Every December, the Tate Britain debuts its much-anticipated Christmas tree. Designed by a different contemporary artist each year, the famed museum’s trees are both yuletide decorations and works of modern art. This year, Iranian installation artist Shirazeh Houshiary has quite literally turned the tradition on its head with her upside-down evergreen. Suspended by its trunk, the tree hovers above the main entrance’s stunning spiral staircase.
Whether you find this is incredibly adorable or unbelievably creepy, you can’t help but be impressed by how photographer Tricia Messeroux of Toddlewood transforms young children into famous celebrities. For birthday parties or other special events, New York-based Messeroux works with a whole team of people to give children, mostly between the ages of 3 and 6, the ultimate red carpet experience. Her professional team includes costume designers, hair and makeup artists and a production crew.
Just a few days after the Golden Globes, Messeroux put out these side by side photos of children channeling their inner star. From the hair to the gowns to the poses, these miniature makeovers are shockingly accurate!
