Ever seen a celebrity posing in a magazine and wonder what it took to get such an effortlessly perfect shot? Australian comedian and performer Celeste Barber is out to expose this ‘Instagram perfection’ through some creative yet low-budget ideas. Through her Instagram account and #celestechallengeaccepted, she puts parodic shots of herself side-by-side with the original photos, taking on everyone from Kim Kardashian and Miley Cyrus to Kendall Jenner and Justin Bieber. These cheeky recreations, which often see her recreating alluring photos using banal household objects, have seen her skyrocket to fame, with well over five million followers on Instagram.

The success of her series has seen her meeting entertainment moguls and becoming friends with the same people she’s parodying (must be a bit awkward at first…) She’ll be exposing some of her secrets to success at Newcastle’s Tyne Theatre & Opera House on Tuesday 6th August, where she’ll tell the stories behind some of her most prominent pictures, her relationships with celebs, the comments that get under her skin and what it’s like to be married to #hothusband. Rising to her label as The Funniest Woman on Instagram, there’s set to be a good dollop of humour in the mix as she tells her story of being the self-proclaimed queen of everyday sophistication.
