Sasha Fierce? More like Sasha Frumpy, and Mr. Math Teacher.

Some people are fortunate enough to have a dedicated team of hairstylists and make-up artists to ensure they look impeccable at all times. Then there’s the rest of us.

An artist named Danny Evans imagined what celebrity megastars would look like without constant professional grooming. And even though Kathie Lee defended her fellow A-listers by saying some of them would still be capable of looking great without a fleet of helpers, there’s no denying that they still wouldn’t look like “normal” people.

KLG and Hoda took a look at some of Evans’ work and KLG shared a few colorful thoughts about the artist’s renderings of celebs, which look straight out of the '80s and the local mall:

Scarlett Johansson.

Time warp: Scarlett, imagined circa 1993.

On Scarlett Johansson: “That’s a felony!”

David and Victoria Beckham

The world's hottest couple are barely recognizable in this imagined 'realistic' portrait.

David and Victoria Beckham: “That’s just wrong on every level!”

Brad and Angelina.

Awkward Family Photos: Brangelina edition.

Brad and Angelina: “She looks more frightened than usual!”

Madonna

We're speechless, and we're pretty sure the Material Girl would be, too.

Madonna: “This guy should be arrested!

Tom Cruise

Too many milkshakes with Suri?

Other subjects included power couple Jay-Z and Beyonce, Tom Cruise and Stefani Germanotta (aka Lady Gaga) who the ladies were able to recognize right away.

Carmela Soprano, is that you?

“Why did we know that was her?” a puzzled Hoda asked.

“Because she looks like that sometimes anyway now!”

Right you are, KLG.
