Blonde beauty Candice Swanepoel has transformed into the world's most iconic blonde bombshell – Marilyn Monroe – for a new Max Factor commercial. The 26-year-old South African model looks eerily like Monroe in the new campaign, posing with her signature platinum blonde retro-style locks, knock-out red lipstick and glamorous red nails. 

The model previously shared a sneak-peek of her dressed up as Monroe via Instagram a few weeks ago (see below). The campaign also features an image of Swanepoel without the Monroe signatures, with loose hair and minimal, modern make-up. In January 2015, Max Factor officially announced Marilyn Monroe as its ambassador – for a collaboration with the Authentic Brands Group, who own the silver screen icon's estate.
