NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – This Sunday marks the 50th anniversary of Marilyn Monroe’s death – but her fans are keeping her memory alvie this weekend.

In fact, TV 10-55’s Alex Denis has transformed for the occasion.

She visited Ellen’s Stardust Diner on Broadway with Erika Smith, a woman known as one the world’s top Marilyn impersonators – partly due to her uncanny resemblance to iconic Hollywood starlet.

Smith has performed for celebrities like Paul McCartney, Donna Karan and Roberta Flack. She’s even portrayed Marilyn in two feature films: 2010’s The Three Chris’s and 2011’s Before The Dust Settles.

We think Alex pulls off the look quite well! Check out the video below and let us know what you think in the comments!
