What woman does not want to imitate the persona of the quintessential American glamourous and sexy singer, model, and actress Marilyn Monroe. Her most copied look is the white halter dress from the 1955 film, "The Seven Year Itch." Additionally, the hot pink strapless gown with long elbow-length pink gloves reminiscent of her performance of "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend" in the movie "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes" is also a well-loved choice. For any Marilyn Monroe costume, a blond wig and, of course, diamond jewellery is a must.
