Bella Hadid Just Channelled Marilyn Monroe In a Super High-Slit Dress

The model has a signature style.

When it comes to fashion, Bella Hadid has a signature style, and her latest look is no exception. Wearing a fitted white gown, tapered at the waist, with red lips, and a perfectly coifed long bob, Hadid channelled one of Marilyn Monroe's most memorable looks.

Hadid favors floor length gowns with impressive slits, so when she attended the Bulgari Party in Venice this week, she chose a stunning outfit. Here are some of the best dresses she's ever worn, with the highest, and most insane, leg slits.
