Norma Jeane’s Fashion First

Marilyn was one of the first stars to make jeans fashionable for women (and wore them onscreen in Clash By Night, River Of No Return, and The Misfits), so it’s only fitting that this 1945 photo of Norma Jeane (taken by Andre de Dienes) comes first in the timeline of British Vogue‘s Fashion History 101: The Classic T-Shirt and Jeans Combo (with the likes of Brigitte Bardot and Madonna following her lead.)
