Recreating Celebrity Instagram Photos in NYC! Zendaya, Rihanna & Shay Mitchell (The Photo Shop)


– What’s up you guys? Welcome to The Photo Shop. (grunting) (laughing) What was that sound? – I don’t think that’s, I
don’t think that’s the winner. ♪ Welcome to The Photo Shop ♪ – So we were in New York. Which is the most Instagramable
City in the world. So while we were there we were like we gotta recreate celebrity Instagram. – It’s kind of our thing now, ya know? – We’re really good at it. – It’s what we do. – We decided to pick three
of our favorite celebs. I picked Shay Mitchell. – I picked Rihanna. – And for this first
picture I recreated Zendaya. – And I just have to say I
think your recreation was arguably one of the best ones
we’ve done ever on Clevver. – You guys have to see it for yourself. So just because so much
went into these recreations I feel like we should take it up a notch and instead of just
reviewing we should also decide what picture we
think nailed it the most. So we have to ask you
guys to pick your favs tell us who nailed it and
then drop it in the comments. I see you guys. – And like Sinead said be
honest, which means pick mine. – Which means pick mine. – No.
– Obviously. – No pick mine. – Or just pick the one they like the best. Which may be could be mine. – Or whoever nailed it
the best, which is mine. – Be mine. – We’re like those birds in Finding Nemo. ♪ Mine, mine, mine ♪ (upbeat music) – It’s another good morning in New York. ♪ New York ♪ – And I’m becoming Zendaya. Which seems like a near impossible feat because her beauty is
always so effortless, it’s one of the things I
admire about her so much. – So pretty.
– So effortless. – Okay, so in order to become
Zendaya we have brought in New York’s finest JoAnn Soloman. – Wow we didn’t even plan that, that was pretty great. Synergy. – Also that lighting JoAnn, wow. – So what is the plan for Zendaya’s glam. – So basically we’re gonna
do a smoldering brown eye. We’re gonna define the brow a little bit. And in very classic Zendaya fashion we’re gonna do a little bit
of luminosity on the skin. And then effortless peachy, nude lip. – She honestly doesn’t even look like she’s wearing that much makeup. Which is amazing. – Hair is super clean and detailed. – Right.
– It’s gonna be amazing. I think it’s gonna be great. – Okay, well if you think
you can make me look like that then I’m excited
to start like right now. – This is so cute. – I’m obsessed with this color. – Oh my God. – It is a really, really great color. – Can we talk about how
Bridget just took this to the fashion doctor
because it was long before. – We needed the extra fabric
because in the picture it’s obvious that her belt
and her headscarf are made of the exact same material. So we just cut it off. And we are going to attempt to make it into a belt and a headscarf. Which is a little bit nerve
racking I’m not quite sure how that’s gonna go but I feel
like we got some good cooks in the kitchen over here. – Yeah we can pull it together. – All I heard was when you said cut it off and I thought of Lori in a bob. (upbeat music) – Oh my God, Priscilla, you look amazing. – Thank you. – I love your hair butt crack. We have this extra fabric from the dress. We just have to figure out how. – I feel like it’s just a
little too thick, ya know? Because we also need fabric for the belt. So I feel like the
smartest thing to do here. Unfold it really quick. – This same fabric that
we gonna use for the belt. – Yeah so I feel like if
we can cut this like this. – Or cut I feel like cut. (talking over each other) I think you should cut this line first and then it’s thinner. – I feel like you’re right. I feel like we should cut along the seam. – Wait, I’m kidding. – Oh my gosh. That is not funny, I was like ahhh. – What movie is this? – Us. – Oh that looks so good! – Do you wanna see if you can
make a bow happen with this. – I would do a separate
bow and add the bow to the back of the bands. Now take that little piece. – I almost think like let’s
just tie this (muffled talking). And then we can tie the other piece. – JoAnn you’re like JoAnn’s Fabrics. – JoAnn. The bow is made now. Now all it is coming down to, which way is she technically facing. This way right? So it should be here. – Yeah, oh my God this
is gonna look so good. – Okay so you made the
bow you adhered the bow, you installed the bow and I
honestly I love it so much. It looks actually really really good. I can’t believe we made it out of fabric. – We nailed it.
