Who is the New Marilyn, Paris or Lindsay?

7/18/2006 7:27 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Paris Hilton is obviously not short on confidence. But this week she took her self-love to a new level by comparing herself to the legendary Marilyn Monroe. "There's nobody in the world like me," she told the UK's Sunday Times. "I think every decade has an iconic blonde - like Marilyn Monroe or Princess Diana - and right now, I'm that icon."

But wait...we have another contender for "iconic" status. She's not blonde, but Paris' rival and fellow sometimes-pop-singer Lindsay Lohan says people have told her that she's the new Marilyn. "Marilyn's best friend came over at the event (at which she wore a Monroe-inspired dress) and said she'd been taken aback because she thought I looked so much like Marilyn. It was incredible."

We're usually not shy around here about taking sides, but I think I'll stay out of this one. There's only one way to settle this. Anyone have two short white dresses and a wind machine? Maybe there's a street grate we can use outside of Hyde? I'm sure our man Josh Levine wouldn't mind filming such a competition.
