Just days after Lindsay Lohan
's mother praised her daughter's nude pictorial
in New York
magazine as "very tastefully done," comes word that Lindsay herself is just as pleased with the photo shoot, a recreation of Marilyn Monroe's legendary 1962 shoot by Bert Stern.
"She is very happy with the photos...because they are art," the 21-year-old star's rep, Leslie Sloane Zelnik tells PEOPLE.
Mom Dina told PEOPLE
Tuesday, "I respect the photographer as an artist, so I look at them artistically. For him to call Lindsay 46 years later and to say, 'Can you recreate these photos' is an honor.”
While Lindsay has tongues wagging in the states, she’s thousands of miles away in Italy, attending shows
at the Fall 2008 Milan Fashion Week.