– I know, damn. Awesome, okay. So I have to switch out my
watch for another watch. Almost done just have these
beautiful white heels left. But if you guys know anything about me I honestly can’t walk in
heels to save my life. So, I will be carrying these in my hand and rocking the combat boots
until we’re ready to go. I know it’s like a fashion fo fab but like it’s better
than walking in these. No offense, they’re cute though. (upbeat music) – So this is what Zendaya
wore on her way in to Stephan Colbert Show.
– It looks so cute. – You can’t see the studio
in her picture or the sign that is an amazing sign but she did tag it so I know that’s where it’s at. And I actually really love
that sign, have you guys been? – No.
– Oh, it’s gonna be so good. Come on let’s go. Let’s do it. – Okay Sinead we’re in the location. – I know this is it, this is actually the side
of the Colbert Show Studio. – We walked around the
corner because obviously celebs walk through the side door. – Yeah that makes so much more sense. There are a lot of people poking their head out to see what we’re doing. – Because they think you’re Zendaya. – Oh that’s it. By the way Nils is back. Come here babe. (cheering) – He’s her Instagram boyfriend. – Yeah he’s here and
he’s gonna help us take these pictures this afternoon. – So as you can see the sewer is over there way behind her so we’re gonna have to move back. Right? So Zendaya this way this way, this way. Left leg in front? – Left leg in front. – Left leg in front, way in front. – And it’s not on the ground. You’re like stepping
but it’s not down yet. – So let me just take a step. So if I was stepping I’d be like this. – Yes, oh my! It’s like you were born for this. And the arms are like weird T-Rex arms. It’s like hold my bags sir. – If you just place them
where they need to be. – Yes, sure. Okay we’re positioning
Sinead to be in this exact position but it’s hard
because it’s like an elevated, its not like a stance, she was walking.
– She was walking. Jinx. – Also can we talk
about how the blue cones are here and everything. – Oh my god it is (kissing). – [Nils Davey] Your right
foot back and your left foot. – She’s literally like. – She can’t put weight on that front foot. – So, step back and then step into it. – [Sinead] Okay and this,
are these hands okay? Tell me when baby. – Step on three, ready,
one, two, three step. – (laughing) Lift the leg. – Like this? I don’t wear heels. Can you show me how to step? – Okay, so, like lift, exactly. – I think you, I feel like that was it. – (cheering) Oh my God.
– You got it. – You got it, you did it. – Let me see. That was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done in my entire life. Where are my combat boots? (upbeat music) Okay let me just say when I fell over. The first thing I heard was Drew go, “Oh I just saw Sinead’s butt”. And I was like, oh my
gosh I was mortified. I was like how many people on this street just saw my butt. Because the Stephan Colbert
Show was about to begin so there were a lot of
people around the studio. – It was the sweetest moment
because all Sinead was concerned about was how
many people had seen it. – How many people saw my butt? – You have a great butt, no one saw it. – Not a lot of people
set out for their day and plan on seeing a butt. And I felt bad, I felt guilty. All right are you guys ready? – So good, yeah.
– Okay. – Aww cool! Sinead! One word legs.
– The legs are amazing. The legs, the face, the
dress, I love everything. – And your pose ’cause she’s
like walking into a step which made this photo
incredibly difficult. – It is 100% in the middle of a walk. – I think you nailed the arms. – But the one thing I do
love about these recreations especially in this scenario
is that the elements of the two pictures were so similar. – Something that I didn’t notice the day of how spot on your earrings are. – The earrings were like
such a good touch and even the watch.
– The watch. – The shoes. I love New York it’s such
a great place to recreate. – Mm-hmm and the bow. Did we talk about the bow. Okay so obviously this
photo of Sinead is iconic. You actually are Zendaya. But now it’s time to look at
the winner of the competition. Which I believe is mine. – I low key thing you’re
gonna be the winner. Because I saw it when it was on the camera and it looks like dead on.
