Marilyn Monroe Plus Size Halter Dress Costume
An Unforgettable Icon
Did you know that the photographer who took the famous “flying Skirt” photo of Marilyn Monroe was a guy named Sam Shaw? He was actually friends with Monroe from way before either of them were famous. During the shoot of the now-iconic photo, Monroe called out to him with the nickname, “Sam Spade.” Apparently, Marilyn Monroe liked giving everyone nicknames. It was Shaw’s idea to do the shoot that is now one of the most famous photos of all time! And now, you too can have a piece of this iconic moment of American cinema, with this White Plus Size Marilyn Halter Dress.
Just think about it, you could recreate your own “flying skirt” moment with your friends, or do your hair up in the just right style of the time and go to a costume party with a theme of famous people. It’s all up to you—regardless what you do, this dress will be instantly recognizable.
In this look, you’ll look just like the blonde bombshell herself. The white dress has a plunging halter-style V-neckline that leaves your arms free and open. The fabric then gathers below the bust line and flares outward from the hips, giving it a loose, free-flowing appearance. Just be prepared if you’re walking over any subway grates, because you may recreate that famous moment, even if you don’t mean to! Pair this dress with a great set of high heels and 50s style curls to complete the look.
A 50s Blast
So have fun rocking this iconic look for the night. We’d say it’s really hard to try to recreate the bold styles of Marilyn Monroe, but we think you can do it pretty well. Who knows, maybe you’ll even run into Humphrey Bogart or Clark Gable!
