OUTFIT OF THE WEEK: DIAMONDS ARE A GIRL'S BEST FRIEND

By Jesse L. Brooks

 

If there are two things we love, it's high fashion and Halloween; and this week's outfit is all about making those two worlds collide. One of the most beloved stars of all-time is none other than Marilyn Monroe.

From her bombshell good looks to her unforgettable film costumes, Marilyn will forever be a Hollywood legend.

We wanted to pay tribute to the late starlet with a fashion infused Halloween costume that reeks of glitz and glamour. Starting things off is a runway piece from the fabulous designing duo Viktor & Rolf. This dramatic bow back column gown immediately reminded us of Marilyn's iconic scene in "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes" and was an obvious choice for our look. We don't really see much of Marilyn's shoes in the film, so any pair of black heels will do. But we do see plenty of jewels! Since this ensemble is created in the spirit of Halloween, there's no need to break the bank on accessorizing. The key pieces in Marilyn's glittering look is a blinged out choker, chunky bracelets, and shimmering drop earrings. All of which we found for reasonable prices online (although we did splurge on the cuffs). The next most important thing to nail is her beauty look. Ms. Monroe's makeup is pretty classic glam, but the most important features are her long, wispy lashes and her signature cherry red lip. We also wanted to add in a hint of black magic. Since the dress does not have the dark detailing on the bow as it is seen in the film, we chose a pair of onyx hued opera gloves as the finishing touch on this old Hollywood look. Just looking at this outfit will have you singing "Diamonds Are A Girls Best Friend" right into Halloween night.
