Style Icon: Arthur Miller

Arthur Miller: Famed American playwright (You might have read "Death of a Salesman" and "The Crucible" in high school English), large-glasses wearer, pipe smoker  and Marilyn-Monroe marry-er.

I love that these two were married. Marilyn Monroe so wanted to be more than a sexy bombshell. She had a brain too! She read books! And she married one of America's greatest intellectuals. And while he was not Marilyn-level hot (who is?), he did look pretty good in a suit.. and he wore a lot of suits.

Add to that suit a great coat and a snazzy hat, and you're looking good. (Marilyn's looking pretty good too. I suppose that goes without saying.)

While I'm rhapsodizing about the suits, it's actually casual Arthur Miller I love the most. Look at how much fun he's having in the above photo! Look at his great hat! Look at his smooth dance skills!

And while their marriage lasted only five years, it looks like they really loved each other.
