Jesinta Franklin channels Marilyn Monroe with plunging neckline at style awards

JESINTA Franklin smouldered at the Women of Style awards in Sydney overnight, wearing a low-cut Versace dress covered in a Marilyn Monroe print.

The 26-year-old model was joined at the star-studded fashion event by a brunette Delta Goodrem, trying out a different look in a tiered, patterned Dolce and Gabanna gown paired with bright red lipstick.

Model and actress Jessica Gomes was chic in Yves Saint Laurent leather shorts, a sheer blouse and a blazer, as Australia’s biggest stars mingled at the Museum of Contemporary Art.
