Forever 21's latest collection pays homage to two Hollywood legends as well as their unique, iconic styles.

The new lineup comes as a celebration of Marilyn Monroe and Elvis Presley, and launched at the end of October.

To showcase looks from the Forever Legends collection, Forever 21 cast a range of diverse models and influencers that includes La'Tecia Thomas, Lilli Johnson and Jaxon Rose.

Each participant was photographed on a set consisting of a green stage, curtain and a microphone.

"I'd name my rock band Burn City and I would name it that because that's where I'm from ... Melbourne ... Burn City," Thomas said in a video captured during the shoot where models were asked what they would call their rock band if they had one.

Johnson also chimed in saying, "If I had a rock band, I would probably call it Northern Exposure because I'm from the north and Northern Exposure is like a quality TV show."

Stand-out pieces from the line, which retails starting at $9.99, include tees with portraits of Monore and Presley printed on them, cat-eye sunglasses and face masks with famous sayings from Monroe, such as "I am good, but not an angel."
