Kate Upton is having a Marilyn moment.

Upton appears topless in a recent black and white photo taken by photographer Sebastian Faena. Faena shared the image on Instagram Thursday and the resemblance between Upton and Marilyn Monroe is striking, from the platinum blond hair and dark eyebrows to the sultry expression. People magazine noted the image is similar to the "Last Sitting" photos Monroe took with Bert Stern.

This isn't the first time the 22-year-old supermodel has been compared to the screen siren.

"I always thought Marilyn was so beautiful and iconic, it was amazing to even be mentioned in the same sentence as her," she told British Vogue last year. "But I feel like nowadays it's easy to be genuine and show your personality, whereas I don't think Marilyn had that opportunity. And clearly she had a dark side, and I don't have that."
