Marilyn Monroe named new face of Max factor 53 years after she died., It doesn’t matter that she has been dead for 53 years, movie/sex icon and Hollywood’s most sought after blond Marilyn Monroe, has been named the new face of giant make-up brand – Max Factor. Max Factor announced today that Ms Monroe will be the brand’s ‘global glamour ambassador’ and will feature in this year’s advertising campaigns. “The adverts will emphasise the role that make-up played in Monroe’s transformation, from mousy Norma Jeane Mortenson to the red-lipped, platinum-haired bombshell which cemented her reputation as one of the west’s most enduring sex symbols.” MF said in a statement
Marilyn was a Max Factor client in the 40s and 50’s before her death in 1962. The money made from the deal will go to her estate. The sex symbol is one of the highest paid dead celebs in the world.
