Vintage sunbathing beauties!

Sunbathing didn't become popular in Britain or America until the 1920s, when Coco Channel sparked the trend by sporting a deep, golden tan after holidaying in the French Riviera. Before that, upper class women had religiously protected their skin from the sun's rays, as tanned skin was an indication that you were poor and worked outside in the fields. Vintage Seekers takes a look back at some of the most stylish sun seekers and beach babes throughout the twentieth century...

Marilyn Monroe — In 1947, it was only a year after Norma Jean Baker began to be known as Marilyn Monroe and several years before she would go on to create the films she's loved for today. And, this coquettish snap from that year of the not-yet-blonde Marilyn in a striped, skirted two-piece is forever one of our faves.

I'm selfish, impatient, and insecure. I make mistakes. I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you don't deserve me at my best." - Marilyn Monroe #Marilyn #Quote #Inspirational #MarilynMonroe
