Started by Georgetown University sophomore and Nasty Gal summer intern Chris Rellas less than two months ago, @copylab embellishes iconic art-historical images with trending designer accessories and logos and is, simply put, really well done. Vermeer's circa 1665 Girl with a Pearl Earring, according to @copylab, is Girl with a Chanel Earring. In an amended propaganda image of Kim Jong-il trekking through the North Korean snow beside his cheering troops, the dictator wears last-season Prada. In @copylab's twist on Delaroche's 1840 depiction of Napoleon, defeated and about to abdicate for the first time, the emperor of France wears a Givenchy Rottweiler shirt. Is that just irony or a psychological reading? Though certainly the former, @copylab is, nonetheless, a lot of fun. It's the kind of gimmick that makes you think, Why didn't I think of that?
