A day with Marilyn

New York: With Marilyn Monroe as her muse, Jenny Packham’s collection was inspired by her films, style, and attitude. Her body con screen siren style in sheath midi dresses and fit and flare gowns were adorned with ornate embellishments and floral appliqué. More casual styles were crisp and clean in basic slip dresses and strapless jumpsuits with silk jackets and coats draped over the shoulder. The collection was overall colourful, confident, and enticing, just like Marilyn.–Jaclyn Jones
