Happy Birthday, Marilyn Monroe!

Marilyn was born Norma Jean Mortenson on June 1, 1926 — today would have been her 83rd birthday.

Vanity Fair has paid fitting tribute in their June 2009 issue, for their monthly "Vanities" photoshoot (modern starlets in classic pinup). Isabel Lucas, who can be seen in this summer's Transformers: Revenge as the token babe, poses à la Marilyn. The photographer is the aptly named Norman Jean Roy.

Here is a photo from the shoot that inspired it:
