Surely one Liam Gallagher is more enough but this mini-version pictured by Gallagher’s favourite photographer Rankin is channelling his inner rock star for a good cause.
Rocker Liam is among 17 celebs including Kate Moss, Emma Watson, Sarah Jessica Parker and Paul Weller, who have donated their designer shades to this year’s Sightsavers charity Specs Appeal.
The charity, which works to eradicate blindness worldwide, is hoping to raise funds to carry out cataract operations, eye tests and desperately needed eye surgery.
Liam showed his big-hearted side and donated his famous ‘John Lennon style’ orange-tinted shades to the cause. He has been seen sporting the shades on various occasions including several award ceremonies. The spectacles come with a case and 1960s paisley print lens cloth.
And to launch the auction, which runs until Sunday 13 August, Liam’s pal and celebrity photographer Rankin has done a photo-shoot of mini-versions of some of the top stars who donated their shades, including a pint-sized Liam.
Rankin also captured the kid-versions of singer Ella Eyre, actress Sarah Jessica Parker, racing driver Lewis Hamilton and even a mini Michael Caine. The mini-stars are the children and friends of staff at the charity and the mini Liam Gallagher is Charlie, aged 7, from East Sussex
Rankin, who is an ambassador for the charity and has photographed some of the most famous models and A-listers in the world including Kate Moss and The Rolling Stones, took the images with the help of his team of make-up artists, stylists and hairdressers.
Sightsavers work in more than 30 countries across Africa and Asia, including Pakistan, India and Bangladesh to help blind people to see again and to prevent people from going blind where possible.
