It seems that these days Marilyn Monroe is more popular than ever. Books, movies, gorgeous editorials — everywhere one looks, there’s Marilyn…rolling over in her grave. Eh, who am I kidding, she probably loves the attention. And she would definitely love this latest development: MAC is launching a line of cosmetics dedicated to the icon.

Some Like It MAC: Marilyn Monroe Gets New Cosmetics Line

The limited edition 30-piece collection launches in October and will include eye shadows, lipsticks, nail polishes and eyeliners,┬áranging in price from $15 to $27. So this fall you can put a little Monroe on your face then waltz down to the nearest subway grate to recreate The Seven Year Itch. Just make sure you don’t stand there too long, especially if you’re in New York, or that itch may last a lot longer. [WWD]

I was center square from 1969 to 1978, during which I perfected the art of the zing as well as a crippling cocaine addiction. Bea Arthur was responsible for both. @LesFabian lester dot brathwaite at gmail
