I Can't Stop Staring at These Portraits of Women With Long-Ass BangsS

Artist Eric Yahnker paints famous women with super long bangs. I love them.

Are their bangs covering their eyes to shield themselves them from the horrors they'll encounter as women in the public eye? Or maybe it's commentary on the pressure we put on celebrity women to fit an impossible beauty ideal that obscures the windows to their soul? Perhaps it's about the horrors of unwilling public servitude in an age when privacy means nothing? What does it mean???

Or maybe it's just famous ladies with long-ass bangs. (It's that.)
