No matter how much we love tracking celebrity blunders, we also love the glamour that comes out of Hollywood. And nowhere is that truer than Old Hollywood. Starlets like Marilyn and Audrey dazzled onscreen and off. They captivated then and continue to captivate now, so when it comes to modern beauty, it's all about channeling your own inner Old-Hollywood screen siren.
Marilyn Monroe's Red Lips
There are many glamorous things about Norma Jean's look, but her red lips top the list. To get the look, find the perfect shade of red (we like MAC Matte Lipstick in Russian Red, $14, maccosmetics.com) and wear with confidence.

Sophia Loren's Cat Eyes
Women have been trying to achieve the perfect cat-eye since Sophia Loren rocked her dramatic look in the 1960s. The key to a flawless cat-eye is a liner with an ultra-fine tip, like Smashbox's Heartbreaker Liquid Liner Pen ($24, smashbox.com).
Get more beautiful in just four weeks.
Audrey Hepburn's Eyebrows
Forget waxing and tweezing your brows until they're barely visible. Full, defined brows equal high glamour. Get them with Anastasia Classic Stencils ($20, sephora.com).
Learn why bigger is better when it comes to beauty.
Coco Chanel's Signature Scent
Style icon Coco Chanel's famous fragrance Chanel No. 5 Eau de Parfum ($80, sephora.com), is the ultimate symbol of classic beauty.
Find fragrances that equal romance.
Veronica Lake's Glam Waves
Sleek, graceful waves are ultra-sexy, and relatively easy. After blowing out your hair, simple set it in hot rollers, like Conair's Xtreme Instant Heat Multisized Hot Rollers, ($44.99, Conair.com), which are hot and ready to use in just 75 seconds. Leave them in while finishing the rest of your morning routine, then pull them out before leaving the house for sultry, silky waves.
