5. Anna Nicole Smith

Anna Nicole Smith’s career took off when Guess hired a young Anna Nicole to emulate Jayne in their now classic ad campaign from early 90s. Although being compared to Marilyn Monroe a lot, to me she has more similarities with Jayne.

“I just feel a connection with Marilyn Monroe. I just love her. I just completely feel what she went through.”
