    Marilyn Monroe would have turned 86 today, but although the American icon isn’t around to blow out her own candles (in the wind or otherwise...), there are plenty of projects that carry her legacy. From movies and television shows chronicling the actress’ rise and fall to lipstick colors and lingerie named in honor of her signature style, Marilyn may have left earth sixty years ago, but she’s still everywhere you look. Remember these Marilyn Monroe candles, said to smell like her lipstick?! In honor of the late actress and her lacy, pouty legacy, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite current homages. Happy Birthday, Ms. Monroe - we’re forever in love with you.
