Marilyn Monroe’s on-screen costumes are almost as iconic as her.

Suffice it to say, “Blonde” costume designer Jennifer Johnson felt an enormous amount of pressure to get those dresses right for the Netflix film, streaming Wednesday. “Blonde” may be a fictionalized version of her story, but the costumes are ripped from reality.

The vast majority of the frocks Ana de Armas wears in the film, from the white pleated “Seven Year Itch” number to the pink “Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend” gown, are recreations that Johnson and her team had to make without the actual reference garment on hand.
