Strike a pose as your favorite old Hollywood starlet

February 4, 2010 | 10:00 am

The Peninsula Hotel in Beverly Hills is offering a service to guests who want to be photographed looking just like Audrey Hepburn, Clark Gable or Greta Garbo.

Hair, makeup, styling and, of course, that soft focus lighting are provided during the hourlong shoot. Photographer Roger G. James sets up subjects in a room, complete with props.

The in-room portrait sitting, plus two 11x14 black-and-white portraits selected by the guest, are $950. Rooms start at $555, which means you better have a Hollywood star’s budget if you’re planning to pose for these pictures.
