Cleopatra. What a shame that when we try to bring her to life on film, we choose to emphasize the physical beauty she never had, instead of the incredible wit and intelligence we KNOW she had.
She wasn't always icy.

Hollywood, 1953. "Actress Marilyn Monroe at home." 35mm color transparency by Alfred Eisenstaedt, Life magazine image archive. OMG! Eisenstaedt and Monroe, my two favorite people!!!
A must read on her life is "Fragments: Poems, intimate notes, letters by Marilyn Monroe and edited by Stanley Buchthal and Bernard Comment. Throughout the beautiful pages, images of Marilyn are scattered that depict her in a different light to the usual sexy Hollywood icon the world knows her as. Instead, we see her reading and often deep in thought which is reflected in the various notebooks she kept throughout her life detailing her innermost thoughts and feelings.

(Winston Churchill, then a Tory member of Parliament, called her the king’s “cutie.”) Wallis had wanted out of her relationship with the neurotic Edward for years. “This man is exhausting,” she complained in 1934, back when she still fancied herself “in control of the situation.” She used to say, in later life, that she aged ten years in 1936 and the one thing for which Wallis never forgave the Duke of Windsor was his decision to renounce his throne.

“Coco” Chanel revolutionised the fashion world, introducing simply-cut, practical, stylish clothes. The House of Chanel is credited with the Chanel suit – a boxy, tailored skirt suit. It’s also said to be where the “little black dress” originated – the elegant wardrobe staple that is the antithesis of the fussy, frilly “New Look” by Dior which became Chanel’s top competition in the 1950s.
Coco Chanel- more than just a fashion icon, she made progress in the women's suffrage through her clothes "A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous. "
