Update: as well as the video, you can now view the accompanying photoshoot of Andrej Pejic as Marilyn Monroe at the gallery.
Somehow we’re not all that surprised that getting into the character of Marilyn Monroe would come so naturally to androgynous phenomenon Andrej Pejic. After all, blonde and glamorous have become his trademark style.
The title of the video is as cheeky as Andrej is effective: Norman Jean.
From the video’s description:
Made by Prince Chenoa and Jacob Dekat from Love Cat magazine, and the filmmaker Jenna Elizabeth… The film deconstructs the cultural iconography of Marilyn Monroe (born Norma Jean Baker) by juxtaposing footage of Pejic as Monroe with actual footage of some of her more famous leading men (rumored and actual).
Says Elizabeth of the film, which was styled by Patricia Field: “It looks at Marilyn’s status as a sexual icon and explores the societal implications of the sex-kitten femme.”
