Portent?

Does anyone other than me find it disturbing that Lindsay Lohan was chosen to recreate, not an earlier photo spread, but the last sitting?

In 1962, photographer Bert Stern shot a series of photos of Marilyn Monroe at the Hotel Bel-Air that have collectively come to be known as “The Last Sitting.” The photographs are arguably the most famous images ever captured of America’s most famous actress. Six weeks after she had posed, Monroe was found dead of an apparent barbiturate overdose.

Let's hope the recreation ends with the photo shoot.
