Internet personality Sierra Schultzzie is all about being confident and kind to your body. And one of her recent projects perfectly proves it. Sierra has been recreating iconic celebrity photos, but in a way that didn't overpower her own personality.
"I'm not trying to look like these celebrities," she said in her YouTube video. "I'm just recreating the pose, the outfit, the photoshoot. It's just gonna be me, Sierra, in a way I naturally am."
To achieve better results, Sierra teamed up with a team of professionals, including videographer @rubensamuelcortez, photographer @tonymoux, and producer @sky.p_. From Marilyn Monroe to Britney Spears, they paid homage to quite a few wonderful women and had a blast doing it as well!Sierra Schultzzie
Tony Moux, a photographer who worked on the series, was really happy to be a part of it. To him, this was more than reverse engineering the images. "I'm deeply inspired to work on projects and with people like Sierra," he told Bored Panda. "She has created a positive awareness of the beauty industry. What we find beautiful has had a narrow vision in the past. These photoshoots are just one way of widening that vision."
"Personally, these shoots have helped me realize how many layers go into a shoot. With set design, costume, make up and retouching, it's no wonder we feel that we can attain such beauty. I promise, it's all smoke and mirrors," he said.
Tony has always had a preconceived notion of YouTubers and influencers. However, working with Sierra has changed his mind. "The notion that they make random content and rarely work [is] not true at all," he explained. "At least in the case of Sierra. She works her butt off, nonstop. Every challenge she takes on requires a massive amount of courage."
