Retro Snap: You Absolutely Know This Super Famous Actress

With absolute certainty. Though you may not recognize her here…

It’s Marilyn Monroe in a Richard Avedon shoot wherein she’s dressed up as Clara Bow (another famous actress, who you might not be familiar with at all, which is totally reasonable). I guess Lindsay Lohan wasn’t the first sex symbol who enjoyed dressing up like sultry actresses of the past. Although while Marilyn did that by wearing little red dresses and a terrible red wig, Lindsay does it by… wearing nothing. So, it’s slightly different, then. Different times!
