When it comes to playing dress up, no one does it better than the folks at Toddlewood (well, except Mayhem, of course). Each year around awards season, the photography company hires a few adorable youngsters aged three to six to recreate the best and most unique looks from a particular show’s red carpet. Naturally, that would include the recent 2015 Golden Globes.
Tricia Messeroux, the organization’s photographer and creative director, recently posted some pics of the photo series on her Instagram page, and the results are adorable.
There’s a snap of one dapper little dude dressed up as Kevin Hart, complete with a black tuxedo with white piping and a goatee. Then there’s the mini-Jennifer Aniston, who was snapped being interviewed by a film crew while wearing an outfit akin to the Cake A-lister's Saint Laurent stunner: a black, glittery halter-style dress with diamond drop earrings and a chic chignon.
The Toddlewood team was even able to transform one of the evening’s most risqué outfits, worn by Jennifer Lopez, into something a bit more subdued for one of the youngsters – and she nailed the look, perfectly recreating Jennifer's pose, complete with luscious locks, a glittery clutch and high heels.
Nearly every star spotted on the carpet had their looks re-imagined, including George and Amal Clooney (and her eye-catching white gloves) and Kerry Washington. Our favourite image of the lot is a group shot that features Tricia posing alongside her mini A-listers.
To create each snap, Tricia works with local designers to craft pint-sized versions of the haute couture designs. From there, she casts the kids and a crew of stylists and makeup artists set about primping and prepping them for the photo shoot.
In a recent interview with The Huffington Post, the mom went into some detail about her job. "I'd been doing photography for a while, but I started Toddlewood as a project in 2008, where I transform kids to look like iconic celebrities and people who have made a difference in the world of entertainment."
She went on to tell news.au.com: “It's actually a lot more fun [to work with kids]! They are so funny, they are eager to please, they are always on time and they give the best hugs!”
