Marilyn Monroe’s 10 Best Fashion Moments

Today marks the 47th anniversary of the blonde bombshell’s death but her legacy shines stronger than ever – in her own style

Marilyn Monroe

When you think of Marilyn Monroe, what comes to mind? Her standing over a subway grate in a billowy white halter neck dress in The Seven Year Itch? Teetering on high heels in a skintight dress down a train platform in Some Like It Hot? Wearing jeans and a white shirt as she yells at Clark Gable in The Misfits?

It’s easy to get lost in the little girl voice, the platinum-blonde hair, pouting lips, half-closed eyelids, but a big part of Marilyn Monroe’s legacy is her sense of style.

Madonna knew that when she dressed as Marilyn in a pink dress from “Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend.” And now, she’s channeling her biggest inspiration again on the cover of her new album, Celebration, where she’s been rendered to look just like Andy Warhol‘s iconic screen prints.

    This is going to look really bad, but I never saw her as an icon. My family never paid her any mind. We can take her or leave her. :/

    So nice to see pictures of Marilyn with no clevage showing – ah, the days before BOOB jobs.
