A project promoting United Kingdom history TV channel Yesterday's 'Secret Life Of...' program envisions what antiquated icons would look like if they lived today. A fun artistic endeavor, the modern makeovers have been masterfully imagined. This is due in large part to the watchful eye of Dr Suzannah Lipscomb, an award-winning academic, author and historian, who oversaw the project.

Taking over three months to complete, the 'Secret Life Of...' project gives people a different perspective of each historical figure. Showing off their personality in a way that is more relatable, the series is quite educational. For instance, William Shakespeares is depicted as a hipster who constantly keeps up with trends while a modern day Queen Elizabeth I sports a Hilary Clinton hairstyle and a stylish, designer suit.
