Recognize the name Norma Jeane Mortensen? We didn’t think so – Norma Jeane Mortensen is more affectionately known to the entire world as Marilyn Monroe – one of the most well known icons associated with beauty in not only the United States – but the world. In honor of her 87th birthday on June 1, we take a look back at the one of the most well known pop culture icons in the world.

Marilyn Monroe is probably the most celebrated and recognizable actress in the entertainment industry. Sure, she sung of diamonds being a girl’s best friend, but her life was anything but grand prior to being discovered by RKO Pictures’ Howard Hughes, a multi-millionaire businessman, film producer and director.

Her father abandoned the family prior to her birth, poverty was a constant struggle, and her mother was mentally unstable. At the age of nine, she was placed in an orphanage after being in and out of various foster homes.  After overcoming a seemingly difficult childhood, Marilyn Monroe went on to make a name for herself in the growing entertainment industry.

Did you know any of these fun facts about Marilyn?

  • She is known for her breathless voice, voluptuous figure, sparkling blue eyes – don’t forget the beauty mark or platinum blonde hair!
  • She debuted her famous platinum blonde locks in 1952′s Monkey Business
  • The identity of Marilyn Monroe was created in 1946, but she didn’t legally changer her name until 1956.
  • Marilyn was the first woman to be featured on the cover of Playboy Magazine.
  • In 1953, she starred in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes and began dating the one and only Joe DiMaggio. A huge movie role and a relationship with baseball great Joe DiMaggio – talk about making it big!
  • In 1999, she was voted People Magazine’s “Sexiest Woman of the Century”.

We decided to honor Marilyn in true Redesign fashion, and it was obvious it would not be hard to find amazing pieces of art that paid tribute to this iconic figure. Check out our 15 favorite artist tributes to Miss Monroe below.

Walter Molino: illustrateur pour la presse italienne

Walter Molino (né en novembre 1915 à Reggio Emilia, mort en 1998) était illustrateur de presse (on prétend qu'il fut le caricaturiste préféré de Mussolini), dessinateur de bande dessinée dès les années 30, et illustrateur pour les frères Del Duca (Alceo et Domenico, qui ont lancé en 1946 le magazine "Grand Hotel" en Italie, pendant que leur troisième frère exilé en France, lance "Nous Deux" en 1947), qui lui offrent un emploi dès 1946, alors qu'il est interdit de presse - il utilisera le pseudonyme de Sten pendant une dizaine d'années, pour ses couvertures et ses romans dessinés. C'est lui qui crée la première couverture de "Grand Hôtel" et de "Nous Deux" (le magazine français ne faisait que reprendre les illustrations de sa version italienne). Il dessinera jusque dans les années 80 pour Grand Hôtel, mais sa collaboration à Nous Deux s'interrompt à la fin des années soixante.
Giulio Bertoletti sera le second de Molino pendant des années, avant de devenir le principal dessinateur de "Nous Deux", où il sera rejoint par d'autres créateurs très majoritairement italiens.
