Socialite Kim Kardashian wishes she was a superstar on the level of Marilyn Monroe -- who is deceased. Even in death, Marilyn Monroe is a bigger star than Kim will ever be.
When Kim is dead and gone, no one will remember her. But Marilyn Monroe's star will continue to shine brightly.
Maybe that's why Kim is channeling Marilyn on the cover of Vogue Brazil magazine?
From NY Daily News:
The 34-year-old reality star covered the June issue of Vogue Brazil with a familiar look to Hollywood beauty Marilyn Monroe.
In one cover shot, Kardashian bares her midriff while in another she shows off her cleavage with elbow-length leather gloves.
Inside the glossy, the sultry starlet goes topless and covers up her lady bits with only her crossed arms.
The vision for the shoot was aimed toward a "2015 version" of Monroe and Kardashian conveniently happened to be sporting her dyed platinum hair at the time.
Mrs. West has since shed the bold 'do for her signature dark brown locks.
The selfie queen expressed her admiration for Monroe back in February around the time of her Super Bowl T-Mobile commercial, telling a fan she longed to pose for a pic with the famous icon.
