Let’s face it, celebrity fashion is often kind of weird.
It seems like every fashion designer out there is always trying to be more outrageous than the last, and celebrities are quick to put on the craziest outfits you’ve ever seen, as long as it means more press exposure. For one twenty-one year old in Milan, Italy, making fun of those strange celebrity outfits has lead to hundreds of thousands of Instagram followers.
Emanuele Ferrari, who goes by “Emi,” first gained media attention after he imitated the intricate (and odd!) dress Rihanna wore to the 2017 Met Gala.
After this image went viral, Emi gained over 660,000 followers on Instagram, and now his funny costume trolling has reached new levels of internet fame. No one is safe from his imitations, and each wild outfit gives Emi new ways to creatively copy the fabrics and textures, using only household foods and objects.
“I describe myself as a creative person, and I thought Instagram could be a place where I could show my creativity to an audience,” Emi said. “It initially started with imitations of web personalities, and people started to like and follow my creations.”
