As someone who also goes by the life motto “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend,” it’s no surprise I’m obsessed with all things Marilyn Monroe. That’s why I’m thrilled to be diving into the extremely juicy novel The Blonde by New York Times bestselling author Anna Godbersen (you might know her other delicious reads The Luxe and Bright Young Things).
Her debut adult novel is a reinvented tale of Marilyn’s life–what if she was promised the fame and iconic status in exchange for a top secret mission to seduce a handsome young Senator named John F. Kennedy? No one would ever suspect that the most famous and beautiful woman in America is a spy for the Soviet Union, right?
OMFG, darlings. Pick up this book!
In honor of this book’s birthday, I thought it’d be fun to celebrate by taking a look at some of our favorite blondes in Hollywood right now. Will any of these ladies even come close to Marilyn’s iconic status? Take a look at the contenders below and vote for your favorite blonde! XOXO
