Curvy popstar Geri Halliwell emulated her heroine Marilyn Monroe once again this weekend (25/26OCT03) - when she dressed as the icon for a benefit concert.

LOOK AT ME singer Geri has battled with her weight in recent years, but she was back to her sexy best at a AIDS charity event in Los Angeles, wearing a strapless purple gown and long gloves - just as Monroe did in the famous DIAMONDS ARE A GIRL'S BEST FRIEND scene from movie GENTLEMEN PREFER BLONDES.

Blonde bombshell Geri sang the famous tune, before launching into COLE PORTER's classic MY HEART BELONGS TO DADDY.

An onlooker says, "Geri looked very curvy, just like Marilyn. She is obviously very happy with her body and looked fantastic."

It's not the first time Geri has alluded to the screen siren - she mimicked Monroe in 1997 Spice Girls movie SPICE WORLD, and in 1998 she attended Prince Charles 50th birthday party dressed as Marilyn.