– It’s amazing. – I think you’re gonna be the winner. – Let’s find out if you guys are right. (upbeat music) – Okay so JoAnn I am super
excited to recreate one of Shay Mitchell’s pictures she
basically is like the poster child for Instagram Influencer. And her pictures in every city
she visits are like unreal. What do you think for makeup? Because she’s wearing glasses in this. – Well, I mean right now I think your lips are pretty close is what we’re
looking at which is great. But we definitely want to add a bit of shading around the face. So I think that’s really gonna help nail this look is your hair. Just getting the perfect ponytail. Height’s important, straightness. Let’s get those extensions going. – Alright let’s do it, I’m so excited. (upbeat music) I feel like the girl from the Grudge. How’s the pony going JoAnn? – It’s going.
– I feel it, it’s heavy. – Let’s take a look. – Let’s look at it. Oh my god, I feel like a different person. – It’s like very 70s. – I know that’s what I’m nervous about if it looks too retro.
– Maybe it’s too thick. Hers is real thin. – Maybe we should take the extensions out and just use my real hair. And straighten my real hair. – It’d be sad because you
guys just did all that work. – I know, but I want it
to look exact, ya know? I feel like it’ll look. – This is, yeah it’s too heavy. – Yeah just use your hair. – It’s like dope, but yeah. You live and ya learn. How do I look guys? Am I looking like Shay? – It’s coming, let’s bronze you up. – JoAnn you are a goddess. – So I’m gonna use the NARS Laguna, which is my fav.
– Is my favorite too! – So by using the color directly on the hairline it opens
up the mid-path of the face making you pop even more. – Oh who knew. – And it sort of changes the face shape. – I love it. It’s interesting you’re
using the side of the brush. – Yeah, this is a color that if I were to put on directly it could
adhere a little bit too much. I think the lipstick
already looks really good. If it ain’t broke don’t fix it. – Yeah, you like it?
– I like it. – Okay, cool. Can you help me decide
what color I should wear. As far as like the dress goes
I kind of feel like this one. – I feel like you should go
with the darker red because. – Because it’s more monochromatic, right? – Yes, and this seems like
it’s all very more on the burgundy maroon side of things. – Also can we talk about the
fact that Bridget got the actual skirt that Shay
is wearing in the photo. I think they only had
one size left Bridget told me so this may be a little big. So I may need your help getting
a binder, clipping it back. – Do you want to use my bow? – Okay so let’s go through
the accessories now. I forgot that Shay is
actually wearing a belt in this photo.
– Oh that’s perfect. – So this might be the answer
to all of our problems. Sinead I’m gonna need
you to help me with that. – Yeah for sure. – And then what do you
think about this bag? I think it’s pretty spot on. It’s burgundy paten it
has the gold chain link. She’s wearing it as a cross body bag. – Yeah like inside her coat though. Which I like too, I like that look. – You love layers. – Let me see. – The more layers the better. – Yeah I mean it’s a little higher. But it’s fine actually. – Okay I think this is
gonna work perfectly. – Yes ’cause like we can
basically just make it work in the back. Oh but you know what this belt, we need to make a hole for you. – Oh there’s no hole here. – That’s okay, that’s okay. Don’t stress, don’t Stress. – I’m kinda scared right now. – I know it’s making me
nervous that you’re wearing it. But like it’s fine.
– Oh my god! – Just call me Tim Gunn. – Designers! The coat that’s the final touch. – I just don’t know if you want to put your coat on just yet. I mean I guess to see but the second we step outside she’s gonna want to take
this off because it’s so hot. – Shay-afy me. Lower, lower, lower. Watch the pony, watch the pony! – Yeah that’s amazing.
