Hilarious Photos Show Celebrities as Hipsters

DesignCrowd, an online marketplace for graphic design services, recently launched a contest that can only be described as hilarious. Taking a high-res photo of any famous celebrity, they asked designers to use their skills in Photoshop, graphic design or illustration in creating the most realistic hipster possible. “Think of hand-me-down skinny jeans, thick framed glasses, vintage cameras, beards, maroon beanies, Dr. Martens, fixed-gear bicycles and non-descript tattoos,” they stated.

The contest ended on March 17 with 195 submissions from 98 designers. The overall winner was Free Imagination who created the image above, a bow-tie wearing, iPhone carrying Leonardo DiCaprio in a skinny suit jacket with matching shorts. See some of our favorites, below.
