Ben Liu designs DC Comic characters wearing Dolce & Gabbana
Ben Liu aka as Benda, is an illustrator and graphic designer who lives in Montreal and his art work has been showcased in galleries, magazines, boutique displays, fashion campaigns, newspapers, film festivals and theatrical productions.
This Chinese born artist, who was nominated Canada’s, 2009 Personality of the Year, decided to give DC comic superheroes, new and famous faces, but also a fashion makeover, dressing them with items from Dolce & Gabbana’s 2013 Spring and Summer collections.
Benda designed Superman featuring one of D&G’s favorite male models, David Gandy.
Gandy, who was featured in the fashion label's "David Gandy by Dolce & Gabbana", photographic coffee table book, is wearing a colorful jacket and he is ironically sitting on a toilet, reading a Sicilian newspaper, smoking and talking on his cell phone.
Another D&G icon and longtime muse for Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, was chosen to represent Wonder Woman, Italian actress/model, the gorgeous and sultry Monica Bellucci.
Bellucci is illustrated wearing the same sunglasses that Bianca Balti wore in the 2013 Eyewear compaign, and she is retouching her lipstick after a light lunch, and the lipstick is a nod to the limited edition, True Monica Collection, that the two designers launched this Spring.
Who could better represent the Green Lantern than American top model-turned-actor Noah Mills?
Mills has appeared in numerous Dolce & Gabbana ad campaigns, with his ripped abs always in the front line, so Liu dressed him only in flowered beach shorts carrying a dog. The pup is also wearing D&G sunglasses from the 2013 Flower line.
Super fashion and style icon, the late actress Audrey Hepburn is Selina Kyle, better known as Catwoman, is wearing a little black dress with a golden corset over it, and she is wearing the Moor earrings that were part of the Sicilian Folk collection.
This isn’t the first illustrator to make over some comic heroes wearing Dolce and Gabbana’s 2013 S/S collections.
Peter McNierney was also called on to make over Marvel’sWolverine, Captain America, Storm and Spiderman.
