Celeste Barber is a thirty-five-year-old comedian who has taken the internet by storm with her painfully funny Instagram account. The mother-of-two may be based in Syndey but her photos have gone global, earning her 2.2 million followers.
Essentially, Celeste has made a name for herself by re-enacting celebrity photos in the most relatable and side-splitting way possible. From the Kardashians to supermodels and actresses to singers, no celebrity is safe from Celeste's mimicry.
For example, the comedian posted the below photo of yoga teacher Naya Rappaport with the caption:
"Nothing wrong with a bit of healthy competition. #celestechallengeaccepted #celestebarber #funny (📸 @mrsmillahs )"
The comedian told The Guardian that the body positive and feminist message that her account is famed for was totally accidental.
"I never started out for it to be a body positive thing or be like, ‘f*** yeah’. It was always like, this is how celebrities get out of the pools [and] I’m like no, this is how you get out of the pool."
