Designer David McCandless of Information is Beautiful has created a fascinating world map called International Number Ones. “Because every country is the best at something,” McCandless also offers the caveat that this accolade is “according to data,” which makes perfect sense once you study the map. Being the number one at something isn’t necessarily a compliment. Many countries are the “best” when it comes to issues that are morally reprehensible.
Celebrities and models alike seem to have everything together. They’ve got their careers and their perfect bodies going for them. What if that all disappeared and these stars who we’re all very familiar with were average people without the glitz and the glam? Photoshop extraordinaire Danny Evans’ series of Celebrity Make Unders for his ongoing project titled Planet Hiltron takes us into this bizarro universe where we get a peek at the slovenly alter-egos of A-list celebrities like Johnny Depp, Madonna, and Jennifer Aniston. In the process, the New York-based photo manipulator allows the rest of us to see how celebrities really are just like us.
