Nude Marilyn Monroe picture on sale for 5k pounds
A nude photograph of Marilyn Monroe is on sale for 5000 pounds.
Christie's will hold a specialist sale in November to sell the 1962 photograph of Monroe, taken shortly before she died.
The provocative shot is part of a series called The Last Sitting, which catapulted American photographer Bert Stern to fame, the Sun reported.
Bert Stern clicked 2,500 photographs of Marilyn Monroe in 1962 for Vogue magazine, six weeks before the iconic beauty died.
The celebrity photographer published a book about the sexy shoot, Marilyn Monroe: The Complete Last Sitting, in 1992 and recreated those iconic poses with actress Lindsay Lohan in 2008.

James Bond to sport a beard for the first time
Daniel Craig will be sporting a beard for his latest Bond flick, Skyfall, making him the first Bond to do so. Compared to the tight blue trunks Craig had to wear in Casino Royale, it must be a dream getting used to growing whiskers.
Skyfall will be made on a shoestring budget as compared to other extravagant Bond flicks.
'They've really scaled back.'
'The lavish production and locations have been cut.'
'There is only a reduced cast and crew travelling to the few overseas destinations.'
'There's not so flash hand-to-hand fighting, it's gone back to blowing stuff up -- including London's Vauxhall Bridge,' The Sun quoted sources as saying.
The latest flick will feature classic car chases -- one of the highlights of Bond films.
Shooting for the film will start in London and Scotland from next month.
