Legendary photographer Bert Stern has re-shot his 1962 Marilyn Monroe nude photo session with Lindsay Lohan substituting. The shots appear in the current (2.18) issue of New York. Intriguing shots — okay, alluring — but why did the session happen? Obviously because Lohan is trying to get back into it somehow. She’s trying to launch a new impression of herself that might sink in and shift attitudes.

Her career was considered all but finished after the last drunk-driving incident. The box-office disappointment of Georgia Rules and the total wipeout of I Know Who Killed Me seemed to destroy the myth of her box-office heat, if she ever had any. The last thing she did of any note was get randy with three guys while she attended the Capri Film Festival. What else is there to do except resuscitate the ghost of Marilyn Monroe and similar ploys?
