Stars such as Katy Perry, Jessica Chastain and Kate Upton may not have been around during Hollywood's 'golden years' but their glamorous looks and retro style strike an uncanny resemblance to the pin-ups of yesteryear.
The most iconic pin-up model meets one of the most iconic pop stars of the 21st century. Bettie Page was famous in the 1950s for her killer bod, jet black bangs and baby blues, while Katy Perry is known for her retro styling, shifting hair styles and bright blue eyes…sisters just 60 years apart!
Grace Kelly famously left the world of Hollywood behind at the height of her career to marry Prince Rainier III of Monaco - a story that was bought to the screen by her modern day doppelganger Nicole Kidman in 2014.
Jayne Mansfield was one of the biggest sex symbols of her generation and appeared in a number of hit movies in the 1950s and 1960s. We reckon the 23-year-old Sports Illustrated model and actress Kate Upton is cut from the same smoking hot cloth!
Are these two blonde beauties long lost siblings? We had to do a double take when we saw new pictures of Gwyneth Paltrow channelling the late Marylin Monroe in a new ad campaign for Maxfactor.
We are convinced these red headed beauties, Jessica Chastain and Lauren Bacall were sisters in another life due to their striking resemblance. It even seems that Jessica has mastered 'the look' made famous by Bacall in 1944 film 'To Have and To Have Not'.
Diana Dors first came to prominence in the 1950's following her successful career in a string of British noir films, most notably 'The Last Page' and was known for her Marylin Monroe-esque style and risqué modelling. Much like Diana, Kelly Brook's banging beach bod' wins over the gals and the boys!
Sexy, flirty and classy describe the iconic actress Marylin Monroe, who became the biggest sex symbol during the 50's and 60's due to her voluptuous figure and platinum blond hair. Fast-forward 60 years and Kate Upton is emerging as the new pin-up with a string of Sports Illustrated magazine covers under her belt.
Can you believe that both of these gorgeous actresses started their career as pageant queens? Sofia Loren, who won an Academy Award for her performance in 'Two Women' appeared in Miss Italia in 1950, whilst Eva sashayed her way to the title of Miss Corpus Christi in her hometown, before landing her breakout role in 'Desperate Housewives'.
Just when we thought nobody could ever rival Audrey Hepburn's iconic pixie hairdo, Natalie Portman proved she could be just as stylish when she channelled the 'Breakfast at Tiffany's' actress and got the big chop in 2005.
Who could forget Christina Aguilera's retro-style? With her platinum blonde waves and backless dress we think the pop princess definitely took some style tips from Fred Astaire's partner in crime Ginger Rodgers, who helped revolutionise the Hollywood musical film genre with her sassy moves.
Side split dresses appear to be a favourite for twin-like actresses Christina Hendricks and Rita Hayworth. Proving that red hair can be sexy, Rita began to land a number of roles in the 1940's after dying her brunette locks scarlett and is one of only six actress to have danced with both Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly.
These busty babes, Kim Novak and 'Mad Men' actress January Jones catch our eye more reasons than one but notably its their almost identical looks that standout. You may remember Novak from her starring role Afred Hitchock's 'Vertigo'.
