Lindsay does New York

Lindsay Lohan has just done a photo shoot with New York Magazine. In these pictures, she recreated a famous shoot taken by Bert Stern of Marilyn Monroe. The photos were taken in 1962, six weeks before the actress's death. Those photos are probably the most famous taken of Monroe and were her last nude ones.
Stern was the photographer for Lohan's shoot as well. So, why did they chose Lindsay? The two women share similar careers. They have both become more symbols of sex than of acting, and their fame can be justified by their personal life rather than the films they have starred in.
Unlike Monroe, Lohan does not plan on a young tragic death.

Lohan called Monroe’s suicide “tragic,” and then added, elliptically, “You know, it’s also tragic what just recently happened to someone else.” I asked whether she was referring to Heath Ledger. She nodded: “They are both prime examples of what this industry can do to someone.” Why some and not others, I asked, since it has often seemed that the thrice-rehabbed Lohan might meet a similar fate. Lohan replied with a flicker of annoyance: “I don’t know. I’m not them. But I sure as hell wouldn’t let it happen to me.”

The photos are gorgeous. Lindsay Lohan is clearly posing for a work of art. She does strongly resemble Marilyn with the hair and makeup. Most of the pictures are NSFW.
