8 Celebs Who Posed As Marilyn Monroe


Who is somebody that all celebs wannabe? Marilyn Monroe, of course! The original bombshell became a major sex symbol throughout her time starring in major motion pictures during the 1950s and 1960s, but she’s just as important now as she was then. It’s been about 50 years since her death, and Marilyn still has 13 million likes on Facebook. Sure, it’s millions away from the very much so alive Kim Kardashian’s 25 million likes, but just as Gloria Steinam’s famous PBS essay once stated – Marilyn Monroe will not die. Publications know sex sells and are even more certain that a sexy Marilyn sells out. What else sells? Celebrities. Combine the two, and there you have it – Monroe makeovers in all their glory.
