With the sound of waves crashing and the haunting voice of Marilyn Monroe shouting "come on" permeating through the Max Mara runway, we were reminded of the sad ending of the iconic sensitive star, whose life was marred by heartbreak and scandal.  

On the catwalk, bombshell-meets-1950s-urban-collegiate looks were paramount, referencing Monroe's closet passion for reading and poetry. Cashmere sweaters that embraced the waist, pencil skirts paired with tassel loafers, kitten heels and cat-eye glasses were reminiscent of Monroe's performance in How to Marry a Millionaire. 

Models' hair was wildly tousled and the oversized coats were huggingly draped tight like a comforting, protective blanket shielding this vulnerable diva with a propensity for sticky situations and affairs with the wrong man. 

True to Max Mara's minimalist metropolitan style, pastels and camel nudes dominated, while monochrome houndstooth prints punctuated the collection. 

Padded, silky thermal textures were crafted into the skirt and sweater ensembles, catapulting the nostalgic collection into the age of online dating and hashtag love shoutouts. 

Reminding us that even in a more technological era, Marilyn's destiny probably wouldn't have been any different.
