Lindsay Lohan Poses as Marilyn Monroe in New York Magazine

Having gone blonde a few years back, it was probably inevitable that Lindsay Lohan would start channeling another blonde movie star from an earlier era, Marilyn Monroe. And now she's gone Marilyn in a big way: recreating a famous series of photographs in which Monroe posed in the buff.

Photographer Bert Stern took the famous photos of Marilyn Monroe in 1962, in a session that came to be known as “The Last Sitting.” Monroe was found dead a month and a half later.

Now Lindsay Lohan has remade that legendary series of photos for New York Magazine's Spring fashion issue. Once again Bert Stern is the photographer, and Lohan is posing in the altogether, just as Marilyn was, in a series of erotic poses: on a bed, with scarves (barely) covering areas that cannot be shown in a general-interest magazine, and more.

You can view some of the Lindsay Lohan as Marilyn Monroe photos at New York Magazine's Web site. I'm guessing you can see lots more in the magazine itself.

Let's hope that Lohan, who has already had a long history of substance abuse and personal problems in her young life, lives a much longer life than Marilyn Monroe.
