Sports Illustrated cover-girl Camille Kostek transformed into Marilyn Monroe for Halloween.
In the latest post on her Instagram page, Camille is wearing one of Marilyn’s classic looks. She rocks a curve-hugging white evening gown with a plunging neckline. Her makeup is understated save for some winged eyeliner and bright red lipstick. She accessorizes the look with a white stole, gloves and a sparkly clutch purse.
“Some love the gory and goblin Halloween, I prefer the Glam,” she wrote in the caption before adding that she wore the costume to Heidi Klum’s Halloween party.
In the comments, fans raved over her costume.
“Marilyn would be proud,” one fan wrote. “Stunning always!!”
“Absolutely stunningly beautiful,” another follower added.
“Elegant and tasteful and of course stunning,” a third fan gushed.
“You crushed it, babe,” a fourth Instagram user commented.
In her stories, the former Boston Patriots cheerleader shared a behind-the-scenes glimpse at how the look was created. Instead of using a wig, her hairstylist opted to curl and pin her hair to give the illusion of a shorter cut similar to Marilyn’s.
Camille also revealed that she watched a couple of Marilyn Monroe performances before she dressed up as her.
“Making sure I really get into character for tonight. Studying the icon that I’m about to embody,” Camille said as she watched the iconic scene from Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, where Marilyn sings “Diamonds Are A Girl’s Best Friend.”
She also channeled Marilyn on her way to the event. In one clip, she sings “Diamonds” in a seductive manner, reminiscent of the pop culture icon.
Camille also took fans inside Heidi’s party via her story. Guests were greeted by green female ghouls who popped out of hiding when they entered.
Longtime followers of Camille will know that she loves to dance. She regularly shares videos of herself busting a move. So, she didn’t let the classy costume stop her from having fun.
“Marilyn twerks,” she captioned one clip in which she’s gyrating her hips to hip-hop music.
She also managed to snag a photo with the party’s host, who was unrecognizable in an elaborately gory costume that looks to be inspired by both aliens and zombies.
At the end of the night, Camille confirmed that she had a great Halloween as her icon, Marilyn Monroe.
“Such an incredible night,” she said after the makeup and costume had been removed. “I don’t often celebrate Halloween but this was worth it.”
