Nobody celebrates Halloween like the Kardashian-Jenners and this year, Kylie Jenner didn’t only have one costume but four and it seems that her last one is the best for she dressed up as the iconic sex symbol and actress, Marilyn Monroe and slain it.
The 22-year-old Kylie Cosmetics mogul surprised fans and friends with her fourth Halloween costume by recreating the late actress’ epic look from the 1953 movie, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. In one of the scenes, Monroe was wearing a hot pink dress and diamonds.
So how did Jenner go about it? She wore a strapless hot pink gown with a big bow in the back. She also wore arm-length gloves of the same color and material as the dress. Not only that but she also wore a short blonde wig and of course, a fake mole on her left cheek. A glossy red lipstick and matte eye shadow completed her look. She looked exactly like the late actress as she posted for the V Magazine’s Halloween photoshoot.
Meanwhile, she also posted several photos on Instagram, one of which she captioned that diamonds are a girl’s best friend. She and her stylist, Jill Jacobs, thought that it would be fun to dress up as somebody from pop culture history. They hired Alejandro Collection’s designer, Alejandro Peraza, to recreate a replica of Monroe’s gown which was made by William Travilla for the 1953 movie.
According to Peraza, Jenner has it all and it’s only right that she dressed up like an icon just like Marilyn Monroe. He added that she wanted to show off the same amount of skin as Monroe in the movie. To do that, the designer and his team worked for two weeks straight. They had the fabric custom-dyed for the gloves to make sure they perfectly matched the silk fabric of her dress. It also has a built-in boning as well as a slit in the back for dancing.- Advertisement -
Jenner herself already warned fans that she would be posting photos of her Halloween costumes. On Halloween eve, she recreated The Little Mermaid’s Princess Ariel with her long flaming red wig, sequined green skirt and seashell strapless bra complete with a purse that looked exactly like Flounder from the Disney cartoon.
Kylie Jenner also dressed up as a Playboy bunny during Anastasia Karanikolaou’s Halloween party but before that, they teamed up to recreate Madonna and Britney Spears from their performance during the MTV Video Music Awards in 2003.
