Style Icon of the Day: Marilyn Monroe

Marilyn Monroe is without a doubt a style icon- who else do you think of when you hear of a platinum blonde with fire-red lips. She was the quintessential blonde bombshell and she got to style icon status by fitting her voluptous curves in figure-hugging dresses in racy colours- especially red. She oozed sex appeal, yet at the same time she made her look very classic, which would be emulated for years to come. Here are my favourite outfits from Ms. Monroe, and a few items so you too, can be a bombshell, whether or not you have those famous blonde locks...

Jersey Maxi Dress
Precis Petite
£29.00


Halter Plunge Neck Cut Out Dress
Lipsy
£55.00


Red Halterneck Dress
Blue Banana
£39.99

 The iconic photo of Marilyn just epitomizes what she is famous for- being sexy yet still classy, with this white halterneck 50s style dress being alluring as well as classic.





Jersey Grecian Mini Beach Dress
ASOS
£25.00

















Pleated Silk Satin Twill Gown
Marchesa
$462.00

It was difficult finding a gown like Marilyn's that was not designer and super-expensive, but this was the best I could do, and I absolutely love this dress!
