Hollywood-Glamor-CostumesAre you ready to go for a vintage glamor look for this year’s Halloween costume? Then Marilyn Monroe is your best bet. The glamor look she presented is the ultimate in the Hollywood 1950’s era. The costuming is easy and the makeup is always fun.

Marilyn Costume Dresses

There are multiple styles of dresses that work for a Marilyn Monroe costume. The famous white dress, when she stands over an air shaft and dress blows up showing off those gorgeous legs of hers, is one of the most traditional. But there is also the fun of the formal long dresses that she wore for various films and in promotional photos. My favorite is her Secret Wishes dress in pink. Even if you have beautiful legs, a long dress might be your preference. Of course, it could depend on the type of party you are costuming yourself for. Either way, here are those two classic dresses.

Accessories for that Glamor Hollywood Costume

The dress is just the beginning, though. We gals all know that accessories make the outfit. The Marilyn Monroe accessories include those fun things like the blonde wig and great 1950’s high heels and the jewelry. Remember, diamonds are a girl’s best friend according to our famed star. Personally, I think she was right about that. Diamonds are just about my favorite jewelry to wear for glamorous Halloween costumes. Don’t we all love those glittering accents?

This is a great set of rhinestone jewelry. It’s perfect to add your glamor Hollywood look to really dress it up. It includes a beautiful triangle-shaped drop necklace and a set of dangle earrings. What could be a better way to show off your Marilyn look?
