22 Times Celeste Barber Was A National Treasure
Celeste Barber is an icon and an Australian treasure. That’s just a hard fact. If you didn’t know this already, simply look at Celeste’s efforts to raise funds for the bushfire crisis devastating our country right now.
At the moment the fundraising page on Facebook that Celeste set up on Friday evening has raised a staggering $34 million and it’s set to continue. Celeste is one of an increasing number of celebs and influencers using their social media reach to help raise money for fireys, bushfire victims and wildlife.
If you’ve been a longtime fan of Celeste, you’ll know her for hilariously roasting models and taking the piss out of the unreachable beauty ideals often seen on Instagram. She told Vogue Portugal in 2019, “I started doing those photos imitating celebrities to make people laugh and to draw attention to the way the industry treats women, as objects instead of people.”
Bringing joy and laughter to the masses is what Celeste does best and here are all the times she proved she was an Aussie icon we don’t even deserve.
