Lindsay Lohan has paid homage to Marilyn Monroe by recreating the late star's final nude photoshoot.
The actress and pop star stripped off for New York magazine, wearing a blonde wig and covered only by a sheer pink sheet.

The shoot was done by famed photographer Bert Stern, who also photographed Monroe's The Last Sitting in 1962 - she was found dead from an apparent drugs overdose just six weeks later.
And 46 years on, Stern and Lohan have recreated the now iconic pictures.
Lohan said she was "comfortable" with the nude shoot, but admitted she had done 250 sit-ups the night before to prepare.
The Mean Girls star tells the magazine that she is a huge Monroe fan, and has even bought an apartment where she once lived.
She said: "If you saw my house, I have a lot of Marilyn stuff."
"It's eerie because it's this picture of her, and it's kind of cartoony, and there's a big bottle of pills next to her, and they've fallen over.
"Here is a woman who is giving herself to the public. She's saying, 'Look, you've taken a lot from me, so why don't I give it to you myself.' She's taking control back."
Lohan also told the magazine that Heath Ledger's recent fatal drug overdose was "tragic" adding: "They (Ledger and Monroe) are both prime examples of what this industry can do to someone."
She is no stranger to battling personal demons - last year, the hard-partying star spent time in rehab after being charged with drinking while under the influence, and later served an 84-minute stint in jail as well as community service.
