Model Kate Upton — whose career skyrocketed ever since she was named the cover girl for 2012 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition — has become America’s sex symbol. She’s the girl we all want to live next door to.
The model and budding actress, who is reportedly dating Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander, has been channeling another blond bombshell in recent photo shoots — Marilyn Monroe.
Monroe, a model, actress and singer — who was incredibly popular during the 1950s and early 1960s — passed away 50 years ago. She was once married to New York Yankees slugger Joe DiMaggio.
Check out the photos of Upton and Monroe. You’ll see the remarkable similarities.
