Jennifer Aniston as Barbra Streisand

It’s Funny Girl redux. Or, at least, kind of. Jennifer Aniston has been transformed into Barbra Streisand for the September issue of Harper’s Bazaar. (See the pictures here.) Donning looks from Streisand classics like Funny Girl and What’s Up Doc?, Aniston does her best Babs impression, manicured nails and all.

The article explains that Aniston has long admired Streisand, the “patron saint of stage and screen (two Academy Awards, eight Grammys) and the exemplar of times-they-are-a-changing feminism, and that the homage was largely inspired by her hairdresser.

Aniston explains:

Her favorite Streisand films: “The Way We Were” and “A Star Is Born.” Both are pretty great.

The photos look good, but one can’t help but notice the way Aniston’s professionally scooped out nose works against her when she is trying to imitate the au natural force that is Barbra Streisand.
