Fashion and Art are a match made in heaven,
And amidst these troubling times, we are clinging to all forms of enjoyable art to enjoy a moment of release.
This pushed me to curate these stunning supermodels who recreated
and slayed the lives of the subjects in some of the world’s most iconic paintings,
in the exact same manner as they stormed the runway.
Winne Harlow Meets Mona Lisa
Firstly, Winnie masterfully Redefined The Mona Lisa artwork, by Leonardo da Vinci
wearing Denis Colomb stoles (worn as a headdress, top and sleeves)
which is available deniscolomb.com for $395-$445.
Halima Aden Meets Girl With a Pearl Earring
After Winnie, Halima reinvented Fashion by being the first female to appear on the cover of Vogue wearing a Hijab and she wasn’t ready to get off that reinvention train as she posed as The young woman in Dutch master Johannes Vermeer’s Girl With a Pearl Earring.
She covers her head and neck with a scarf every day of her life, so she had no issues sliding into this role.
The caucasian female subject of the painting was outshone by the ethereal Somalian model who confessed that this was the first-ever time she’d be showing her earlobe.
“I have both my ears pierced,” says the 20-year-old Somali-American beauty, but I’d never shown them before. It was just for me.
With I’ve worn so many different things as a hijab at this point,” she says of her Delft blue headscarf. Nothing fazes me.
Emily Ratajowski in Girl With a Pearl Earring
Emily Ratajowski also made a play at Girl With a Pearl Earring and embodied the look proving that fashion and art are a true match!
It was all in an effort to market her female-powered clothing brand Inamorata Woman.
Emily superimposed her face on Johannes Vermeer’s famous painting “Girl with a Pearl Earring” for the accessories campaigns.
She swapped the classic pearl featured on the original earlobe for the brand, Inamorata’s own figure-shaped earring.
