Aniston wishes she had Barbra Streisand's
just one day or just one shower!
Jennifer Aniston, the popular
actress whose gorgeous hair
became a 'must have' style
in the 90's 'The Rachel',
has recently featured in Harpers
Bazaar paying homage to her
heroine Barbra Streisand.
Chris McMillan, Jennifer's
hairstylist and friend for
nearly 20 years, inspired
her to bring her dream to
life. "He is, of course, hair
obsessed," said Jennifer,
"and I'm like a Barbie doll
for him. So whenever we'd
see great pictures of Barbra
or a movie, he'd be saying,
'You have pay homage to her.'"
that's what she did. The photo

surrounded by iconic images
from Barbra's films like Funny
Girl and What's Up, Doc?

Girl, she's wearing a Gianfranco
Ferre dress and Chopard earrings.

Getting into character, Jennifer
says, "First, putting on the dramatic
eye make-up and the wig. Then hearing
Barbra's voice booming....." It
all came together, complete with
the incredible long fingernails.
The whole shoot took about 14 hours
and Jen was delighted with the results.

how it would work if Jennifer and
Barbra were to do a style swop.
Jen says: "I'd put her in jeans and
a great wedge and a beautiful blouse
and blazer. She's got legs, man. She's
got a cute butt. She wears little
black tights, she's beautiful."
While both actresses have had great
success in comedies and straight roles,
and Jennifer has recreated the iconic
images of her idol, the Streisand
lungs are totally unique. Jennifer
would love to be able to belt out
the songs that make the hairs stand
up on the back of the neck.
"If I had Barbra's voice for just
one day," she mused, "Nah, I don't
want to be greedy. If I had her voice
for just one shower - just a shower's
worth - I would be happy!"
Jennifer as herself, we can't
see why she would want to look
like anyone else!
