The September issue of US Harper's Bazaar features cover star Jennifer Aniston in a starring role as Barbra Streisand, in a shoot which sees her recreate some of Streisand's most stylish looks from the Funny Girl era.

Seeing Jennifer styled like this, I think that she bears quite an uncanny resemblance to Barbra, and I love the way the shoot has been given a retro feeling through the way the clothes have been styled and thanks to the 60's inspired hair and makeup. It's also nice to see Jennifer given a more kooky look, in contrast to her usually neutral red carpet uniform. I don't know whether Jen can sing, but if the producers of the rumoured Funny Girl Broadway revival see this shoot, I'd say she's got a fighting chance of bagging the lead role. After all, how fabulous would it be to see Jen belt out this showstopper?

Gemma Arterton for i-D Magazine, Summer 2010:

The way that this feature has been shot somehow feels very retro, and Gemma looks gorgeous, as always. I read in the newspaper the other day that her name is in the frame to star in a remake of Funny Girl, and I'm sure she'd be brilliant playing Fanny Brice, a role which won Barbra Streisand an Oscar back in 1969. Fingers crossed!
