Pope Benedict XVI, Hitler, Kim Jong-il and Stalin definitely scream fabulous in the Scott Scheidly Pink Series. These colorful portrayals reframe these seriously stern figures and transform them into completely absurd depictions.

The Ohio-born artist Scott Scheidly has a gift for entertaining the audience, picking the perfect deadpan portraits to morph. Using a pink and purple color palette feminizing these aggressively masculine men, the artist is sure to tickle any viewer pink.

This unexpected portrayal helps these newly effeminized leaders become fabulous fashionistas in their dainty duds. Schiedly takes it even further, giving leaders ludicrous accessories from blinged-out earrings to heart-shaped frames. Personally, I think Pope Benedict XVI's unicorn charm perfectly compliments his cheetah-print vest, while Stalin and Hitler make a statement with their military-chic looks.
