You Won’t Believe What This Style Duo Used to Recreate Britney Spears’s New Album Cover
We’ve seen some pretty amazing celeb parody accounts in our day — from actor Tom Lenk, who recently crafted a Bjork swan dress out of cups that will blow your mind, to our red carpet favorite, João Paulo, there’s some FIERCE competition out there.
But Cosmo and Redbook style director Charles Manning and his coworker Ali Drucker just may have outdone them all with their absolutely FLAWLESS recreation of Miss Britney Spears’s new album cover.
Released just last night, along with her already chart-topping single “Make Me,” (which incidentally knocked ex Justin Timberlake out of the top spot — #sorrynotsorry), the cover features a ridiculously fit Brit clad in little more than a gauzy one-shoulder crop top, a matching mini (and we do mean mini!) skirt and one pair of lethal-looking thigh highs.
Using nothing but a little bit of T.P. — yes, good old toilet paper — along with some Photoshop magic (the duo even changed the album’s title from “Britney Spears featuring G-Eazy” to “Britney Spears featuring T.P.”), Charles and Ali knocked Brit’s look out of the park.
“Today at work, Ali Drucker and I paid tribute to Britney Spears in the most Cosmo-y way we could think of,” Charles wrote on his Instagram page. “With a low-budget but flawlessly executed and hilarious recreation of the cover art for Make Me, Brit’s first single in like, FOREVER! Hope you like it @britneyspears!”
Ali, as the staged Brit, said she was impressed with the durability of her chosen material (only twice did her “bra” split open), and revealed that her head-to-toe creation only took about 15 minutes to make. “While I probably wouldn’t pick this look for impromptu desert photo shoots, I definitely feel just a little bit closer to pop’s reigning queen,” she said.
As you should, Ali. As you should. You look great!
