There are a few things I never thought I would see in life, and included on that list is a male model portraying one of the most iconic sex symbols of past decades, but that is exactly what happened with this video of Andrej Pejic as Marilyn Monroe. Styled by Patricia Field (yes, of Sex and the City fame), the video depicts the androgynous male model dressed up as the original and ultimate femme fatale, Marilyn Monroe.
The Andrej Pejic as Marilyn Monroe video shows Pejic dressed in a dress similar to Monroe's iconic white one in the first shot, with a string of pearls around his neck in the next, and with a flower placed provocatively between his legs in the last, as Pejic writhes around while "Happy Birthday Mr. President" plays eerily in the background.
As much as I love Andrej Pejic and Marilyn Monroe, this video is definitely a little creepy and haunting. Watch at your own discretion.
