Kylie Jenner Transforms Into Marilyn Monroe For Halloween
Kylie Jenner, 22, decided to take after her sister Kim Kardashian and also don a blonde wig this holiday season. With a blonde bob, skin mole, silky dress and flashy jewelry she stunted an impressive Marilyn Monroe costume.
The look was specifically inspired by Monroe’s 1953 appearance in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, also known as one of the most famous scenes in American film. The pink dress she wore was shocking and ahead of her times. Howard Hawks directed the film and William “Billy” Travilla designed the infamous dress.
Similar to Jenner, Monroe was a high-profile model of the 1950s and had many devout fans. She was one of America’s first sex symbols and millions were impressed by her Hollywood performances. The actress started a career in 1948 and starred in over 24 films. Films she is best known for include The Seven Year Itch, Bus Stop and Some Like It Hot. Monroe has collected a total of eight academy awards in her lifetime, including World Film Favorite and Best Actress (Comedy or Musical).
