Lindsay Lohan Puts on the Marilyn Monroe Wig and Shows Her Goods

February 18th, 2008 // 111 Comments

The photographer who captured the infamous pictures of the late blonde bombshell, Marilyn Monroe, that would collectively be known as “The Last Sitting” recently recreated many of the photos using Lindsay Lohan. The young actress donned a blonde wig for this photo shoot for New York Magazine and little else, posing nude and topless, using sheer scarves to slightly conceal her lady parts. She sat down with the same photographer, Bert Stern, who shot the 1962 pictures of Marilyn because he said he believed “she had a lot more depth to her” than you would probably think from “those teenage movies.”

Lindsay, for her part, considered her participation in the project a no-brainer, saying: “I didn’t have to put much thought into it. I mean, Bert Stern? Doing a Marilyn shoot? When is that ever going to come up? It’s really an honor.” The pictures are pretty amazing, with Lindsay letting it all hang out in her freckled glory, but even at her young age, she already seems way too good at the whole “tragically used-up” bit.

    I don’t think these are good photos at all. Lindsay doesn’t have what Marilyn had. Sorry kittens.

    OH that little orange-skinned trash!!!
    LEAVE MARILYN IN PEACE!!! YOU’re NOT WORTH to even look at her pictures. Try to live your own life for once.

    Wow, I don’t think these photos are good at all . . . not even a little bit. She’s trying way to hard to be sexy/coquettish . . . for Marilyn it came naturally.

    Lindsey is no Marilyn.

    How ironic would it be if this turned out to be Linds last photo-shoot as well

  5. Zekers

    Yeah, I’m disappointed in Stern. Makes me wonder if he’s in financial trouble-I can’t think of another reason for him to massacre his art.

  6. Loob

    Seems like she should have had the opposite reaction. Something like “No way would I do a shoot like that, that can’t possibly be as good as the actual Marilyn one, and will make me look like desperate sloppy seconds by comparison.”

  7. jay

    No matter how hard she tries she will never be the naturally sexy that Ann Margaret and Marilyn Monroe were. She fancies herself in that mold but she’s too desperate appearing. Ironic, since Marilyn WAS desperate for acceptance; but her appeal was natural, unavoidable, innate; as is Ann Margaret. Lindsey just doesn’t have that. She might have managed a natural progession to some level of it if she just wouldn’t try so damned hard, but she’s beat down already. She needs to recoup; I don’t think she can come back at this point.

    She never was that great of a serious actress and her physicality was a drawing point; that is sadly overrated.

    Gee whiz, how old is this girl? Isn’t she hanging a bit low? I mean I look better than that and I’ve nursed 2 two kids! They’re real, they’re fabulous, I’m pushing 50 but who cares! Lindsey Lohan you have made my day!

  9. Bob

    The only thing that Lindsay Lohan has in common with Marilyn Monroe is the substance abuse problem. She’s not attractive enough to do this kind of shoot, what was the photog thinking? LL is nothing special, he would’ve been better off using the late Anna Nicole Smith.

  10. Zekers

    I saw Ann Margaret in a play a few years ago. She is closing in on 70 and still looks, acts and sings better than Lindsay could ever dream of!

  11. I’m not surprised at all if she finds “a job” as a prostitute these day’s!!

  12. Sarah

    Marilyn is lookin’ at you and you WANT to jump in
    those sheets with her and roll around all sexy like.
    And I’m a straight chick.
    LL just looks awkward.
    She has no hips, no curves. I feel like I’m
    looking at underage girl being forced into a photo shoot she didn’t want or know how to do.

    Oh Lindsey, what you won’t do for attention, you little slut. Put your ninnies back in your shirt. You are not sexy. You’re just a punk. You haven’t done one thing to make this world a better place.

  14. Jeanne

    Oh Lindsey, what you won’t do for attention, you little slut. Put your ninnies back in your shirt. You are not sexy. You’re just a punk. You haven’t done one thing to make this world a better place. Bet Momma’s real proud.

  17. grooveva

    Wow I too am disapointed in Stern these are abysmal.

  18. Orion Vonnegut

    I am sorry, but this is so sad. Marilyn was a decade older, yet she exuded a certain vulnerability and allure. LL just looks sad, desperate and 20 yrs. older than she really is.

    Whose ignorant idea was this?

  19. Chaz

    Hey, New York magazine! It’s 2008. Your cover model is washed up. Thought you’d like to know, before you put Shannon Doherty on your “Hot New Faces of TV” issue.

  20. skinny fat

    I’m embarassed for Hohan…she looks like shit.

  21. jbonz

    “I mean, doing a Consuelo Montoya spread? With the same donkey she used? How often does an opportunity like this come up in a girl’s life? Arriba!”

  22. Zelda F.

    Oh Good God! WHY OH WHY do these “actresses” even attempt to replicate those glorious photos of MM??? And ESPECIALLY Lindsay? She looks like a troll trying to be a Goddess… That black & white photo is just plain ICKY!!! SCARY ICKY… They’re ALL ICKY!!! She’s a little girl posing nude, it’s just WRONG!!! WRONG I TELL YOU, WRONG!!! Will someone please alert the social authorities?