– Dude you look incredible. – Wait, wait, wait,
wait, wait, wait, wait. – [Female] No Sinead! (upbeat music) – Alright guys we are in
New York Uber right now and we’re on our way
to the Manhattan Bridge because that’s where Shay took this photo. Which is such an iconic place in New York. The thing with the bridge though is we don’t know which side
Shay took the photo on. So I think once we get there we’re gonna have to figure that out. – For the pony tail, this is obviously gonna be the worst part about executing this picture but it’s the best part of the picture. I was planning on just
whipping her pony tail and just hitting the ground. That’s probably what she did. – [Nils Davey] You were thinking someone has to throw her hair. – You know somebody threw her hair. – No I’m thinking she had legit a fan. I think she had a fan. – You can whip it like
physics wise if you just turn your head the right way it’ll do it. – Yeah, well that’s what she did. – But that’s gonna be hard for you. Because you have to capture
it when its flipped. – Alright guys we’re at
the Manhattan Bridge, we are on the Hudson River. It’s right behind the camera right now. We just gotta figure out what bench, or where the hell Shay
Mitchell was standing. – Yeah, we’re gonna figure it out. We just have to make sure where that this arch is not a far away arch. It has to be a close arch because it takes up so much of the frame. And I feel like that’s gonna make the difference with this picture. – This picture is gonna be so good because the view you guys can’t see
right now, but it is stunning. – And hopefully this wind picks up so my hair just like magically does this. Alright, should we do this? – Lets do it! – This is scary. – Three, two, one flip! That’s not it, that’s not it. – So I feel like her body
positions are perfect but this pony tail flip
like God Bless Shay Mitchell and her pony tail because I
don’t know I honestly don’t know how they got it so perfectly. – Ready? One, two, three. (laughing) – Oh my god, oh my god! – Okay now we know that’s what she did. – Oh my god, I’m gonna throw up. – You guys I’m sweating. – Okay guys I feel like we should go grab a drink or something chill because we have to wait
for nighttime for mine. – Celebratory drinks. – We gotta relax after that. I’m not gonna recover. – Two down, one to go! – I had the most fun doing this picture. – And I have never peed
my pants more than your guys’ reaction. It was like the Super Bowl. – It was like absolute joy. I felt like I had literally
just won the lottery. – We need to see this photo. – Let me see. Oh my gosh! That’s my favorite. Look at the bridge its
exactly where it was. The outfit, the hair.
– Bridget nailed the outfit. – I love this, this is my favorite. – It’s actually not as good
as I thought it was gonna be to be honest with you guys. I think I look really uncomfortable, like Shay looks so effortless. – I mean come on. We were so focused on the pony tail we didn’t really truly
put as much emphasis on matching your guys’ facial expressions. But honestly to me this
is an incredible picture. – All the elements are there
and the pony tail is really stealing the show. For me it was more about the memories than it is about this photo to be honest. – Just the whole experience plus the way this picture turned out it’s really cool. – It’s a good picture, to the next! – Yes, the next! (upbeat music) – Okay Sinead I am very excited because I am recreating Rihanna’s look. Right in front of the Webster in New York. This is the thing, the hair is done. – Right.
– She had braids. So it’s really about the
dress and the accessories and like the posing of it all. I think this one is
close to what she wore. – Yeah, I do agree mostly because the detail is very similar to hers. – And the scoop neck. – Yeah, and hers seemed
more of a neony pink if I’m being totally honest. – This color is closer. I don’t, yeah this is wrong. – Look at this dress.
– I want this dress. – Do you want to borrow my bow? Ugh yes this dress doesn’t even compare. Ya know the only thing it’s missing. – I’m not putting the bow on Sinead! Okay JoAnn, I’m ready for you! – RiRi! – RiRi, we’re recreating her Webster look. When she was outside for
her little fenti situation. – So pretty much we’re just gonna warm up your checks with a little
bit more of a rosey color. And I’m gonna pop the lip a
little bit more with a deeper more burgundy color. That’s pretty much the
look that she had going on. The brows are perfect,
the skin looks great, everything else is there so let’s do it! – Paint me like one of your French girls. – Blush is a really important
part of this whole look. You can really see in this image that she’s rocking some cheek color. To work with the dress. – Okay you guys it’s finally night I think we have waited enough time. I think by the time we get there it’s gonna be the perfect shade of night. – Perfect lighting. – I’m ready to channel
Rihanna is her proper name. – Yeah that’s right. – I mean do a little
twirl, do a little twirl. – You look good, you look good. – Should we get a cab?
– Barbados. – You gotta hail the cab! Show some titties. – I’m gonna do Sex in the City. How far do you have to go out? – She did it?
– Oh no his light’s on. – On is good right?
