Lindsay Lohan’s latest photo shoot, a Marilyn Monroe-inspired pictorial for Spanish Vogue shot by photographer Alix Malka in the Hollywood Hills Wednesday, speaks to the actress’ current career ambitions. “The theme is glamor, cinematic, making a movie in Hollywood,” the shoot’s hair stylist Andy LeCompte, who tended to Lohan’s blonde wig, tells PEOPLE exclusively. “And Lindsay wants to focus on her career and get back to doing films, and this was a really cinematic shoot. It felt like we were making movie. The Hollywood sign was even in the background.” LeCompte, who’s been tending to Lohan’s tresses for several years, says the shoot “had a Marilyn Monroe-esque vibe,” adding, “there was definitely the conversation of Lindsay saying [she's] done it before, and that’s one reason we tried to do it a little bit different. I created a wig with darker roots, a little bit of Marilyn and Jayne Mansfield. Putting on a character is very inspiring for her. She loved it. She was putting on such a character. She’s always game to experiment with that.” At the shoot giving her moral support, was her BFF, stylist Patrick Aufdenkamp, as well as her sister Ali, 15. Lohan, 22, was a professional, says LeCompte: “She came on time, she was really simple to work with. Lindsay has a reputation for showing up late, but now that’s in the past. Now she comes on time.” And what about her thin frame and eating habits, which have come under increased scrutiny lately? Says LeCompte: “She looked great. She eats plenty. She doesn’t stop eating when she’s on a shoot. The first thing she does when she arrives is eat.” Lohan is expected to grace the cover of Spanish Vogue this fall. – David Caplan

Lindsay Lohan is Marilyn Monroe? Are you serious? Marilyn had style, curves…she’s to skinny and to pale.

Umm..

This isn’t attractive, at all.

Sorry Lindsay, you should go back to acting. Modeling isn’t really your thing. :(

What a horrible portrayal of Marilyn Monroe. Anna Nicole Smith was the best at portraying Marilyn Monroe.

She can’t hold a candle to Marilyn Monroe. Stop sullying Marilyn’s undeniable worldwide sex appeal.

Why is Lindsay always channeling somebody, doesn’t she have her own personality? As for attempting to channel MM – MM had curves, chest, hips, she wasn’t just a flat board. If you try to attempt to channel MM in the future, please eat. Lindsay might be attractive, but couldn’t she just try to be her own?
