Photographs of children are always adorable, because they remind us of our childhood. Toronto-based photographer April Maciborka captures a mix of young innocence and celebrity stardom in her photo series featuring children dressed up as famous American icons.

Young models portray icons including Elvis, Jimi Hendrix, Madonna, and Marilyn Monroe, while they are represented through both their recognizable fashion styles and their characteristic demeanor. While the children were of course responsible for getting the shot right, they also had creative input in determining the final styling of the shoot. Look through these photos and think back to when you looked up to a famous icon as a kid, as you may still do.
