If Elizabeth Taylor and Marilyn Monroe had been around today, would they have been on Instagram?
We all know that most celebs these days are on Insta (how can you miss Ariana Grande, Beyoncé and all the Kardashians), but try and imagine old Hollywood stars transported to 2019 and exposed to the world of social media. Would we be reading Ms. Taylor’s tweets? Would Grace Kelly be ‘gramming?
So just as a bit of fun for this week’s ShareAll post, I thought I’d share my thoughts on what the actresses from the golden age of Hollywood might be sharing on Instagram, complete with follower counts, number of likes and a caption. See what Audrey Hepburn, Bette Davis, Elizabeth Taylor, Grace Kelly, Greta Garbo, Katharine Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe would typically be posting if they were let loose with a smartphone and millions of followers.

What would they be talking about? What would they be promoting? What images would they use? This is all in the name of fun as mentioned and of course, do note that these are NOT real accounts or actual embedded posts (all simply done in Photoshop!) so you can’t actually click on the “View Profile” or “Add comment” parts… please don’t get frustrated with me if you can’t click on them! ; -P
AND as a little something extra for you I’ve found some key pieces to shop in case you’re tempted by Katharine Hepburn’s mannish suits, Marilyn’s actual red lipstick or Elizabeth’s earrings.
Now, go forth and double tap those images [for the purpose of this post that translates as: Please be kind enough to leave me a comment!]
