Eva Six is an actress of Hungarian origin who starred in three B-movies in the early 1960s and was considered a copy of the actress Zha Zha Gabor.

Nevertheless, even Marilyn's first husband James Dougherty did not recognize the fake and included the photo in his book.
Legendary makeup artist Kevin Ekoan made Lisa Marie Presley into a real Marilyn for his 1997 book Making Faces. He was such a master of make-up that these photos are still confused with pictures of the real Marilyn.

Susie Kennedy is a world-renowned actress specializing in the portrayal of Marilyn Monroe. She can be found on posters and in movies, she even recreates the outfits of Marilyn herself.

The photo on the right is an example of a sketch of a tattoo with Marilyn, and in fact it depicts the face of Susie Kennedy.
This is a picture of Marilyn, but not Monroe, and Waltz. She was a not-so-famous pin-up model and Playboy magazine's girl of the month in February 1954, April 1954 and April 1955.

These photos can be found everywhere on the Internet, and they allegedly depict moments of closeness between Marilyn Monroe and US President John F. Kennedy.

Sunny Thompson is an actress who plays the main role in the show "Marilyn: blonde forever" (Marilyn: Forever Blonde). On stage, she miraculously transforms into her heroine, so it becomes clear why their photos are often confused.

Photographer Andre de Dines is famous for his pictures of Marilyn Monroe and nude shots. But he failed to combine the first and the second, since Marilyn never agreed to pose nude for him.
