1. Red lipstick
Simple! Red lippy is a bold and classy statement. This make up staple of Hollywood will bring out the glamour in all the girls.

Beauty spots are a simple touch that add an instant touch of the sultry Marilyn. All you need is eyeliner and voila! To complete the look get the girls who decide to channel their inner Marilyn to wear a fun and floaty Marilyn dress to top it off.
3. Diamonds are a girls best friend.
Some sparkly frosting will help add the look. Think Andy in how to lose a guy in 10 days and that STUNNING yellow gown! Pearls will also create an Audrey look.
4. Cigarette Holders
These are great for photos! Also perfect for gesturing with and an instant feeling of sophistication.
5. Little Black Dresses
Black dresses and a black hen party dress code is always a classic. Asking everyone to wear a classic LBD will take the pressure off any ladies who might not have the funds or time to put together some random theme.
