London: English supermodel Kate Moss has got famous street artist Bambi to make a portrait of herself similar to the iconic Marilyn Monroe`s painting by Andy Warhol.
Moss`s agent Leonard Villa confirmed the news saying: "It`s one of the best paintings she`s ever done. It`s a take on Warhol`s iconic Marilyn and I don`t comment on prices but, yes, it`s a five-figure sum."
Moss, 39, is said to have spent 50,000 pounds on the black and white oil painting highlighting her red lips, reports dailystar.co.uk.
"Kate`s been wanting to commission a Bambi special for months. She plans to hang it in pride of place in her Cotswolds farmhouse. Kate`s country pile has a lot more space than her north London home and she has a room full of art," a source said.
Monroe`s painting was made by Warhol in the 1960s.
