She won over a president, appeared on the sleeve of a Beatles record, featured on the cover of Hugh Hefner’s first issue of Playboy and was snapped wearing that William Travilla dress over a subway vent in New York. This revealing shot remains one of Hollywood’s most memorable moments, so much so that Marilyn Monroe and her iconic style have been influencing culture and fashion ever since. My Week with Marilyn is the latest film to chronicle the life of America's most celebrated blonde. Due to hit British cinema screens this Friday, it charts the ups and downs of Marilyn’s glamorous and pressure-filled life: making movies, mixing with the stars and trying to escape all of the above – whilst donning fabulous dresses of course! The new film centres on Marilyn’s developing relationship with assistant director Colin Clark, during a time when her new husband Arthur Miller has left her alone in a foreign country filming one of her first big movies, The Prince and the Showgirl. Director Simon Curtis depicts the Hollywood starlet, not just as a glamorous sex symbol, but as a vulnerable, and often shy young woman who struggled with her fame. Hollywood beauty Michelle Williams is a convincing Marilyn, with her trademark blonde curls, perfect pout and beauty spot, whilst her naturally husky voice and instinctual sexuality enables Michelle to fill Marilyn’s figure-hugging, cleavage-revealing dresses perfectly– as well as some rather big shoes. As well as the statement dresses we all know and love the film legend for, My Week with Marilyn offers a glimpse of the real Marilyn who was just as at home in her capri pants and chunky cardigans. Unlike many other screen sirens of her time, Marilyn favoured neutral tones such as camel, white and black and our favourite Marilyn-esque dress is, of course, the sultry black beauty she wore for the film Some Like it Hot.   Other fashion-worthy roles in the film include the ever-in-demand Emma Watson who plays Marilyn's wardrobe assistant in a range of retro twinsets and tartan dresses, and the sleek and sexy Julia Ormond as Vivien Leigh, another screen siren from Marilyn’s heyday.   Team LBD can't wait for Marilyn’s Hollywood glam, 50s-inspired style to trickle into our wardrobes. One glamorous designer LBD is key. Think quality and timelessness, figure-hugging designs to create ultra-feminine vintage curves. We love Helmut Lang’s long black gowns for evening glamour and Hervé Léger’s bandage dresses for a modern interpretation of her look. So don your best billowing midi dress or show-stopping little black mini fit for a film premiere and watch out for those vents... My Week with Marilyn is in cinemas 25th November. Look out for our exclusive interview with the film’s award-winning costumer designer, Jill Taylor, this Friday. [affiliate category_id=190 per_page=3 show_pagination=false]
