Are You a Jackie or a Marilyn? Culture:

Are You a Jackie or a Marilyn? Culture:

"Are you a Jackie or a Marilyn?" by Pamela Keogh

Read the Book for a more in-depth analysis of these two icons and which one you relate to more...

In the sixties, blonde bombshell Marilyn Monroe was the woman men wanted to sleep with. Sweet. Seductive. Charming. THE sex symbol of the time.
She was every man's fantasy.

On the flip side, brunette beauty Jaqueline Kennedy was the woman men brought home to Mom. Intelligent, Beautiful, stylish. THE First Lady.
She embodied a picture-perfect reality.

It's a more complex question than it first appears. And it's a question that seems to be as ageless as the divas themselves. It was even featured on an episode of AMC's Mad Men (best show on television, IMO)

So, as I can relate to some of Marilyn's wanderlust and vulnerability.
I am (despite a newer, blonder hair color) will always be a Jackie.
