I have always been fascinated by Marilyn Monroe as a kid and even as an adult, to me, she has had a certain allure that no one else had.
She was not extraordinarily or spectacularly beautiful. There were many other actresses who were on par with regards to looks and figure.
It was her sex appeal. But what exactly was her sex appeal?
It just struck me, looking at a picture of this stunning woman.
It was her smile. She had this amazing, no holds barred smile. And it was bewitching.
Her ruby red lips and her smile lit her face and made her overwhelmingly attractive. And she had a smile that reached her eye and put a twinkle in it. And everything else just fell in place.
Its what makes Madhuri Dixit outstandingly beautiful too.
See , beauty finally has to be approachable.
Beauty has to have warmth.
Thats when you touch hearts and mind with a lasting presence – that elusive X factor.
Combine that with a stunning ensemble of external perfection, real talent, a curious mind that thirsts for knowledge, a sense of humour with impeccable timing…. thats when you get a legend.
The legend of Marilyn. She was not a candle in the wind. She was a lasting tornado you didnt realise happened because you were mesmerised by the eye of the storm.
