Marge Simpson: Long-suffering wife and mother, wearer of towering hair, sister of chain-smoking twins and... fashion model?

That's right! The neurotic "The Simpsons" character finally got her chance to ditch her iconic strapless green dress and pearls for couture and bra cones thanks to artist AleXsandro Palombo, who gave the beloved TV mom a high fashion makeover.

Vogue UK was given the exclusive images, which show Homer's wife model iconic dresses such as Spice Girl Geri Halliwell's Union Jack mini, Kate Middleton's engagement dress and Madonna's Jean Paul Gaultier bustier.

"There is a Marge Simpson is every women," Palombo told Vogue, "and with this tribute I wanted to ignite the magic that is in every women; the strength, femininity, elegance, eroticism and beauty, I made a strict and careful selection of what, in my opinion, has really influenced the style of the last 100 years. Each of these dresses really changed the course of the history of costume, giving a new aesthetic vision that has anticipated major changes in our society. We may not consider these clothes as art, but the aesthetic vision that they emanate has played an important role in giving strength to the path of emancipation of women since 1900. In many cases it's the dress that has transformed a woman into an icon, but in many others, it's the personality of the women that has enlightened the dress."

Other iconic outfits include the Catherine Walker gown that Princess Diana wore when she danced with John Travolta, Julia Roberts' Valentino she sported when she won an Oscar in 2001 and Jackie Kennedy's famous pink suit and pillbox hat.

Best of all, Marge takes on the body shape of all the beautiful women in each drawing!

This isn't the first time the Simpsons went gaga for couture; Harper's Bazaar magazine featured the zany family in an illustrated "photo shoot" which showed them dressing up in the latest fashions alongside Canadian supermodel Linda Evangelista.

Even Playboy got their hands on the blue-haired vixen when she posed for the adult magazine in nothing but her skivvies.
