted by: Tiina Nov 30 2006, 11:22 AM

I haven't seen that musical but I think she is recreating the Red Velvet photoshoot in that scene. balloon.gif I got a magazine called Viva! (it's definitely for older people laugh.gif) from my neighbour yesterday and Sari is on it's cover. I think she looks quite a lot like Marilyn in the pic so I will scan it for you.
By the way Katri where have you been? I haven't seen you here for a long time. coolio.gif

Posted by: Tiina Nov 30 2006, 04:36 PM

Madonna is back again.

^ I like the second-to-the-last picture! Done very well! Except for the naked men in the background o_O

Scan from this weeks InTouch magazine.

 

Posted by: Tara Nov 30 2006, 10:04 PM

Wow Tiina, you certainly do have a lot of photos of Madonna. There are some magazines that I remember from the 1980s.

And that actress from the Finnish musical looks really good! biggrin.gif

Posted by: Tiina Dec 1 2006, 11:11 AM

Yeah and I'm not a fan! laugh.gif I just want to find as many Madonna as Marilyn pics that I can so that I can put them here. biggrin.gif

Posted by: Tiina Dec 1 2006, 12:25 PM

Here is my scan of Sari. I think she's really pretty! Very natural. balloon.gif

Great new addition, Caroline!

Posted by: Katri^ Dec 4 2006, 03:07 PM

Tiina, my mum didn't let me to come to Es because the virus-thing.. :( It's really annoying...
Thanks, Tiina for the scan and all the pics! smile1.gif Sari looks very much like MM!

Posted by: Tiina Dec 5 2006, 12:23 PM

I know it's so annoying! I had something wrong with my computer some time ago and I couldn't use the Internet or anything, not even check my e-mail.
Anyway, I'm glad you're back! bye1.gif

I love Naomi Watts, I think she is very beautiful and talented. I don't really think she looks too great made up like that though. I prefer stuff like this:
