Imitation is the sincerest form of Flattery

So said Charles Caleb Cotton. In the May 2009 issue of Redbook Faith Hill is transformed into the incomparable iconic blondes Grace Kelly, Twiggy and Brigitte Bardot.


So who would you want to imitate? Who do you admire?

I am a proponent for being yourself, 100% your unique signature. But looking at these images it got me thinking about who I admired enough to imitate.

Perhaps it’s one of these other Fabulous ladies as recreated by Photographer Daniel Pires

Grace Kelly

“Getting angry doesn’t solve anything.”

“As an unmarried woman, I was thought to be a danger.”

“Emancipation of women has made them lose their mystery.”

“I am basically a feminist. I think that women can do anything they decide to do.”

 “When Ava Gardner gets in a taxi, the driver knows at once she’s Ava Gardner. It’s the same for Lana Turner or Elizabeth Taylor, but not for me. I’m never Grace Kelly; I’m always someone who looks like Grace Kelly.”

“I avoid looking back. I prefer good memories to regrets.”