– No. – We got one! – Yay! – We’re great New Yorkers! – Where are we going? (upbeat music) – I’m here. Guys we’re here and
there’s trash everywhere. Yeah guys this is a perfect example of Instagram versus reality. We probably didn’t need
to take a 25 minute cab ride down here because you
can’t even tell that this is at the Webster but we
did this for you guys! – That’s right for the authenticity! – So we could see where Rihanna walked. – And also make ourselves feel better. And we didn’t waste a bunch of time coming all the way down here. – Well if you guys notice
her dress is way shorter. – Oh yeah we can try that. – And then try tightening these. – [Drew] How short are you going? – [Sinead] I just went as far as it goes. – [Drew] But then does it look weird? – No we’ll fix it. Alright well lets get this going. Nils had to leave unfortunately but Bridget, our lovely Bridget. – Bring in the Bridge. Yeah take those sick IG photos. – We’re gonna crush this right now, okay. So I would say she ever
so slightly out, okay? Make sure that your butt is
a little popped this way, and then hands on your hips but not like relaxed we
want them intentional. – And then that one should be over here. And then your face should
literally be staring at that trash bag. Okay so I got the light so it
looks like a paparazzi flash. – And I honestly feel like
we need double the light. – And we gotta be careful
with our shadows guys. Bridget how does that look? Look a little more that way. Get her leg over here. – This back leg hurts so bad. – Right here?
– Oh not that one. – Hold on. – Right over here friend. – [Bridget] This can be
cropped, so that’s fine. – Think of your hot prince boyfriend. – He has so much money! And he’s just showing it to you. Here’s my money. And you’re like (laughing). Okay honestly obviously
Drew’s hair and Rihanna’s hair are so similar it’s like perfect right? But the dress and the earrings they
look almost identical. Like this might be a contender for the most spot on
recreation we’ve ever done on this channel.
– And the boobs, the boobs are exactly. – Right, the boobs are pretty spot on too. (upbeat music) – Aw man, what an experience. I feel like out of all of them my experience was like very tame, ya know? It was nighttime. And it wasn’t that crazy. – Except for that man taking his clothes off across the street. – There was a man disrobing, yes. Let’s see it! – I’m so excited.
– Bring in the photo. – Drew you always look amazing! – I’m not gonna lie, I love it. – Literally they even photo shopped in the people behind you. It’s amazing. – Are you fucking kidding me right now?! – They really like superimposed
that background too. And like you can see any of
the trash, this pose, this dress everything about it this. – Okay even though this is good photo we still have to compare it. – Oh come on dude. – Okay, you won!
– I fucking love it! – Let’s leave, cool thanks.
– It’s the same picture! – Let’s talk about the essentials right. The earring literally
facing the perfect way. Your stance, your just
like embodied her so well. The dress is the exact same. – But also like real talk a
little unfair that your entire background is the same. – The background is the same.
– It’s the same! – I think two people are
a little bitter right now. I don’t know, I’m just gonna hold these. – I’m just saying I think
you got a lot of help. – Okay to be real we did not need to go to the exact location because we
literally we could have taken this anywhere and they just
superimpose the background. – Yeah we did go to the Webster
because we wanted it to be as authentic as possible. There were so many cars and things happening behind Rihanna in
order to like really truly make this look legit we had
to put the background in and it makes sense but background
aside like I said earlier Drew you nailed it, 100% this is awesome. – Okay, I’m very proud of us. Despite closeness to the original photos the experience was so much fun. – It really was. – Yeah, I think we should
get an E for effort. I mean guys we went
through hair and makeup. – I know. – We had to like actually
DIY parts of our outfits. – It was so extra if you think about it. We flew to New York, we got makeup people, Bridget had to go buy all these outfits. (laughing) – We do need to give a special
shutout to the MVP of the day the orange bow. That orange bow really did come in handy so many times it’s not my
fault that it got rejected. – That damn bow. – Honestly I had so much fun
you guys and now we really truly know that the
possibilities are endless they flew us to New York to do
recreations where else can they fly us to? Suggestions that require airplanes. Because we like that idea. – Also just tell us in
the comment section below who you think won? – Mine – Or mine. – I mean despite what you say,
I’m still gonna pick mine. – And tell us what other
celebrities you guys would like to see us recreate. That’s also so much part of the fun. – It really is. – Thanks for watching guys.
– Bye!
