Bert Stern was the last photographer to shoot Marilyn Monroe in a shoot that became known as “The Last Sitting” that occurred in 1962, six weeks before her untimely death.

Here are some of the original photos of Marilyn posing in “The Last Sitting”:
:
New York Magazine, Bert Stern, and Lindsay Lohan have recreated that famed shoot, and while nothing will compare to the original and Lindsay Lohan would not be my first choice to pose as Marilyn, it is quite good. In the accompanying interview Lindsay speaks ironically about the costs of fame, but is a bit defiant when posed the question why some pay the price and others don’t. Lohan is adamant that she won’t share Marilyn’s fate, but any other answer would be disturbing from someone so young.

    Thanks for sharing! I don’t think Lindsay has anything near the charisma of Marilyn, but the photos are nice.

    dont think i like it….sorry. She looks a bit heavy in the pic where shes lying on bed. MARYLIN MONROE is hard to do…not many can imitate her.

    she is a bad choice i think all around, like i said in the post i would not have booked her.

    she is definitely more voluptuous than marilyn was at the time of the shooting…Marilyn was very thin at that time in her life.

    i hate the shot of her on the bed, the one with the yellow/gold roses, and the veil…the rest i really like though nothing will compare to the original

    The photos didn’t turn out as badly as I had anticipated, but the one on the bed is not the most flattering. Lindsay definitely doesn’t have her charisma, but she’s brave for taking on Marilyn.
