These old-school Hollywood style photos for Vogue Italia are part of a glamorous Marilyn Monroe-inspired editorial. This series is called 'Bombshell Beauty' and incorporates all kinds of retro style aspects.

These shots jump back and forth between color and elegant black and white captures. In each seductive shot, the lovely blond model is wearing red lipstick and has her hair styled in gentle waves. This editorial features some high-waisted fashion, which Marilyn wore constantly. There are fur coats, cone-style bras and red leather get-ups in this retro glam series.

This fabulous editorial seems to be a kind of homage to beauty icon Marilyn Monroe and her bold, sexy style. Monroe is pretty much the original bombshell beauty, so this series is aptly named.
