With that towering head of blue hair, we tend to forget that Marge Simpson has a killer body – for a bright yellow cartoon character, that is. So what better way to show off those famous Simpson curves than have her recreate some of the most memorable moments in fashion history?
Italian illustrator, AleXsandro Palombo, as far as I can tell, does not animate for The Simpsons, but is the creator behind Humor Chic, a daily society portrait blog which heavily features Simpsons characters as you’ve never seen them before. Regarded as “the father of fashion satire”, Alexsandro is known for creating a bit of a stir in the industry with his provocative and unflattering illustrations of celebrities and calling out high fashion designers on stealing vs borrowing designs from the past.
But Alexsandro’s latest series featuring the first lady of Springfield has to be his most entertaining yet, so let’s take a crash course in fashion history with Marge Simpson…
