I have always loved Elvis because of my mom. She prefers the young thinner 50's Elvis but I go for the end of his life rhinestone boated and sweaty I am Vega opera singer version. That guy no matter how bad it got always had his voice. The bombastic behavior on and off stage takes the cake for me.

Naked with just that cute apron? Priceless.

Katherine Hepburn's classy style.

But since I have curves as oppose to angles, it will likely be anything worn by late 50's Marilyn Monroe.

(After having done costuming for a 1950's adult-cast play, I really don't like the era's style ... it's so BORING.)

Out of the list, I would go with James Dean, because I love him. But what about Marilyn Monroe? She is after all the definition of sex in the 1950's.

For 50's icon, I would go with Marilyn Monroe. Great clothes for us curvy girls.

Since I pretty much have no idea how any of those people dressed, I have no idea.. I guess I'd rather go naked.

Mmmm, I'd wear June's clothes out on the town and then spend the next morning vacuuming in pearls.
