The Lindsay-Lohan-as-Marilyn-Monroe photos are fine (and nicely highlight remarkable breasts that internet debate seems to have rendered real) until you look at the Marilyn originals.  The difference is about being alive: sure Marilyn was posing, but she was playing with the camera in the moment; Lindsay was recreating, which is always, especially when verbatim, a dead exercise.

I think they were silly because in what way is Linday paralleling Marilyn? Britney, I could understand but Lindsay? Her downward spiral is totally different (and one hopes not as downward spiral-y).
