Rose McGowan as Clara Bow. Nice dress, but… $3637?

That photo of MM has always bothered me; they didn’t try to make her look like Clara at all. The 60s version of the 20s – all fringe.
Rose McGowan looks gorgeous. But nothing can compare to the original. ^_^

Yes, Rose looks a whole lot better than Marilyn, whose outfit is better suited for a costume party than for an authentic flapper.

I couldn’t agree more, Their attempt with Marilyn looks much more pre-packaged fancy dress outfit than flapper. I do love the tone of the photo of Rose though, although once again neither have the rough around the edges vibe that Clara pulled off!
