Marilyn Monroe was a woman of style with the power of seduction and many women try to emulate her today.

And it appears that Katherine Heigl was feeling inspired by the silver screen legend as she stepped out to the shops.

The 33-year-old actress donned a flowing oyster-coloured pleated skirt as she popped to the shops in Los Feliz, Los Angeles.

The piece of clothing resembled Marilyn's white dress that made history when it blew up in the 1955 film The Seven Year Itch.

Katherine teamed the shiny skirt with a tight top to emphasis her curves and she wrapped a scarf around her neck.

The New Year's Eve actress stepped out in a pair stappy heels as she hit the shops to pick up some food.

The former Grey’s Anatomy star has a three-year-old daughter Nancy Leigh, known as Naleigh, who she and husband of five years Josh also adopted, before welcoming five-month-old Adelaide.

But the adorable girls were left at home as Katherine ran her errands.

She is currently preparing for the release of her new movie The Big Wedding.
