* In ''Anime/PorcoRosso'', this happens during Gina's flashback to when Porco was human and taking her for a plane ride as teenagers, to both Porco and Gina's embarrassment.



* The TropeCodifier and iconic example, of course, is Creator/MarilynMonroe's white dress in ''Film/TheSevenYearItch''. However, Kelly [=LeBrock's=] scene from ''The Woman in Red'' is also well known, and is frequently parodied in Europe (particularly Italy), perhaps because ''The Woman in Red'' itself is nearly a shot-for-shot remake of the 1976 French film ''Un éléphant ça trompe énormément'', also known as ''Pardon Mon Affaire''.

The TropeNamer and most iconic example, of course, is Creator/MarilynMonroe in ''Film/TheSevenYearItch'' standing over the subway vent (see picture). As such, a common [[StockParodies stock parody]] includes having the character adopt Monroe's pose from the scene.

** A commercial set during the filming of the movie has a cranky Marilyn mess up the maneuver, then complain about the improbability and inconvenience of a woman wearing heels while standing on a subway grate. Even after a break for Snickers gets Marilyn in the proper mood to complete the scene, the man operating the fan underneath the grate admits [[ItWillNeverCatchOn doubting that it will make the final cut]].[[note]]This commercial featured Creator/WillemDafoe as the cranky Marilyn, manipulated StockFootage of ''The Seven Year Itch'' as post-Snickers break Marilyn, and Creator/EugeneLevy as the man operating the fan.[[/note]]
