It’s “kind of nice to cut through,” according to Celeste Barber, who gained notoriety by parodying and remaking celebrity and model Instagram photos. The impossible standards of the beauty and fashion industries.

Celeste Barber has been criticizing the fashion and beauty industries on Instagram.
She explains that while editorial and art have their place in magazines, things are different on social media.
“When you bought a magazine, you knew, oh that’s Cindy Crawford being Cindy Crawford, but on social media, it got sold as, “This is what everyone looks like.” I was like, “no, I don’t reckon that’s how people really look,” or “I know I don’t look like that,” so I took a piss on it.
“It’s just kind of nice to cut through that a bit,” she continues. “It’s a look at celebrity culture, the beauty industry, the fashion industry, and the multibillion-dollar body-shaming industry.”
She became famous for altering celebrity images that might have perpetuated unrealistic beauty standards.
Cindy Crаwford, Nаomi Wаtts, Bellа Hаdid, Hаlle Berry, Gwyneth Pаltrow, аnd Drew Bаrrymore аre just а few of the fаmous people who hаve become fаns of Bаrber’s work since she begаn her television series.
