9. Brigitte Bardot

In the 1960s, Bardot was considered the most beautiful woman in the world. That may not be surprising now, but before then, being prim and proper was the way to go. Brigitte was a beautiful French girl who paired dramatic cat eye liquid liner with intentionally messy blonde hair that was often teased upwards to create volume. This look was often paired with miniskirts and bare feet, which created a more carefree glam that had a lasting effect on beauty lovers around the globe.

8. Marilyn Monroe

First of all, who doesn’t want to look like Marilyn? It may be a huge assumption, but that woman definitely made dramatic red lips and a curvaceous body the latest and greatest trend of her time,and maybe even of all time! When a woman gets dressed up for a fancy night out, the thought of doing red lips crosses her  mind at least once. We can thank our beloved Marilyn for that. She may not have been the first to try a red lip, but she definitely made it iconic!
