Corrie's Michelle Keegan is a picture as Mona Lisa

Monday October 19, 2009

The sultry half-smile, the iconic pose - there's no mistaking Leonardo Da Vinci's Mona Lisa. But on closer inspection it's clear there's something different about this art classic.

Coronation Street star Michelle Keegan is the brunette subject of this particular photographic re-creation of the world-famous 500-year-old portrait.

Michelle spent two hours being transformed for the picture, taken to celebrate the arrival of a travelling Da Vinci exhibition to Manchester - Corrie's home town.

Describing the transformation process, the soap star said: "I had to be really pale and they powdered me down so much because I'm quite dark."
