Kendall Jenner Dons Blonde Bob for Marilyn Monroe Costume: 'Happy Birthday, Mister President'

Kendall Jenner is serving looks this Halloween.

The 27-year-old model opted for a simple but chic costume this year, hiding her dark tresses under a curly blonde bob to pay homage to legendary model-actress Marilyn Monroe.

Rather than recreate one of the blonde bombshell's iconic gowns (or wear the original, like sister Kim Kardashian did), Jenner emulated a more casual — but equally iconic — Monroe look.

The Kardashians star appeared to take inspiration from the pin-up model's iconic 1953 Life magazine photo shoot, in which the then-26-year-old sported a simple black turtleneck and white cigarette pants — and, of course, her signature curly bob.

Jenner embodied the Hollywood starlet in a sultry Instagram post on Sunday, which she cheekily captioned, "Happy birthday, mister president," a nod to the iconic moment when Monroe serenaded President John F. Kennedy in 1962.

The model's post comes a day after she hosted a star-studded Halloween bash at the Chateau Marmont with a guest list including Billie EilishChanning TatumZoë Kravitz and Charli D'Amelio.

Jenner has a long history of providing Pinterest-worthy costume inspiration on Halloween.

Her 2018 witch getup, for example, left purple sparkly dresses and broomsticks behind in place of something much more chic. Ever the trendsetter, Jenner dressed in a simple black dress, sheer gloves and a witch hat.

Before Monroe, Jenner channeled another blonde icon: a fembot from the Austin Powers franchise. The look consisted of a dramatic blonde wig, fluffy pink minidress and matching heels.

Though the Kardashian-Jenner family tends to take Halloween seriously and go all out, Jenner opted for a lighter approach to the holiday when she dressed as a cucumber in 2022. The costume was a nod to the viral moment when she displayed her awkward knife skills in the kitchen on her family's reality show.

Jenner posted a TikTok in the funny costume, jokingly set to an audio of Lindsay Lohan's Mean Girls character saying, "In girl world, Halloween is the one night a year when a girl can dress like a total slut and no other girls can say anything about it."
