Model Amber Rose poses in the upcoming issue of YRB magazine and seems to be channeling a Marilyn Monroe-like look. Photographed by Mike Ruiz, these are easily Amber’s best pictures yet! Amber talks growing up poor, sexuality and how Kanye West saved her life. The south Philly chick dons an amazing set of dresses styled by Darius Baptist with intense eye makeup and red lips by Samuel Paul in this fascinating photo-homage to Monroe with an edgy spin. The model made a similar splash in February when she channeled Grace Jones.

What do you think about Amber Rose’s latest flicks? Sound off!


  1. This look signals a Marylin Monroe look for me because of the wig. A loose wavy bleach blonde bob post 1950’s is arguably an aesthetic and iconographic echo of Marylin Monroe. This look juxtaposes Monroe’s 50’s glam with a more aggressive/edgy representation, which is dope! Your welcomed interpretation is up to you! Enjoy the pics! Thanks!
