Vanity Fair's October issue marks 100 years of the magazine and guess who's landed the cover girl spot? Model Kate Upton and yes, she's doing her best 'happy birthday from Marilyn' thing especially for the milestone edition.

Kate Upton Channels Marilyn Monroe For Vanity Fair's Anniversary Issue

After she landed her first British Vogue cover last year, Upton has seamlessly swapped Sports Illustrated for high fashion and glossy lifestyle magazines and who can blame Vanity Fair for picking this blonde bombshell to promote their special edition?

Shot by Annie Leibovitz, Kate has got Monroe's glossy blonde locks and perfect pout down to a tee. (And is that a beauty spot we see above her upper lip?)

Let's face it. No one's really looking at the birthday cake here, are they? Plus - who else could look this glamorous in an ivory all-in-one? (This is how to wear nude underwear, Miley Cyrus).
