When stars post to Instagram, it looks like they are living a perfect life. Selfies on yachts, reading empowering books by infinity pools, “waking up” with full makeup on… OK, we all know it’s a bit of a fabrication! But one Australian comedian and TV host, Celeste Barber, has recreated celebrity Instagram photos using examples from her own life. And it turns out stars aren’t just like everyone else!
She calls the series #celestechallengeaccepted. She told ABC:
People are so obsessed with celebrities and celebrities seem to be so obsessed with portraying everyday people. I thought, right, if this is what everyone does — challenge accepted.
I’m very pro-woman. I don’t want to be bashing people like Kim K, I actually think ‘good on her.’ I think she is a smart business woman. From hailing a cab like J-Lo to beachside yoga sessions — I want to see if I can live like the privileged, rich and famous.
