Harper's Bazaar magazine, actress Jennifer Aniston pays tribute to Barbra Streisand by posing as the "Funny Girl" with the singer's iconic silhouette and signature eyeliner.
In a series of iconic images from Streisand's Funny Girl (1968) to classic album jackets, Aniston posed for the photo spread as her personal idol, "a true renaissance woman," she told the magazine. It was her hairstylist, Chris McMillan, who inspired the idea.
"I was very flattered that Jennifer Aniston chose to interpret my style with the photos in Harper's Bazaar," said Streisand on her website. "I think she did a wonderful job. If only she had a bump on her nose."
The following video offers glimpses of the featured photos, narrated by Laura Brown, Harper's Bazaar features/special projects editor on how Aniston "got into character" for the images in the Fall Fashion issue.
Aniston recently launched her own fragrance at Harrod's and her new comedy, The Switch, releases in North America on August 20, co-starring Jason Bateman. Next, she goes into production on Horrible Bosses with Bateman, Colin Farrell and Kevin Spacey and also appears in Just Go with It with Adam Sandler and Nicole Kidman, due next February.
