With voluminous blonde curls and figure-hugging dresses, the singing popstars stole the show by providing the glam factor for the evening. Love the Marilyn-inspired bombshell look? Well, we've put together our own modern-day version. For tips on how to achieve this look keep reading...
I've spent half my day trawling through this amazing vintage website called Daddy O's which is an affiliate of Stop Staring Clothing another fantastic website for vintage clothing. For a truly 50s screen siren look this 'After Hours Dress' for $59.95 is perfect, I especially love the pink bow detail. Add some cute black peep-toes from Office for a bargain £5 and patent bow clip purse for just £2. Alternatively, this gorgeous Hollywood red and white polka dot frock for $84.95 is worth lashing out on. But you will save money if you match it with these satin slingbacks also from Office for £5 and this vanity bag from Accessorize for £30. With such great vintage sites around there is no reason why you can't pull off this style yourself!
