What happens if a normal woman posed for photographs instead of supermodels?
The fashion models that grace the covers of the magazines are always portrayed as prim and proper. They don’t have a hair out of place, not a blemish on their faces and they always look slim and trim.
What if a normal looking, average weighed woman decided that she wants to grace the covers of the same magazines. A French journalist decided to take matters into her own hands and along with a photographer, recreated the same magazine covers substituting the models on the covers.
Find out how the photo-shoot went and the final results.
1 The project
French stylist Nathalie Croquet stepped in front of the lens for pic project called SPOOF. Photo stylist Nathalie Croquet, from Paris, has reconstructed a series of sleek advertisements for the project SPOOF.
The exhibition comprises of imitations of ads from Givenchy, Lancome, Lanvin and Acne. In the pictures, Nathalie has recreated the adverts entirely, from the clothes the model wears, to the poses, make-up, hair colour and settings.
Natalie said: ‘SPOOF is an artistic project of 11 photos; we did an exhibition in February in Paris with my pictures in a big size. ‘I had the idea in October and we worked on it for two months. I have worked in the fashion business as a photo stylist for magazines and advertising for 25 years.’
