Marilyn Monroe died fifty years ago this week, which means that she'll be doing even more posthumous product endorsement than usual. Drybar is offering a "Marilyn" blowout all month long, which means they'll give you a '50s pinup-style look. MAC's Marilyn-inspired makeup line will drop later this fall. And now, a Florida-based spa company has announced plans to open Marilyn-themed spas and salons around the country later this year. Meaning now you can get your Marilyn-inspired makeup done in a room plastered with pictures of the actress. (Something tells us Andy Warhol would approve of this level of meta.)
