Acres of print and video footage commemorating the anniversary of her passing have been produced by the media this week, all of which revere her unparalleled iconic status. We especially appreciated The Mirror's Marilyn Memories: Classic archive pictures on 50th anniversary of Marilyn Monroe's death and accompanying reproduction of its original report of the star's death on 5th August 1962.
The Marilyn look is one which so many still aspire to; indeed, one of the most frequent requests we receive from customers is for a dress in the style of the white one she famously wore in the 1955 film The Seven Year Itch, which was sold last year for a staggering £2.8 million.

Back in February, we paid our own homage to Marilyn in a Dollyfrockers' photo shoot in St Andrews when the lovely Hannah Wood captured the star's stunning look to perfection in some of our frockery, with hair and makeup by Sandra Cormack.

Marilyn, it seems, will never go out of fashion, and we'll go on celebrating, and emulating, her inimitable style for years to come.
