Benjaphorn “Sine” Chetsadakan is a 22-year-old from Ratchaburi, Thailand, whose parents apparently never told her not to play with food. And it’s a good thing, too, because she’s really, really good at it.
Sine, who is also a plus-size model, takes inspiration from Hollywood’s most fashionable women and then uses supplies found at the local market to recreate the looks.
It was her take on Thai actress Chompoo Araya’s salmon-hued ballgown at the Cannes Film Festival two years ago that first sparked Sine’s creativity. Instead of spending thousands on that same designer dress, the model filled clear plastic bags with shrimp chips, giving the same textured effect of the original dress.
Pretty impressive, right?
Based on some of her other awesome creations, Sine seems to be a Riri fan. She recreated Rihanna’s most recent look from the Met Gala (remember the theme, Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination?), but instead of a shimmering silver headpiece, Sine’s was a collection of spices stacked beside one another. Literally spicy.
She also recreated Rihanna’s 2017 Met Gala dress, using carefully folded pieces of deli meat to get the look… which probably didn’t produce the most appealing smell after an hour in the sun. Nonetheless, so well done.
Most recently, Sine paid homage to Chinese actress Fan Bingbing and the frilly frock she wore at Cannes, but instead of layers of tulle, the creative used layers upon layers of kale and carried a pot instead of a clutch. Yes, this is high fibre fashion if there ever was such a thing.
But it’s not just the red carpet where Sine is finding inspo. She’s recreated fashion editorial shoots straight off magazine pages, like this puffer coat made from potato chip bags:
Or this interpretation of Gucci’s fall/winter runway where models carried faux decapitated human heads in real life, but Sine opted for a swine head in her version:
But she’s not just limited to food… nope. Who says surfboards are the only boards worth posing next to?
This is one young woman who clearly has an eye for fashion as well as a talent for design, and thanks to the power of social media, it’s not just her grocery store cashier or friends and family that get to gawk at her whimsical creations—the rest of the world does, too.
