Marilyn Monroe - Tastemaker Status

Get the iconic bombshell’s look with timeless (& bold) pieces

Best known for her revealing white halter dress billowing over a subway grate, the Hollywood scarlet also loved a good cigarette pant, slinky sweater, and understated pieces. Top off the look with some sculpted curls and a red lip, and you’re ready for any subway grate or stiff breeze that comes your way.
