Supermodel Lara Stone has recreated Marilyn Monroe's famous 'Seven Year Itch' picture to help launch Red Nose Day
Lara Stone has dressed up as Marilyn Monroe to launch Red Nose Day 2011.
The 27-year-old supermodel - who is married to British comic David Walliams - was pictured in the cinematic icon's famous 'Seven Year Itch' pose, laughing as she held down a flowing white dress, but the advertising campaign has been given a Comic Relief twist by having red noses flying up towards her.
She said: "I had so much fun being Marilyn Monroe for the day and recreating such an iconic shot with a Red Nose twist. It was an honour to be asked to take part in such an important campaign.
"Red Nose Day is such a simple way for everyone to get involved and raise money to help the people that need it most in the UK and Africa."
The Dutch beauty is just one of many celebrities who are helping to raise money for vulnerable people in Africa and the UK this year for Comic Relief.
Lara's husband David Walliams is also getting involved in the campaign, alongside stars such as John Cleese, Alesha Dixon, Amanda Holden, David Tennant and Alexandra Burke.
Everyone involved will appear on TV screens in the UK on March 18 to encourage the nation to raise money for charity, with Davina McCall, Graham Norton, Jonathan Ross, Fearne Cotton and Claudia Winkleman presenting the evening of programming.
Viewers will also be treated to funny sketches from the stars of popular TV shows 'Gavin And Stacey', 'Outnumbered' and 'The Inbetweeners'.
