How do you say “Happy Birthday, Mr. President” in German? Because Miley Cyrus was channeling Marilyn Monroe big time for her recent appearance on the cover of German Vogue.

Miley looks flawless on all three cover options, shot by famed fashion photog Mario Testino. The photos range from fairly modest — Miley in a high waisted black bikini and fishnet ensemble — to full on provocative — Miley shirtless and grabbing her assets. Her nails are red. Her lips are red. Her hair, well, that’s still blonde but it’s styled just like Marilyn’s once was.

Despite the obvious shared sexiness, the 21-year-old “Adore You” singer doesn’t draw any comparisons between herself and the sex icon, simply writing “blonde angel #mariotestino #germanvogue” when sharing the pictures via her Twitter (also where you can see that third option we mentioned).

The cover is a major score for Miley seeing as she was supposedly dropped from the American edition after Vogue editor Anna Wintour didn’t take kindly to Miley’s risqué performance at the MTV Video Music Awards last year. Obviously European versions of the magazine have fewer qualms about adding a little Miley to the mix...
