Blue Ivy nails her Marilyn Monroe moment

Could she be any more adorable?!

We'll go ahead and answer that for you. No!

Blue Ivy joined parents Beyoncé and Jay Z at the Louvre museum in Paris, and it looks like they had a ball!

Not only did Bey and Jay try to recreate a few of the museum's most famous statues, but BIC did her own thang and tried to remake one of Marilyn Monroe's best movie moments of all time!

In her little pink dress, Blue Ivy got stuck standing right on a vent, which made her dress poof up!

Isn't she so cute?!

Unfortunately, Bey gave no hint of a baby bump away, but she was wearing a loose-fitting t-shirt! So, that could be proof!

Ch-ch-check out more pics from their outing (above)!

| Filed under: Oops!Fashion SmashionJessica AlbaMarilyn MonroeStreet Style

Jessica Alba almost suffers a wardrobe malfunction!

That was a close one!

It looks like Jessica Alba has taken a page from Marilyn Monroe's book. That's because the actress just skirted by a wardrobe malfunction while on her way to Whole Foods in New York City.

The 33-year-old looked gorgeous in a highwaisted plum skirt paired with a black top covered by an elegant-yet-sporty black blazer.

She matched Wednesday's look with a black and white leopard-print clutch and safety-pinned black heels.

Jessica, who's making her return to Sin City for the sequel, completed the look with a beachy blowout and a middle part.

We just have to say, our favorite part of the whole picture is how unphased she looks as she handles her skirt flying up. Confidence is SEXY!
