Maybe I’ve seen too many reruns of the 2013 MTV VMAs… Because the girl shown in the 3rd image below looks like Miley Cyrus. Bright red lips, pale face, piercing blue eyes. Or have I just glanced too many times at Christopher’s recent article about controversial photographers (which includes a famous snapshot of the pop star). This girl is not Miley but actually named Cassandra, someone Hubert de Lartigue has painted on canvas. This French artist (once a freelance illustrator working in the packaging sector) is known for his hyperrealistic portraits of pin-up models. His newest work includes close-ups of plump lips and whitened teeth biting into licorice and gummy candy.
