These Fashion Ad Parodies Are Hilarious

What do Gisele Bündchen, Kate Moss, and Penélope Cruz have in common? Aside from being famed fashion moguls, they have also all been spoofed by one particularly funny woman. Fashion photographer, stylist, and journalist Nathalie Croquet recreated famous fashion ads with a comical twist in a new project called Spoof, according to Refinery 29. The former photo editor clearly knows what she is doing, because the mimicked results are almost identical to the real life ads — seriously the resemblance is a little scary.

Croquet mimics the poses of high-fashion supermodels and actresses in campaigns for brands like Lancôme, Givenchy, and Isabel Marant — and the looks are so spot on, I challenge you to tell the imitations from the real thing. The French photographer went the whole nine yards with this, down to every last little detail, like the orange nail color in the Etam ad and the blood-colored lipstick in Givenchy. She's even got the models' facial expressions down pat, from the Zoolander type gaze to the seductive stare and everything in between. Who says fashion has to be serious?

Let's take a look at Nathalie Croquet's best creations from her Spoof series below. Hopefully this is just the beginning of the amazingness, because I need more of this in my life.

1. Lancôme

Is this Penélope Cruz's sister Mónica?

Work that hair, girl.

3. Paule Ka

Am I looking at the same picture here?!

4. Lanvin

She totally nailed the casual "pondering" look.

5. Givenchy

She can totally pass as a high-fashion model. Am I right?

6. Sonia Rykiel

Almost as chic as Gisele.. .almost.

7. Eric Bompard

How did she match the exact shade of pink so perfectly?


She is working that effortless goofy smile, just like Kate.

9. Acne

Can you even tell which one is fake?

This model may be out of a job soon.

11. Etam
