Jackie vs Marilyn

I saw this funny quiz on Vanity Fair this month about being a Jacky or a Marilyn. It's an excerpt of Pamela Keogh's new book, Are you a Jackie or a Marilyn, author of What would Audrey Do.
The questions are absolutely genius! some below, if you want more and want some answers head to VF, meanwhile I couldn't resist sharing some of my fave photos of these incredible ladies! 


BEFORE YOU MEET A MAN FOR DINNER, YOU ...
a) shave your legs.
b) run a Dun & Bradstreet on the guy.
c) break out your tippy-tallest Manolos and hope for the best.
YOUR FATHER ...
a) loved you and gave you confidence.
b) was Clark Gable.
c) taught you to throw a football.
MEETING YOUR FUTURE MOTHER-IN-LAW FOR THE FIRST TIME, YOU ...
a) convert to Judaism.
b) brush up on your French.
c) eschew underwear.









So who are you?

  2. Hmmmmmm ... let's see .... I'd be somewhere between Marilyn & Jackie. I think of Marilyn as light and fluffy and Jackie as serious and quiet. I'm neither ... or sometimes one and sometimes the other, depending on the hour! ;)

  5. Ha! I couldn't find answers that fit any of the questions... I guess I'm just a "Debby." I would aspire to be like Jackie the most, she was amazing. xo

  6. Great post - I have that issue of VF, but have not read it yet. If I wasn't procrastinating & skipping around reading all my favorite blogs I would be finishing my own post on Katie Holmes playing Jackie.
    Best,
