I Lived Like Marilyn Monroe for a Week | Cosmopolitan: Senior Cosmopolitan beauty editor Loni Venti took on the challenge of emulating the ultimate Cosmo girl, Marilyn Monroe, for an entire week. Here's what happened.

"I’ve never fooled anyone. I’ve let people fool themselves. They didn’t bother to find out who and what I was. Instead they would invent a character for me. I wouldn’t argue with them. They were obviously loving somebody I wasn’t.” Marilyn Monroe
