THE BITE: An amuse-bouche of fashion news

The inimitable Ms. Monroe. Story by Anne Pringle.

Marilyn face-off
Marilyn Monroe became one of the most revered icons in film and  revolutionized the way we look at women’s sexuality – pretty big shoes to fill, but ones both Naomi Watts and Michelle Williams will step into in different upcoming films. Watts will play Monroe in Blonde, based on Joyce Carol Oates’ tale of her most scandalous exploits. Williams will take a different angle, playing Monroe in My Week With Marilyn, which dramatizes the actress’ time in England while shooting 1957’s The Prince and the Showgirl.  (NY Post)

Colour change
If you miss the mood ring craze of the ’90s, this one’s for you: Perfect Formula is releasing a new line of nail polishes that change colour with your changes in body temperature. Cooler temperatures will produce deeper, darker tones and warmer body temperatures will yield brighter, warmer colors. Colour us impressed. (NY Mag)  

Fashionable friends
Last month on the Martha Stewart Show there were a host of fashionable guest stars – the Proenza Schouler designers, Andre Leon Talley, and ELLE’s EIC Robbie Myers – but the talk show host isn’t stopping there. This Thursday, Rodarte’s Laura and Kate Mulleavy will be featured as part of “The Siblings Show.” The sis-duo will be showcasing five of their couture creations and explaining their unique processes.
