Have you ever wondered what some of your favorite female celebrities would look like if they gained a lot of weight? That must have been the motivation behind Spanish artist David Lopera’s decision to digitally altar photos of Katy Perry and Kim Kardashian to look a lot larger.
According to the Mirror, the 20-year-old digital artist is making a name for himself by distorting some of the world’s most famous figures. Here you can see images of Katy Perry, Iggy Azalea, Kim Kardashian, and Mila Kunis if they were no longer Hollywood-thin. Lopera’s motivation behind these photos is not to defame or humiliate celebrities like Katy Perry, but to sell the photos to men who prefer more full-bodied women. In fact, David claims that the altered bodies of Perry and Kardashian look even better than they did before.
“Men are always writing to me asking if I can make their celebrities crushes look a bit fatter,” Lopera explained. “Emma Watson, Jennifer Lawrence and Kim Kardashian are some of the most popular requests I get.”
Lopera put Katy Perry in her infamous dessert bra. The cherry-topped whipped cream takes on a whole new meaning on the body of an overweight Katy.
The artist plays with varying degrees of robustness. Some celebrities like Kim Kardashian look only slightly curvier than their natural selves, while other famous women like Katy Perry and Rita Ora are given sizable bellies and even noticeable stretchmarks. It makes it a little hard to believe that Lopera isn’t trying to insult Katy Perry’s iconic form in some way. Then again, the Daily Mail claims that David Lopera is dating a larger woman himself.
“Look at my pictures and you will see that big is beautiful. For example, Mila Kunis is much sexier with chunky thighs and a bulging belly that hangs around her waist.”
Real life women like Katy Perry and Rita Ora aren’t the only ones who have fallen victim to Lopera’s plus-size makeover. He also re-worked an image of Princess Elsa from Frozen to be overweight.
“These women look much better when they’re overweight. I prefer Elsa when she’s a fat princess – that’s a real woman right there.”
Lopera found success when the image of Katy Perry went viral on the site Deviantart. He published the picture of plus-size Perry and got immediate requests to makeover celebrities besides Katy with a few extra pounds.
