Beyonce Comes ‘Out’ For Marilyn

There isn’t a bigger star right now than Beyonce, who fronts this month’s Out magazine in a blonde, Marilyn-style wig. Some of the photos (by Santiago & Mauricio) are quite reminiscent of Bert Stern’s iconic Vogue session with MM, without sacrificing Beyonce’s own persona or trying to supplant Monroe’s. Rather like ‘Queen B’ herself, the images attempt to cross cultural boundaries – and are quite tastefully done (for a change.)
