Watch Kendall Jenner Do Her Best Marilyn Monroe Impersonation
Kendall Jenner is hot off the fashion week runways (even nabbing the title of Instagram’s most-liked model in the process) and paying homage to a style legend. The 21-year-old has a new Marilyn Monroe-inspired photoshoot and short film for LOVE Magazine that’s proving diamond’s really are a girl’s best friend.
Sporting sultry looks from lingerie brand La Perla (the reality star is also the face of their spring 2017 campaign) and a pearl Chanel necklace, Jenner is pinup perfection in a stylized two-minute short for the magazine.
The sexy shoot, directed by London photographer Rankin and styled by LOVE editor Katie Grand, was teased by the publication on Twitter early Monday.
As Grand told the Daily Mail, “Kendall had come to London for the LOVE 17 launch [to photograph] the cover stars, and Rankin hadn’t shot with her before, and had really wanted to make this video with her. She had the time, so we just did it. It was a super fun day as ever with Kendall.”
A fun day indeed! The Keeping Up With the Kardashians superstar is featured jumping and laughing while showing off her super-fit figure in a range of looks, including a red and white floral Miu Miu one-piece with a Humphrey Butler princess tiara, a black plunging William vintage YSL V-neck and wide-brimmed Lock & Co. hat, and a pink La Perla Plumetis triangle bralette ($95) with a transparent white shawl.
The supermodel lip-synced to the Monroe classic, “Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend,” and aced some of the icons famous lines from Let’s Make Love and The Seven Year Itch.
