The new shot shows Michelle’s amazing transformation as the silver screen legend in a beautiful still from the film, which shows her in colour walking through a scrum of paparazzi photographers all shot in black and white.
Michelle’s peroxide blonde curls are pure Marilyn, as is the sex bomb hourglass figure seen underneath a pale lilac shift dress, and the actress has Marilyn’s famous flirty pout spot on.
The British film, which hits cinema screens in November, is based on the book of the same name by Colin Clark who worked as an assistant on the set of the 1957 movie, The Prince and the Showgirl, which Marilyn shot in England while on honeymoon with playwright Arthur Miller.
The film, which also stars Emma Watson, Dominic Cooper and Eddie Redmayne, follows the story of Clark’s week with Monroe as he chaperoned her around the UK after her new husband left the country on business.
The eagerly-anticipated flick will premiere at this year’s New York Film Festival, which kicks off on 30th September.
