Channeling Marilyn

Marilyn Monroe Mania has landed in the UK. 

With celebrities like Rihanna, Lindsay Lohan and Kate Moss all wearing her signature do and all giving us her sultry stare on the cover of Vogue and New York magazines, Now is time to celebrate our love for one of Fashions biggest icons.

Dior was ahead of the game as they managed to magically bring Marilyn back to life in their new J'Adore Dior Advert with Charlize Theron. 

 And now of course My Week with Marilyn has hit the big screens in the UK. Michelle Williams looks Amazing as the famous icon and definitely does the character justice.

To channel Marilyn the easiest way is to add a pencil skirt. The photo above shows how easily the pencil skirt can be dressed down for the day as it is generally seen as formalwear. Topshop and Asos currently have a fantastic collection of different colours, lengths, materials and patterns so there will be one that will fit in with your wardrobe perfectly.

Let me know how your channelling Marilyn by tweeting me photos of your outfits @L_Loves24
