It is possible that I could look at this sort of thing for hours. When I originally saw this post on this I did not want it to end. First of all, I love Julianne Moore and it's remarkable to me how she can utterly transform her entire being into these paintings with so much versatility. When I think of some of the Hollywood actors working today I just feel, "meh", and considering how I don't like celebrities, it's sort of a double "meh", but I do so love it when famous people are awesome, like Julianne Moore.

This is wonderful! I too share an affection to Jullianne moore - she's so lovely. I love this idea and I think the most interesting thing is how they took 4 completely different paintings of 4 completely different women and she transformed into each and every one of them.

Wow I love this!
You would never think it was all the same woman.
I like how the adaptations are faithful without being 'fancy dress'
