Lindsay Lohan Channels Marilyn -- Again!

Splash News Online

Lindsay Lohan’s latest photo shoot, a Marilyn Monroe-inspired pictorial for Spanish Vogue shot by photographer Alix Malka in the Hollywood Hills Wednesday, speaks to the actress’ current career ambitions. “The theme is glamor, cinematic, making a movie in Hollywood,” the shoot’s hair stylist Andy LeCompte, who tended to Lohan’s blonde wig, tells PEOPLE exclusively. “And Lindsay wants to focus on her career and get back to doing films, and this was a really cinematic shoot. It felt like we were making movie. The Hollywood sign was even in the background.” LeCompte, who’s been tending to Lohan’s tresses for several years, says the shoot “had a Marilyn Monroe-esque vibe,” adding, “there was definitely the conversation of Lindsay saying [she’s] done it before, and that’s one reason we tried to do it a little bit different. I created a wig with darker roots, a little bit of Marilyn and Jayne Mansfield. Putting on a character is very inspiring for her. She loved it. She was putting on such a character. She’s always game to experiment with that.” At the shoot giving her moral support, was her BFF, stylist Patrick Aufdenkamp, as well as her sister Ali, 15. Lohan, 22, was a professional, says LeCompte: “She came on time, she was really simple to work with. Lindsay has a reputation for showing up late, but now that’s in the past. Now she comes on time.” And what about her thin frame and eating habits, which have come under increased scrutiny lately? Says LeCompte: “She looked great. She eats plenty. She doesn’t stop eating when she’s on a shoot. The first thing she does when she arrives is eat.” Lohan is expected to grace the cover of Spanish Vogue this fall. — David Caplan

Lindsay Lohan is Marilyn Monroe? Are you serious? Marilyn had style, curves…she’s to skinny and to pale.

Sorry linds, but you have to EAT if you want to look like Marilyn.

She looks like she just rolled out of bed.

This isn’t attractive, at all.

Sorry Lindsay, you should go back to acting. Modeling isn’t really your thing. :(

What a horrible portrayal of Marilyn Monroe. Anna Nicole Smith was the best at portraying Marilyn Monroe.

She can’t hold a candle to Marilyn Monroe. Stop sullying Marilyn’s undeniable worldwide sex appeal.

Why is Lindsay always channeling somebody, doesn’t she have her own personality? As for attempting to channel MM – MM had curves, chest, hips, she wasn’t just a flat board. If you try to attempt to channel MM in the future, please eat. Lindsay might be attractive, but couldn’t she just try to be her own?

What the world? Marilyn had much sex appeal… Lindsey don’t even have a butt… come on now… can’t be compared at all. She looks ridiculous. Whoever decided on taking these picture or came up with this idea, must be smoking the same crack pipe same LiLo b/c this is KrAzY!

Try another channel Lindsey. At my worst I look more like Marilyn then she does. It is insulting to Marilyn Monroe to have Lindsey pose as her. Please show me the picture where Marilyn ever looked like this.

Lindsay or Anne Nicole are No Marilyn Monroe.

Lindsay should give it up and act.
Marilyn is a Legend.
Even in death people are still trying to cash in on her.

Tess on

I’m sorry but her career is over. Everyone will always remember her mugshot and they won’t ever take her seriously again. I know she thinks that if she idolizes Monroe enough she will become her but I’m sorry you just can’t be taken seriously.

Marilyn is so much better the lindsey lohan, and she can totally act better i dont care what anyone thinks either

Chuck on

Hey folks – if we want another Marilyn Monroe
look a like… a search for “Kellie Pickler”
Kellie looks just like M.M. at times and she sure has the body for the job !

She does not look like Marilyn Monroe. Britney could be made to look more like her.

Its like you read my thoughts! You appear to know so much about this, like you wrote the e-book in it or something. I think that you could do with a few percent to power the message home a little bit, however other than that, that is excellent blog. An excellent read. I’ll definitely be back.
