    Fascinating video!! Couple things wrong with the Starlet look: too much eyeshadow for a Marilyn look, and the white dress is a daytime summer dress. furs, gloves, and long earrings were for evening. It looks ok to us now, but those items would not be worn together in the 50s.

    I think she looks beautiful in 50's fashions! Also, I laughed so hard when the producer tried using a leafblower and then the camera panned to an audience watching! Very cute 😁

    ...you slept in the robe?
    If you would have taken it off, the silkyness of the night gown wouldn't have gotten caught up in the sheets...

    alright but dont act like faux fur is not bad either. it is straight up plastic, and seeing as plastic pollution is one of the biggest climate concerns of our age, i would totally go for real fur rather than faux fur. ideally no fur at all though

    Decent but Karolina Żebrowska's 1950s Fashion Is Not What You Think It Is video goes into better detail. I do appreciate bringing in a vintage hairstylist.

    The outfits look very expensive! My mother wore the pleated skirt in red with a matching red fine wool sweater. She was working so could afford it. Love your looks

    I know she said that the 70s were her favorite era of the series. But her look definitely screams 50s.

    It's called "The Seven Year Itch"! No one ever seems to know/reference the name of Marilyn's most iconic role as "the girl", always just a focus on the white dress over the subway grate. The movie really launched her career while also causing a riff in her marriage to Joe DiMaggio.
