The estate of Marilyn Monroe has been sold and the new owners are doing a complete relaunch of Marilyn-themed products.
Gone will be the MM shot glasses and other tacky bits that clutter the shelves of souvenir stores. The re-imagining of her image comes nearly 50 years after her death. They’re going to put out a line of clothing and perhaps something like bedsheets and tasteful home decor, not necessarily emblazoned with the star’s famous face or body. They haven’t decided exactly what kind of fashions they’ll endorse but the spokesperson says that whatever they are, they will be available in all sizes because, “Marilyn was an elegant woman but she wasn’t a pencil.”
