Michelle Williams is receiving raves for her role as Marilyn in the new film “My Week With Marilyn.” Blonde locks, perfect poise on the red carpet, and looking stunning in gold, aren’t the only commonalities Michelle holds with the deceased star. Like Marilyn, Michelle also has a heart of gold.
Dita Von Teese could be the devil to Marilyn Monroe’s angel—and we mean that as a compliment. Dita’s unapologetic curves, impressive vintage dress collection, perfectly coiffed hair, and liquid lined eyes all prove some still like it sizzling hot.
Rumor has it that Gwen Stefani bleaches her hair once a week. Marilyn must have bleached hers often, too, since, like Gwen, Marilyn was a natural brunette. Gwen’s also famous for the red, red lip—a color Marilyn rocked on a regular basis.
Katherine Heigl is wearing a stunning, Marily-esque red, one-shoulder gown here. Her blonde curls look like an almost exact replica of the original blonde bombshell whose style, charm, and grace touched the world.
Katy Perry’s love of all things vintage is very Marilyn, as is her love of a full face of makeup. Here she is in a white Smurf dress that’s flipping up in a very “Seven Year Itch” way. Let’s just hope that Katy doesn’t get the itch with Russell!
Lady Gaga wrote a song about Marilyn’s affair with JFK—Government Hooker—and the pop singer isn’t afraid to reference Monroe in her fashion choices too. Like the famous starlet, Gaga loves stepping out in luxurious furs and vintage shades.
Paris Hilton has confessed her love for Marilyn many times, even singing “Happy Birthday” to Hugh Hefner like Monroe did for JFK. Marilyn would have dug Paris’ curve-hugging white dress and white hot curls, but we’re pretty sure she would have avoided the orange bottle tan.
Rose McGowan always looks classic and beautiful—she easily could have starred in films during Hollywood’s Golden Age. We love how her red heels pop against her pin-up worthy black and white dress. And how Marilyn is her leg jut?
ScarJo was dubbed the new Marilyn when she and her curves were first on display in the sexy opening scene of Lost and Translation. Her fifties-style red carpet choices, hourglass figure, and milky skin all make her a shoe-in for an updated version of Hollywood’s favorite icon.
