Marilyn Monroe is an iconic figure in pop culture as well as a cautionary tale. Her allure appeals to men and women alike, and for some reason every actress has to pose like her at some point in her career. This list is compiled of 25 actresses that have posed as Marilyn Monroe. Some good (Madonna, Gwen Stefani) some bad (Kate Upton, Michelle Williams), and some down right awful (Jennifer Lopez, Mira Sorvino). All that continues to be proven from these attempts is that Monroe was a one of a kind star, and all those that try to emulate her fall short.

Maybe it's because Marilyn Monroe perfected blonde hair, red lips, and a shy come hither pose, but whenever someone pulls that look together you automatically see it as an impostor. So when Scarlett Johansson said she was not "channeling" Marilyn Monroe in her Dolce and Gabba ads people scratched their heads.

ScarJo "doesn't channel" Monroe a lot....

Michelle Williams actually played Monroe (well enough to earn her an Oscar nom) in the film "My Week With Marilyn". Williams still took a lot of flack for not looking like the star.
