We have a sneaking suspicion that many of the people hiring Marilyn Monroe wigs and costumes are men.
However, there’s at least one woman who enjoys dressing up as the screen goddess – Jennifer Lopez.
J.Lo recently showed just how good a Marilyn Monroe costume can look on the right person by slipping into one to give US chat show host George Lopez a very special surprise for his birthday.
Wearing a white dress and Marilyn Monroe wig, she serenaded the host with a version of Happy Birthday in a recreation of the film idol’s performance for John F Kennedy.
There’s no chance of J.Lo’s version becoming as iconic as the original, but it certainly made the chat show host and his audience laugh.
We also suspect that the sight of the curvy singer dressed in a Marilyn Monroe fancy dress costume was welcomed by the show’s male viewers.
