New York Magazine (NYMag.com) commissioned Bert Stern to take photos of Lindsay Lohan.
According to the article by NYMag, Stern suspected "she has a lot more depth to her." Lohan having a very similar situation to Monroe's "tripped" up career.
I don't know, if I agree... but, then again, I'm not the artist that got to take all the naked picture of two pop icons from two totally different generations.
On a somewhat related note, Lindsay's mom approves and is happy with the photos. So, that must mean that it's okay.
