Life Imitates Art

Real life imitating art.

Actually, I would call this Art Imitates Art. The Souper Dress: a screenprinted paper pop art dress that was made and sold by Campbell’s Soup Company in the late 1960s. This dress was inspired by Andy Warhol’s 1962 artwork titled Campbell’s Soup Cans.

What detail!

Life imitating art. This one's funny!
