Elle Fanning dressed like Marilyn Monroe — but it’s not what you think

October 24, 2017

Who doesn’t love a bold outfit? Even if it’s simply worn on occasion, an unexpected look can be the pep in our step that we need to feel embodied in our glamour. And since Halloween is right around the corner, we have an extra reason to wear something surprising. Just look at Elle Fanning’s Versace dress, a pop art tribute to Marilyn Monroe that’s inspiring us to wear our brightest hues this season.

Who doesn’t love a bold outfit? Even if it’s simply worn on occasion, an unexpected look can be the pep in our step that we need to feel embodied in our glamour. And since Halloween is right around the corner, we have an extra reason to wear something surprising. Just look at Elle Fanning’s Versace dress, a pop art tribute to Marilyn Monroe that’s inspiring us to wear our brightest hues this season.
Elle wore the head-turning look to the third annual InStyle Awards in Los Angeles, but you don’t need to be on the red carpet to channel your inner bombshell à la Elle.
Jon Kopaloff/ GettyElle’s dress was straight off the spring/summer 2018 runway, and featured Warhol’s iconic screen prints of Monroe on a full-length dress, with plenty of crystalline detailing along the bust. Although Elle told People that she was nervous about wearing such an adventurous look, she knew that it was now or never, and we’d say the results are pretty striking.
Elle even matched her sandals to the dress, really going for the “more is more” aesthetic we so appreciate.
Thank you @instylemagazine for the 2017 Breakthrough Style Star award ⭐️ a gorgeous (hot) LA night at the Getty!

Elle goes on to explain her choice of dress to People, saying,
“This was kind of a no-brainer, I must say. [When I saw it] I was like, ‘I have to wear this.’ It has Marilyn Monroe on it and I’m obsessed with her. It’s Halloween soon, so I was kind of also doubling as Barbie.”
Jon Kopaloff/ GettyIn Elle’s words, this look is “a Barbie vibe and a little Brigitte Bardot,” which we couldn’t agree with more. With a waist-synching silhouette, her hair done with ’70s-style bangs, and green eyeliner done in a cat-eye, this look isn’t subtle, but why should it be?
We think Elle looks like an icon, and we hope she never stops believing in her fashion intuition.
