Clara Bow, with her heart shaped face, cupid-bow lips and flaming red hair was the original “it Girl.” There is no real definition for “It Girl,” but everyone knows it when they see it. Reportedly, Clara Bow bestowed her “It Girl” status on a young starlet named Marilyn Monroe. Since Marilyn Monroe, a blond bombshell of Hollywood, died, there have been other “It Girls.” “It Girl” status has been bestowed on the young party girls who come and go through Hollywood, such as Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan.
