Comedian Celeste Barber has been taking some of the most popular celebrity photos on the internet and recreating them from a normal person’s perspective. The results aren’t just hilarious — they show just how “real” photos shared by the rich and famous actually are (not).
She started the #CelesteChallengeAccepted project to prove that images like this, the most liked photo on Instagram posted by Kendall Jenner, are completely unrealistic.
“Some celebrities on Instagram seem to think we non-rich, privileged people are idiots and believe what they’re posting is real,” said Celeste.
“I wanted to try to show how ridiculous it would be for a ‘normal’ person to recreate some of these photos.”
She takes on Kim Kardashian.
And this oh-so-casual out-and-about shot of J.Lo.
“I get a lot of really positive feedback,” added Celeste, “like, ‘thanks for making me not feel so shit about myself.’”
Celeste even attempted this gravity-defying pose posted by Serena Williams.
