10 Rarely Seen Before Photographs Of Marilyn Monroe Relaxing At Home
When Marilyn Monroe wasn’t busy with photoshoots and filming movies, it is said she preferred to spend her free time living simply in hotels or at home.
At the start of her career, the iconic actress lived in many different New York apartments, later moving to a beautiful villa in Los Angeles. Both on screen and in real life, Marilyn Monroe was the definition of glamour. Although behind the scenes, of course, her style choices were more comfortable, and her wardrobe reserved for privacy differed greatly from what was seen in public. The actress adored bathrobes, slim pants, and soft-knit tops. However even in extremely pared back scenarios, Monroe managed to maintain the look of a true star.
When she didn’t have enough time or the desire for a perm, she hid her locks under a scarf or oversized handkerchief. Her style legacy lives on in more ways than one, considering that classic styling trick of the ’50s is still relevant today.
Below, Vogue revisits a series of ten archived still images of Marilyn Monroe, meanwhile rediscovering the perennial combination of white trousers and a black cashmere turtleneck, amongst others. Use it as a point of reference for forever-chic at home style.
