Marilyn Monroe: The timeless style of the film icon

In glitter dress and with the ukulele on stage, Marilyn Monroe (1926-1962) as Sugar Kane turned Tony Curtis (1925-2010)'s head: Her film role in "Some Like It Hot" is just as legendary as the style that was released on September 4th. Californian who died in August 1962. She is still one of the most photographed women in the world - and that has its (fashionable) reason.

She never had children and yet she set a trend more than 60 years ago that we have been celebrating more and more for some time: the style icon was already attracted to mom jeans in the 60s. Typical: The waistband of mom jeans sits higher on the waist, and the wide-cut legs taper narrowly at the ankles. The high waist makes styling the pants easy. Almost all tops that can be tucked in at the front are suitable for the combination, even thick sweaters. Sneakers, boots or high heels complete the look. Monroe herself liked to combine the comfortable trousers with white oversized shirts or with a tight Carmen blouse that emphasized her curves.

Speaking of curves: Marilyn Monroe was also a true professional when it came to staging her figure in the right way. Her skin-tight corsages caused a stir at the time. Today, the vintage pieces continue to cause gasping, be it from the wearer or the viewer. The film icon was a little more airy on hot days: she often wore long summer dresses with a tight top and wide skirt - a must-have for every wardrobe!

Skin-tight dresses, like the one worn by the blonde in the cult film "Some Like It Hot", are something stars like to present on the red carpet today. Inspired by the hot Monroe look, Kim Kardashian donned an original 60-year-old dress by the actress for the Met Gala in May 2022.

As far as beauty and make-up are concerned, the film icon also set the trend back then: long eyelashes, kissable red lips and lots of blush were a must at the time. Red lips are back in fashion this season, but when it comes to rouge, modern women are now opting for ombré, a make-up technique with different rouge nuances. Models like Elsa Hosk (33), Bella Hadid (25) and many of their colleagues love the minimalist look.
