Australian comedian Celeste Barber has become a sensation on Instagram with her ongoing series, #CelesteChallengeAccepted. In this side-splitting collection, she humorously mimics the bizarre and often unrealistic portraits of celebrities and high fashion models. With a sharp wit and a dose of realism, Barber’s recreations add a refreshing twist to the otherwise idyllic or downright silly celebrity pictures.
The #CelesteChallengeAccepted series was born in January 2015, as a playful experiment to imagine how an ordinary person would appear while engaging in extravagant activities typically associated with the wealthy. The result is a hilarious and absurd contrast to the original photos. Barber fearlessly tackles everything from awkward contorted nude poses to humorous “wearing” of pizza slices and flowers, pushing the boundaries and leaving nothing off-limits.
Her ingenious parodies have earned her global admiration, even from the very celebrities she humorously imitates. Fans of her work include Ashton Kutcher, Cindy Crawford, and the Kardashians, who have reposted her photos. Some models have even admitted that they take photos specifically for Celeste Barber, showcasing the profound impact of her comedic talent.
The popularity of her #CelesteChallengeAccepted series has led to her upcoming tour in the United States in the fall of 2018. Fans can stay updated on her tour schedule by visiting her website.
Celeste Barber’s photo recreations have not only provided endless laughs but have also garnered recognition and appreciation from the very celebrities she parodies. Her unique perspective and humorous approach continue to win the hearts of people worldwide.
