Introducing the latest chapter in Katie Grand and Kendall Jenner’s long-standing Love affair: a video in which the latter channels America’s eternal (tragic) sweetheart, Marilyn Monroe. In the Rankin-lensed short, the one-time Love photographer lip syncs to Monroe’s greatest hits whilst modeling provocative retro looks, the most notable being a cutout Miu Miu bodysuit paired with a diamond tiara, diamonds being a girl’s best friend and all. Jenner’s Marilyn-esque red lip comes courtesy of makeup artist Lisa Eldridge; her ringlets are the work of hairstylist Samantha Hillerby.
While YouTube viewers were quick to note that Grand could’ve chosen a curvier model to channel the voluptuous actress, we think Jenner does a pretty solid Marilyn impersonation (although no one lip syncs “Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend” quite like Nicole Kidman). If anything, the video is a testament to how far Jenner has come since her 2014 audiovisual Love debut. (Remember the awkward, reserved girl who jerked around to Katy Perry’s “California Girls”? Neither do we.)
