Marilyn Monroe VS Audrey Hepburn
Oct 9, 2007 02:22
GUEST83222 All of you above are wrong. There are so many other stars that look like Hepburn-grace and
elegant (Grace kelly, etc)...and there is only one Marilyn Monroe. Nobody imitates Audrey Hepburn. Many stars want to be Marilyn Monroe. She has her own style. In fact, she invented her own style. There are so many interesting details of Monroe to tell. Only one detail is enough to overshaddow other stars. For example, the way she smiles. She is the only star that knows how to shine so bright. Every thing was against Marilyn Monroe since she was a child. However, with her brilliant way, she won what she wanted. All other stars are helped by others to shine-that's is why they never really shine brightly. Marilyn Monroe knew how to shine and kept on struggling to shine though everything was against her-that's why she shines more brightly than any other stars. Even today, she is still the brightest star of all,...

GUEST61152 I love them both but in different ways. There is something about Marilyn that you will never forget, and that is that smile. No matter how awful her life was she always knew how to put on a show. Audrey had this true classic, innocent beauty. She wasn't made up, what you see is what you get. They both had such an unforgettable way about them.

GUEST13250 Audrey, in my opinon. Marilyn was tragically beautiful, but Audrey had true depth. Her childhood was tragic as well, having suffered through the depravities of war-torn Europe. Her trim figure was due to malnutrition and countless other diseases she suffered as a child. Marilyn was blonde, buxomy, blue eyed and fair: the epitomy of what was "ideal" in the 1950's (jayne mansfield, etc). Audrey was different. She entered the scene the complete opposite of what was considered feminine, (tall, brunette, lean, boyish) and in some ways redefined it. Or at least broadened the definition. Look at models today. They certainly look more like Audrey than Marilyn. Audrey proved that 36-26-26 are not the narrow perimeters with which to define beauty. Audrey wasn't simply a vulnerable, sad, breathy, woman-child, but a unique and strikingly beautiful nymph. She had a certain allure and a je ne sais quoi that has enchanted movie goers for years. She was also the better actress. Beauty is disputable, but Audrey's abilities on the screen far surpassed that of Marilyn's. This isn't to say I don't enjoy the films of Marilyn - I just watched Some Like it Hot and I love it as much as ever, and her in it. In her defense, she often got stuck playing the "dumb blonde" roles - when she was far from being a dumb blonde in real life. It would have been nice to see her play a meaty role, although studio executives and her own mess of a personal life probably prevented it.

As for the person who said no one tries to imitate Audrey- ummm hello? Her look endures today. The little black dress? She is a fashion legend. She recently had an entire Life magazine devoted to her. Countless actresses - from Diane Keaton to Natalie Portman - list her as an influence.

It's all silly to me. Both were beautiful in their own way. Why compare? I'm sure most women would give their left arm to be as beautiful as either.

Monroe is better. Roman holidays made a star-Audrey, while Monroe made herself a star and she was more professional. Gentlemen, pls be fair, don't sterotype blonde.

Shesgottobe, anything is debatable! LOL! What do you think of the? I started this thread, but most comments are made by men.( I am not sure about the guests' gender). What I really want to know what you think of Audrey and Marilyn from a woman's perspective. You know, sometimes, women and men have different aesthetic standards.

Audrey projected the demure image. Marilyn projected the sultry image. Both were popular actresses. What they project onscreen are not them. Those are roles they play. I don’t know any of them personally so I can’t make an assessment. I don’t make assessments based on appearances either. ^_^
