Paper Doll Style Dreams with @fantasydressup

To see more of Richie and Lucas’s red carpet dreams, follow @fantasydressup on Instagram.

Richie Talboy (@okrichie) and Lucas Lefler (@lucas_lefler) always feel bored when they watch red carpet events. “Celebrities often try to take a neutral approach,” Lucas says. “We wanted to give them a point of view.”

Using Photoshop, they started imagining the stars as digital paper dolls with sophisticated—and sometimes unexpected—styling. They shared the results on Instagram and Fantasy Dress Up (@fantasydressup) was born.

Richie, who is a student in New York City, says his favorite Fantasy Dress Up is Lana Del Rey wearing Céline Fall 2012. “I also really like Janice Dickinson in Christian Dior Haute Couture Fall 2013,” he says. “There’s so much excess in that look. It’s a ‘stealing-your-man’ kind of look.”

"My favorite is Britney Spears wearing Marques Almeida Spring 2012,” Lucas, who is an art director and set designer, says. “It references her all-denim coordination with Justin Timberlake on the red carpet at the 2001 American Music Awards.”
