A post from Trend Hunter’s own Senior Editor Bianca Bartz was featured in Entertainment Weekly’s PopWatch blog this morning. The article in question covered a Worth 1000 contest that asked readers to digitally age celebrities and fast forward to the year 2040.
Famous faces from Paris Hilton to Justin Timberlake and Angelina Jolie were no match to the Worth 1000 crew. Entertainment Weekly was quick to note that while the whole image-editing party was a bit of "mindless silliness," it’s a "swell pastime" for a Friday. With 446,000 views and counting, it’s clear EW.com wasn’t alone in that sentiment.
