On The Telegraph, a series of famous historical figures are re-imagined. The project was commissioned by the historical TV channel Yesterday, and gives a sense of how these people would have appeared if they were alive today. Pictured above is King Henry VIII:
Renowned for being vain and lavish, King Henry has been given white veneers and hair plugs to hide his balding head.
Known to flaunt his wealth, is now out of his voluminous puffed sleeve velvet gown and in a tailored designer black suit, wearing a sparkling diamond ring and designer watch.
Instead of the cotton shirt fastened up to the chin he now sports an unbuttoned shirt Simon Cowell style and is very much the modern day lady killer.
An avid sportsman and known for being conceited he has been slimmed down. Henry’s vanity would have ensured he would have retained the naturally muscly, rugby-player type figure he had in his youth.
Known for having spent a lot of time outdoors riding, hunting, and playing tennis, Henry VIII has also been given a tan.
Henry has exchanged his uncomfortable flat footed shoes for modern shoes with a heel.
