Marilyn Monroe is the reigning symbol of seductive beauty and charisma of the '50s and '60s. She loved furs of all kinds—including mink, fox, and a chinchilla—on and off-screen. Pictured above, Marilyn is wearing a natural mink collar with brown satin lining. This fur was a particular favorite of the late star; she wore it often while living in New York City. On a few occasions, she wore this shawl for famous fashion and celebrity photographer Milton H. Greene. She was also spotted wearing this piece during off-hours of the filming for The Prince and The Showgirl.

Elizabeth Taylor - Powerful, Playful Style in Ultra-Feminine Form
The infallible Elizabeth Taylor is remembered as a silver screen star, a starry-eyed romantic, and an intense beauty. But she's also remembered as a style icon and fashion devotee. Known for extravagant diamonds and furs, Elizabeth ruled as a style queen from the early 1950's through the seventies.

Born in London, she moved to America in the late 1930s. Elizabeth enjoyed a comfortable life in both countries even before becoming a star. Her blue, almost violet eyes and sophisticated style made her an instant stand out.

Once she achieved top celebrity status, she was the center of Hollywood intrigue and lavish tales, like the time she ordered 200 custom-made mink earmuffs for her entire Christmas list and needed them to be ready in a week. To step into your own Elizabeth Taylor persona, think bold furs for coats, shawls, and of course earmuffs.
Despite the end of the Old Days of Hollywood, modern celebrities still get fashion inspiration from the original styles icons like Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, and Elizabeth Taylor. The next time you're looking for a fun new way to wear fur, look to the stars of yesterday for inspiration.
