’50s Icon : My Week With Marilyn (2011)

My Week with Marilyn banner

It might be 70 years has passed when Marilyn Monroe, the American actress, singer and sex symbol was on her golden days. In 2011, Michelle Williams earned her Oscar nomination for her performance as Monroe in My Week With Marilyn. The based-on-memoir movie shows a slight of her life as an icon. There Williams was supported by excellent make up and wardrobe. Though the focus was Marilyn and her image as quite a sexy actress on her time, her costume design showed a blend of class and glamor in the ’50s era.

This edition of fashion from movies, I decided to highlight Monroe’s look in My Week With Marilyn, where Williams lived as her on screen amazingly. It seems that her must-have-items were white heels and shawl. Here are wardrobes :

    • They definitely did a good job working for her wardrobe. And Williams lived her character almost too real. Thanks, Sati. My fave is the cropped pants. The coat is a great choice as well.

  2. All of these collections are fantastic! I’m a huge fan of Marilyn’s style so I like working things like pencil skirts, trench coats, and sunglasses into my everyday style. They’re nice, classic pieces create a little bit of a vintage style without looking like you’re on your way to a costume party.

    Thank you so much for participating in the Fashion in Film blogathon!
