Thanks to a Worth1000 Photoshop contest, the works of French classics Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres and Jacques-Louis David were transformed into modern celebrity shots featuring portraits of Snoop Dogg, Jennifer Aniston, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt by passionate Photoshop masters. I may not be a Napoleon fan, but Snoop Dogg sure looks imperial to me in that painting.
