Kate Upton is Marilyn Monroe on Vanity Fair’s 100th Anniversary Cover

Kate Upton’s Catdaddy recital for Terry Richardson may have been one for the skin-baring books, but it still doesn’t hold a candle to the scandal that was Marilyn Monroe’s breathy “Happy birthday Mr President” for JFK. Still, we can’t help but be impressed by how well the 2013 Model of the Year was able to channel the inimitable Hollywood icon for Vanity Fair’s 100th birthday (despite going dark from the ’40s through the ’70s) cover, shot by Annie Leibovitz. Her bright blonde pin curls, bright blue eyes, red rouge, and champagne-colored playsuit would have been just enough for Joe Dimaggio to do a double take back in the day.

See the cover, below, and pop some bubbly in honor of the storied publication’s centennial anniversary.
