Channing Tatum, Kim Kardashian, and 50 Celebrities Channel Their Inner Marilyn Monroe


August 5 marks 50 years since the tragic death of one of America's most enduring icons: Marilyn Monroe. In the decades since her death, the cultural fascination with Monroe has only grown, and references to the ingenue today are just as frequent as they were while she was alive. 

There have been movies about Monroe's life, most recently in My Life With Marilyn starring Michelle Williams as the starlet; as well as magazine covers and photo shoots with today's starlets doing their best Monroe impersonation (ahem, Lindsay Lohan). And of course, the music world would not be the same without Madonna's frequent impersonations of the star.
