Have you ever wondered what your favorite paintings would look like brought to life as fashion? Ever wondered why you don’t just wear your favorite works of art every day, instead of hanging them on your wall?
I know I have, so I had a little fun on Polyvore and created ten looks based on famous works of art. All of these are stylish and a little quirky, and remind me of the artistry behind fashion, and all the ways different artistic media interact.
With these outfits, now you can be a walking masterpiece and have some fun with fashion.
Starry Night by Vincent Van Gogh
The Persistence of Memory by Salvador Dali
The Kiss by Gustav Klimt
Water Lilies by Claude Monet
The Birth of Venus by Sandro Botticelli
Untitled 1960 by Mark Rothko
Campbell’s Soup by Andy Warhol
Composition with Red, Yellow and Blue by Piet Mondrian
The Mona Lisa by Leonardo DaVinci
Nighthawks by Edward Hopper
I loved doing this exercise because it reminds me so forcefully that fashion is truly art, and that’s why I continue to love couture and high fashion. Say what you will about the industry of fashion, but the artistry is undeniable. Fashion, as these outfits show, is simply art you can wear.