  23. Michelle

    I can’t believe how bad these pictures are. Young Lindsey looks so old and used. Ironically, Marilyn was old and used, but looked fresh and innocent in her pictures. Very unflattering pictures of Lindsey.

  24. BK

    I blame the wig and makeup people, and the photographer. Lindsey is very pretty and shapely, and these should have been so much better.

  25. jp

    wow, her frame is straight up and down, no curves at all (and she is at a good weight) The boobs just look kind of sad.

    I’m glad you included the real Marilyn photos here, really shows the difference in charisma. All the props are the same, but Marilyn just “Had it” – and i don’t feel like i need to shower after looking at them.

  26. ella

    These are the worst pictures I’ve ever seen.

  27. Nanc'

    These photos certainly don’t show-off any attributes that Lohan might have. On the other hand, she does have the same lifestyle that Marilyn and Anna Nicole had…uneducated, drug-addicted sluts. Not such a stretch and maybe it’s just because I’m a straight female BUT I don’t see the appeal of Marilyn.

  28. Anne Arkham

    Marilyn had a natural innocence about her. Lindsay doesn’t.

    Also, Marilyn was prettier.

  29. Nanc'

    I agree that Marilyn was prettier – at times.
    Before her boob-job, she had A cups at best and she wasn’t freckled, which I realize is a turn-off for many.
    If you’ve ever read any bios on Marilyn, you might not think her so “attractive”.
    The woman was a mess and spent many days each month, in bed, bleeding all over the sheets (she wouldn’t use tampons) and lying in her own filth (she went days/weeks without showers) and VOMIT from the bubbly.
    Btw, she caught a lot of slack for being “fat” during much of her career too.
    Just sayin’, I don’t see the appeal of Marilyn but I guess ignorance IS bliss when it comes to fantasies. Kinda like I felt about S. Stallone back in the ’80s…until I learned the truth.

    Who is responsible for this total disrespect of THEEE Marilyn Monroe!

    Who in any sane state of mind would have that scraggy talentless ordinary bore Lindsay Lohan attempt to mimic someone who had grace and elegance….A graceful moment for LaLohan would be exiting a nightclub without a camera angle up her nose exposing her oh so “sober living”

    C`mon people, the only thing worse than this would be disrespecting Janis Joplin … UGH.

    It looks like they slapped a dingy wig on her head, attached those plastic eyelashes you get on halloween, threw in some sunlight and said,..Good enough…

    I think she is pretty and you guys are being way to rough on her

  36. Kayla

    Lindsey has disgraced Marilyn Monroe!!! Lindsey is a cheap slut!!! This girl has no talent at all!!! She cannot act, she cannot sing, she can’t even dance1!! She IS NOT A CELEBRITY!!!! She looks so old and used up!!! My God, what do we have to do to get rid of her???! MAKE IT GO AWAY!!!!!

  37. Shootingstar

    Rode hard, put away wet.

  38. Deborah

    She looks okay in a couple of the shots, but as an homage to Marilyn it falls waaay short and too freckled. I don’t understand Sterns need to do this and I wish he would have left well enough alone.

  39. Dani

    First off Marylin Monroe did not have a zillion freckles all over her body. She looks nothing like her and is trying WAY too hard to look sexy. Why is she famous? Oh that’s right for Herbie Fully Loaded and Freaky Friday, the two worst movies. I can;t believe those magazines even let her pose, there are so many other attractive actresses out there, I have no idea why she is popular.

  40. Sharon

    Wow. I never appreciated just how beautiful and how much IT factor Marilyn Monroe had until I saw these horrible copy pics.
    The pics of Lindsay are hollow and lifeless, just like she is.

  41. Romi

    Desperate call: If anybody sees a waist and some good taste, please call Lindsey!

  42. Zelda F.

    Nanc’: eeeeeeeewwwwwwwwwwwwwww…… gosh, I really did not need to know THAT! eeeeeewwwwwwwwwwww…………….

  43. dana

    Oh, so nice, it seemed appeared on interracialsingleonline.com did u add your profile on that dating site? may be you can check it and enjoy more about it…

  44. jimi

    Hmm. You don’t think Marilyn was a cheap slut? You think Marilyn was a better actress? I mean no disrespect, but in some ways Lindsay looks like Merrill Streep in comparison. Having said that, I don’t think these pictures are that flattering . . . nice assets aside. She’s looked more glamourous in other pictures . . . without exposing herself. Not that ‘m complaining.

  45. Sasha

    Thank you nanc and jimi

  46. Katie

    OMG. what a travesty.

    I am really upset. She has marred the beautiful photo shoot by Marilyn. She’ must be spinning in her grave.

  47. cuchulain

    LL looks more like the blonde wife on BIG LOVE! LL is delusional to even attempt to pull this off…good luck. She looks like an idiot!

  48. Mamma D

    I guess they aren’t fake. Otherwise they wouldn’t be sagging like that. Poor LL.

  49. Phil

    Lohan is hot — not as hot as Marilyn, but she is hot

  50. genna

    she couldnt even work out or do a few crunches before the shoot? she looks like a big fat blob laying on the bed…why would anyone even want to touch her?
