Molly Sims attends The High Line’s Opening Summer Benefit presented by Calvin Klein Collection at High Line Park.  She wears a tulle inflated dress from Dolce & Gabbana’s new collection decorated with a screened image of Marilyn Monroe’s face.  D&G embraced Marilyn’s image this year, plastering it on many pieces at their runway show in March.  Of course we have seen a lot of Monroe on Megan Fox’s forearm as of late.  Will Marilyn make a comeback?  If so I blame the resurgence in Marilyn iconography on the 1980′s obsession. It seems like Elvis or Marilyn were on every 4th t-shirt in 1985.  (below Robert Smith of The Cure wears a Marilyn t-shirt in 1980 and Richey James Edwards of The Manic Street Preachers shows off his many Marilyn tattoos in 1990).  Do you vote this look tacky or timely?
