Diamonds are a Girls Best Friend by Whitestar1802 Diamonds are a Girls Best Friend by Whitestar1802
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?

:lol: 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!?

*ahem*

I actually showed a few WIP's of this to my Non-Brony friends and....they thought it was sexy???? :O_o: I think my art has hidden powers.

Anyway, I hope you guys like this. But don't like it too much!

Ads used for inspiration: [link] [link]

EDIT: 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. :>

Okay, 1. love that dress, mostly because I freaking love anything purple.

2. Props on the shading on tone. It makes it look a lot like from that era.

3. Rarity as Marylin Monroe, genius!

P.s. It's not a mole, everyone, it's a Beauty Mark.

Nice work.
But I miss some reflections in Rarity's eyes and the paper texture should have been on the newspaper part on the bottom-right too. Also I think that the text is a bit too sharp and too dark.

Oh my god. You don't know who Chuck Yeager is?
He's the first person to have ever broken the sound barrier. Just like Rainbow Dash was the first to ever perform a Sonic Rainboom.
