Get The Look and Get Inspired:
For the campaign (shot on Divine's birthday), each of the 4 KVDB Artistry Collective Artists transformed Kat and her 3 muses to Divine-inspired icons for the KAT VON D x DIVINE campaign: transformation and makeup artist Timothy Hung, character stylist and YouTuber Bejean, and 14-year-old skater, surfer and drummer Max Morse.
"I've always been a huge Divine fan. He was so iconic and so ground-breaking, especially for the time that he was around because he was not only breaking barriers in the regular world just being openly gay, but in the drag world as well. He made people question the conventional idea of beauty and he made something that could be scary to most people very appealing. That's so powerful." – Kat Von D
"I love the idea of changing myself into different characters to express myself freely, differently, and artistically." – Timothy Hung
Timothy was excited to pay homage to Divine. He especially loved working with Kelseyanna Fitzpatrick for his Divine transformation as she was one of his past students!
*MUA Trick from Timothy: Use "Bisque" (orange undertone) from the Kat Von D Beauty Crème Contour Palette to cover a beard!
"I truly love people like Divine for giving me the opportunity tobe who I am and stand in my truths. I also love Kat Von D Beauty because it caters to everyone. In fact, it was one of the first brands that had foundations in my shade." – Bejean
Bejean was tapped for the campaign by Kat via Instagram, and he was delighted to say the least.
14-year-old Max Morse met Kat when she tattooed his father, Toby Morse, a motivational speaker best known as the vocalist for punk rock band H20 and Hazen Street. Max and his mom watched Divine's movies when he was a child.
"He (Max) doesn't care, just like Divine didn't care what people thought, and that's how we are trying to raise him. Just be yourself, don't be a follower, be a leader." – Toby Morse, Max's Father
"As soon as the makeup went on, it was like POOF! He was in the mirror, striking poses." – Moon Morse, Max's Mother
