Her look has inspired millions of women across the globe for decades - but with My Week With Marilyn set to sweep undefeated through awards season, Marilyn Monroe's timeless glamour has never been hotter.

Played with goosebump-inducing brilliance by an uncannily on-the-button Michelle Williams, the much-hyped flick has inspired designers in every major fashion capital, with the spring catwalks an homage to the tragic star's signature look.

Wiggle dresses, full skirts and bombshell gowns that showed off Marilyn's infamous curves were key to the new season collections, tempered by cute Capri pants, cropped shirts and accessories fit for a silver-screen icon - and the high street is packed with Monroe-perfect pieces. Get set for your close-up, ladies!
