Going platinum is a bold choice. Sure, it’s a little easier for the natural blondes, but it often serves as a bold declaration when people take their dark strands and turn them toward gold or silver. Several celebrities have gone from black or brunette to blonde, and some blondes have iced it out in a true platinum. There are a few who simply stand out from the rest when pushing their hair toward the sheen of a most precious metal. Consider eight celebrities who have taken platinum blonde and made it look white hot!
8. Marilyn Monroe
Hollywood is known for pumping out its iconic blondes, but was there a more iconic, platinum blonde than Marilyn Monroe? The woman simply known as Marilyn, became the quintessential woman of the 1950s, and a style icon that has boasted universality for decades following. Sure, there were several other blondes that Hollywood offered as starlets during the era, but no one captured the intrigue of the actress born as Norma Jean Mortensen. She perfected the dumb blonde shtick, but showed impressive range in Some Like It Hot (1959). Tragically, Marilyn died at the age of 36, of a probable suicide, but her platinum legacy lives on.
