You might remember the selfie that straight up broke Twitter earlier this yearâ€“it was taken by oneÂ Ellen DeGeneres at the OscarsÂ and featured the likes ofÂ Jennifer Lawrence,Â Lupita Nyongâ€™o,Â Bradley Cooper, Meryl Streep,Â Julia Roberts,Â Brad Pitt, andÂ Angelina Jolie, to name a few. The selfie became one hell of a meme (my favorite was the Simpsons version), but a new parody might be giving the past memes a run for their money. The selfie just received the fashion treatment and, it’s remarkably on point.
Illustrator Tiffany Cooper swapped out the stars for the fashion elite and put it on a sweatshirt that we all need to own ASAP. You’ll recognize some of the perfect fashion-people-for-Hollywood star swaps, since the choices were perfect. Per Racked:
A smilingÂ Anna WintourÂ isÂ Jennifer Lawrence, for example,Â Karl LagerfeldÂ replacesÂ Brad PittÂ andÂ Alber Elbaz stood in forÂ Meryl Streep…Cooper herself is Bradley Cooper, who was the man responsible for taking the pic.
There’s something about the cartoony style of Cooper’s drawings and seeing these toothy grins on super serious types like Wintour that makes this whole thing both lovable and creepyâ€“my favorite mix. They look like scary dolls created to make your clothing choices seem inadequate, and I just want to dress them up and make them have tea.
The shirt is available at Paris’Â Colette, and retails forÂ $110. It’s more than I can shell out for a novelty item like this, but I can covet it anyway. I’ve always wanted a sweatshirt with the grinning faces of the world’s fashion overlords mixed with the whimsy of an Oscar meme. Bingo!
