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.

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.
