Julianne Moore posed as several famous paintings, including John Singer Sargent’s Madame X and Klimt’s shimmering portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer, for this 2008 Harper’s Bazaar shoot. Weirdly, this isn’t the actress’ first art-themed editorial. In 2002, she posed as several Vermeer heroines — including the girl with the pearl earring — for Interview. The next year, she was portraying as Ingres’ scandalous La Grande Odalisque for Vanity Fair.
