On this day some 47 years ago, the world lost one hell of a saucy minx. We’re talking, of course, about Marilyn Monroe, the buxom blonde icon to end all icons who shagged movie stars, baseball players and presidents alike. (Allegedly, of course.) In an effort to bring out that little bit of Marilyn in all of us, here’s how we suggest paying your respects, sartorially, at least. Lindsay Lohan, we know you’ve already got your notepad out.
- Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, you know. [$78, Kenneth Jay Lane, Shopbop]
- Blow a little wind beneath this bustier dress and you’ll be recreating Marilyn’s white dress “fiasco” all over again. Except in peach, which we think is similarly adorable. [$90, Topshop]
- Retro one-piece, anyone? [$125, Carmen Marc Valvo, Victoria's Secret]
- Plump those big ‘ol lips with some shiny pink gloss. It’s what Marilyn would have wanted. [$30, Dior, Sephora]
