Old Hollywood Glamour: Forever Marilyn Dresses

Whatever people might think of Marilyn, the one thing nobody can contest is that she was glamorous. A generation of Glam Girls had gone before her, but she took glamour to a whole other level. Countless have imitated her look and style, but she always remains the touchstone. Rarely a season goes by that doesn't include its share of Marilyn dresses. What better time than this fall, the "Old Hollywood Season", to wear a little Marilyn ourselves?
