Next Historic Pony: Rarity as the beautiful Marilyn Monroe. Of course she reads the Equestria Daily, how else does she stay up to date on all the latest gossip and season 3 rumors?
So, I've had the idea to draw this one for awhile. There's actually a Marilyn Monroe "Lustre Creame Shampoo" ad at my barber's shop and I just love old ads from that time. So, I tried to give this pic the feeling on an old 60's ad. Also created a fake EQD newspaper based on a season 3 rumor.
So...as usual I messed up, lost the original picture of the dress refferenced, and cannot link it. :< If anyone knows which dress this is, where Marilyn wore it, and could find me a pic to link here, I'd appreciate it!
Also, the title is the same as one of Marilyn's most famous scenes in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, you should watch it here: [link]
Seriously, it needs more views. Don't disappoint my loyal bronies.
Also...even though I added in alot of details like Marilyn's famous mole and even converted a few of her movies to ponydom...I refused to give Rarity red lips. Why? The Sonic Rainboom episode scarred me for life and inspired me never to give a pony lipstick. Just...just send that image to the moon WHAT WERE YOU THINKING RARITY!?
I actually showed a few WIP's of this to my Non-Brony friends and....they thought it was sexy????
I think my art has hidden powers.
Anyway, I hope you guys like this. But don't like it too much!

Being the derp that I am, I forgot to add a paper texture to the pic as I originally planned. Fixed now. EDIT 2
Found the original dress: [link]
Apparently it was red, which I did not know because I used a monochrome photo, but I like this purple on Rarity. It suits her. :>
