Mar 03 Marilyn Monroe with Chanel No 5
Chanel No. 5 is possibly the most iconic fragrance by far. I have one bottle in my personal fragrance collection too. The fashionable trend began in the 1950s with Marilyn Monroe… the woman who brought the Chanel name to fame. Modeling for Chanel No.5 early in her booming career, Monroe was pictured dabbing a bit of Chanel into her cleavage—and the advertisement splashed the world.
This drawing is inspired from the famous ad, which is still popular as an art poster.
