It's no secret that Madonna was an admirer of Marilyn Monroe, and for her 1984 video for the hit song Material Girl she was heavily inspired by the fashion and dance routine in the song Diamond's Are a Girl's Best Friend - Monroe performed the routine in the 1953 movie Gentleman Prefer Blondes.

This leads me to a unique and impressive 80s fancy dress costume idea. There is no shortage of Madonna costumes available to buy, but few people think of the iconic pink dress as a costume idea. Of course, the outfit can also be used for 1950s style dress-up, too.
The cheapest option is to buy a second hand dress. A search on ebay brought up several pink Marilyn Monroe style dresses at very low prices. However, with ebay listings changing on a daily basis, I make no guarantee that you will find anything, but here is a useful, generic link which should work for UK, U.S. Canada and Australia;
Madonna Marilyn Monroe Pink Dress Costume
The Marilyn Monroe Pink Dress costume shown here is available in four sizes from Small to X-Large. It's the only costume I could find, with every other option being a white dress. The jewellery and wig are not included, but the accessories further down this post match the style well.
I highly recommend searching ebay as there are many top suppliers selling this costume on the site, and the prices are lower than on Amazon. The link below is generic, and will take your to the store in your country (hopefully!).
Here are all the products needed to create the Material Girl video costume. I have linked to Amazon UK and US stores, starting with the UK...
If you're a bit short of cash, then you may want to reconsider creating the Material Girl costume, as a complete look with all the accessories will be pretty expensive. However, if you really want to create an impressive and unique, head-turning fancy dress outfit then this look is absolutely the right choice, and is suitable for 1950s, 1980s, retro, movie and hollywood themed parties and events.
